All-Stars to open nationals against Quebec

Canadian Little League Championship schedule released
The Moose Jaw Little League All-Stars can finally book their flights.

Even with their winning the Little League Prairie championship in such commanding fashion, the All-Stars were loathe to look ahead even the slightest bit, meaning they have a bit of preparation to do before they leave for Ancaster, Ont. for the Canadian Little League championship on July 30.

That includes figuring out how they’re going to prepare for the week-and-a-half long tournament that begins on Aug. 1, the one thing they had been thinking about before Wednesday’s championship victory.

“We decided as a staff a little while ago that we were just going to practice at home,” head coach Tony Dreger explained. “We have a couple of exhibition games that we’d like to line-up, but we have some banged-up guys and we need to heal-up a little bit.

“We’ve been going every day for a month and sometimes twice a day, so we’re going to take three days off, come back Sunday and get back on the field practicing, since we’re two weeks out from nationals here.”

The All-Stars already know their schedule (all times ET):

Aug. 1 – Quebec, 10 a.m.

Aug. 2 – Ancaster, 5 p.m.

Aug. 3 – Atlantic, 2 p.m.

Aug. 4 – Rest day

Aug. 5 – Alberta, 11 a.m.

Aug. 6 – British Columbia, 9 a.m.

Aug. 7 – Ontario, 12 p.m.

Aug. 8 – Rain date, tiebreakers

Aug. 9 – Semifinals, 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Aug. 10 – Championship final, 11 a.m.

All games will be streamed live on and will have daily coverage.
