“The Senior National tournament is special. It’s special for the athletes, their family’s and for the city of Ottawa,” said East Nepean Eagles President Bruce Campbell. “This tournament is the opportunity for 15 and 16-year-old players to get one step closer to living out the dream of representing Canada at the Senior World Series. Every at-bat, ground ball, pitch and fly ball are important steps towards winning” Campbell says. “We are honoured to host the players who train for this and for their families who commit to supporting them along the way.”
There will be 3 games a day (primarily around 10am, 1:30pm and 5pm) with some adjustments on a few days do to other events. The local host team East Nepean Eagles plays at 5 pm.
The format will be round robin style tournament play, semi final day will be Sunday July 23rd and the Championship day will be July 24th.
Hosting this event shines a spotlight on both the community and organization but also reflects the passion and commitment of the volunteers, a hallmark of East Nepean Little League’s success throughout the last 60 plus years in Ottawa.
