The AA Aurora King Jays Mosquito team defended their 2017 title, going undefeated for the second year in a row at the Kingston Thunder Mosquito tournament on June 8th-10th.

The team’s 3 straight wins in the round robin positioned them well for the elimination rounds.  To kick-off the round robin on Friday night, the Jays beat North Toronto 14-1.  Saturday saw two more wins with the boys beating the host Kingston Thunder 21-9, followed by an excellent come from behind 6-5 win over the Seaway Surge to secure the 2nd seed for the quarter-final round.  Saturday night saw the Jays cruise to a 14-4 win vs Cambridge in the quarter-finals. On Sunday in the semi-final, the Jays held on to beat Kanata 15-9. The team followed that up later on Sunday afternoon with a resounding 14-2 victory over the Bolton Braves in the finals, in what may be the most complete game this team has ever played.  This tournament victory was a complete team effort that saw key contributions from all 12 players at varying times throughout the weekend.  By Sunday the defence was bullet-proof, the offence was firing on all cylinders, and the pitching was lights-out.  Overall this was a fine weekend of baseball by a great group of boys.

The team would like to thank their sponsors, families, and fans for their support all weekend in Kingston and throughout the season so far.
