Stettler’s minor baseball teams concluded league play last week with action at home and on the road.

The bantam Sliders, including Jace Salmon and Ryland Stefanik, defeated Rimbey 12-4 after losing 22-13 to Rocky Mountain House last Thursday in Stettler. Stettler placed second in the Central Alberta baseball League.

“Overall, we had a great year, winning the Rimbey and Lacombe baseball tournaments, and ending up with an overall record of 17 wins, two losses and one tie,” said Stettler coach Scott Sylvester.

At the peewee level, Stettler concluded its season in style, posting a 9-6 win over Sylvan Lake and a 9-2 win over Rocky Mountain House. In the game at Rocky, Tye Mulgrove and Paul Georget split the pitching duties for Stettler, which got an inside-the-park grand slam from Jaden Richards in the third inning. Stettler was unbeaten in league play.

Meanwhile, the Stettler mosquitos — including David Butterwick, Jared Lee and Ty Dowling — beat Spruceview 21-9 and tied Rocky Mountain House 15-15, thanks to five Stettler runs in the final inning. The mosquito Slammers lost just two games on the season. A combined mosquito team will continue play through provincial playdowns.

The Stettler mosquitos host the first round of provincials, with two games Saturday and one game Sunday.
