Take Me Out to the Ball Game... Take Me Out to the Park!
The Town of Lake Cowichan is getting ready to throw the first pitch at the new Centennial Ball Park Fields at their upcoming 75th Anniversary Celebration weekend, August 16th - 18th.  "This will be the first Mixed League Slo Pitch Tournament since the opening of the new ball fields " according to Ross Forrest, the event coordinator.
"We're excited to be able to bring back the ball tournaments to Lake Cowichan with this new two field ballpark. We are inviting mixed league slow pitch teams from all over to sign up for the tournament, however, teams are limited to 10, and sign up is moving quickly with teams already hearing on the ball fields about our event." he adds.
