The Langley Baseball 9-10 District 3 – Fraser Valley Little League team defeated perennial powerhouse Whalley in the final game of the round-robin series Sunday at City Park, forcing an end to the game under the mercy rule after just four innings after Langley was leading 12-2.
“That was the only mercy in the tournament,” said team manager Cornell Pich.
District 3 has a reputation for being tough and competitive, and it’s been several years since a Langley team has made it to the top.
In fact, Langley was undefeated throughout the round-robin series.
Pich said no single Langley player can take credit for the win.
“We have no superstars,” Pich said.
“It’s truly a team effort. It’s a complete team from top to bottom.”
Next up for Langley is the week-long provincial 9/10s championships in Victoria that start Saturday.
