Crandall Chargers Heading to Baseball Nationals

MONCTON, NB – For the second year in a row, the Crandall Chargers are heading to the CIBA Nationals. A year after successfully hosting the event, the Chargers now play the role of guests as they head to Ottawa from October 18-21.

Crandall joins Cape Breton University, St Clair College, 2011 National Champion Durham College, McGill University and host Carleton University for national bragging rights. Tournament play begins on Thursday and runs through the weekend, with a champion being crowned on Sunday.

The Chargers qualified for the nationals last weekend after sweeping Dalhousie in two games in the Atlantic Conference semifinals. They square off against Cape Breton this weekend in a best of three to determine the Atlantic Champion and seeding for the nationals. First two games are scheduled for Kiwanis Park on Saturday, October 13 at 1pm and 3pm.

Crandall won their second straight regular season title with a 9-3 record in the Atlantic Conference. Pitchers Keith Nickerson (4th, BA) and Ben Wistrom (2nd, RS) accomplished a rare feat by throwing back to back no-hitters in a double header, while ace Dan Proctor (4th, BSc) has a 4-0 record. Jerry Jesseau (1st, BA) led the team with 2 saves. Crandall has been led offensively by the Vautour brothers – Serge (2nd, ED) batting .500 with a team leading 2 HR/10 RBI and the younger Luc (3rd, ID) hitting .459 with a team high 16 runs scored. Two time Canadian batting champion Adem Campbell (2nd, ED) was the only other Charger to eclipse the .400 batting mark, while Proctor, Shawn MacKenzie (2nd, ALPS) and Corey Parker (1st, ED) all hit over .300. Colton Conrad (4th, RS) and Adam Melanson (2nd, BA) have also contributed to Crandall’s remarkable season.
