This 9U Quinte Royals team is showing huge potential and promise for Quinte baseball for years to come.
This team is made up of 12 players from all parts of the Quinte area including Trenton, Belleville, Frankford, Stirling, Shannonville and Prince Edward County.
After only playing a handful of games in 2020 they were excited and eager to get back on the field this season. This group of talented young individuals practised hard and have grown in leaps and bounds in a short period of time.
These kids have grown as a team but more importantly as a group of friends. It’s been amazing to see how this group of baseball players have come in such a short period of time. They all have their positions they like to play, however they have adapted to other positions with ease which makes them that much harder to play against.
When it comes to the offensive side of the game this team is plain scary! Every single player has the ability to hit for extra bases, and on most occasions they do. In the month of July, they played teams from Kawartha, Whitby, Pickering, and Northumberland and ended the month with an incredible record of 11 wins and 1 loss.
In their first 12 games they have shown that even when times are hard, as a group, they can pull together and make things happen.
Not all these games went the way they wanted and how they thought but this group has no quit and the record shows. The only loss they had was a great stepping stone to show these kids what happens when you don’t quit. After the 2nd inning they were down and out and then the bats came alive and each inning they just kept plugging away and came up 1 run short from making a complete comeback.
The month of August will be a busy but fun month of baseball as the 9U Quinte Royals will be participating in the August Madness tournament as they have their sights set on a provincial championship.
Round 1 began for this group August 6 as they traveled to Clarington followed by back to back double header days on the 7th and 8th in Pickering and finish up on August 14th back at home in Trenton.
The results from these games will determine when and where Round 2 will take them. Stay Tuned!
BE LOUD, BE PROUD AND HAVE FUN and nothing will stop this group of young athletes.
