When the Chilliwack Vipers step up to bat at the 2013 U16 Western Canadian Fast Pitch Championships, they’ll be getting help from 100 Mile House player Conner Edle.
A team member of the Williams Lake Prospectors Bantam A squad and sometimes pitcher for the 100 Mile Men’s Fastball League, Edle was picked up by the Vipers at the recent Bantam A Provincials.
“I made a few good plays and they asked if I wanted to play for them at Westerns,” says Edle. “I was pretty surprised.”
The Vipers are the 2013 Bantam A Provincial Champions and will compete at Westerns, in Winnipeg, Aug. 2-5.
Edle has been playing ball for the past seven years, and with no Bantam division team in 100 Mile House this year, he played all season with the Prospectors and the local men’s fastball league, alongside his dad, Greg Edle.
He expects to play centre field for the Vipers and is pretty excited.
“I’d always hoped for something like this.”
