Five players from the Stettler area are members of the Lacombe Dodgers team bound for the provincial midget competitive Tier 1 baseball championship this weekend in Acme and area.

The eight-team tournament begins Friday and runs through Sunday at the Acme and Beiseker fields.

The Stettler region representatives are Micah Croker, Jordan McCallum and Stephen Zuk, and Erskine brothers Quade and Riley Anderson. Croker plays outfield and pitches, McCallum mans first base, Zuk is a second baseman and pitcher, Quade Anderson is an overage catcher, and Riley Anderson plays third base and usually bats cleanup.

The Dodgers posted a 4-4 record in provincial qualifying action, enabling them to scout many of the teams headed to the provincials. The Dodgers lost to Rocky Mountain House last weekend in a game that enabled Rocky (4-4) to reach the provincials. Lacombe had already secured its berth in the provincial championship, for which Red Deer and Vegreville are among the top contenders.

Lacombe’s pool games are at Beiseker, starting Friday at noon against Vegreville. On Saturday, the Dodgers face Rocky at 9 a.m. and Grande Prairie at 3 p.m.
