PBA On a Roll as CCBC Season Comes to a Close!

The Prairie Baseball Academy has once again perched themselves atop the CCBC regular season standings. At the time of writing this article, the PBA Varsity team sat with a record of 18-3, with one extra win that has not been updated online. This being the case we can put the team at 19-3 thus far. This afternoon the boys will be in Calgary for a doubleheader, and the CCBC regular season will wrap up this weekend when PBA takes on the Fraser Valley Cascades at Lloyd Nolan Yard starting Saturday. The CCBC Championship will take place May 10-14th in Kelowna, BC.

 

PBA has enjoyed plenty of successful seasons in Coach Hubka’s six years as the head coach, but 2017 might be the best one yet. Through 22 games, PBA is hitting an unbelievable .363 as a team. That is .82 points higher than the University of Calgary who has the second best team average in the CCBC up to this point. On the other side of the ball, PBA also boasts the top team ERA at 4.03, .70 points lower than the next closest team. Lastly, the PBA Varsity team has the top fielding percentage in the league at a very respectable .973. This year’s team has only committed 19 errors so far this CCBC season. When you can put all aspects of the game together like they have it makes winning a lot easier. This team has really gelled on and off the field, and they are hungry to capture the CCBC Championship for the seventh consecutive year.

 

The Prairie Baseball Academy has seen some incredible individual performances so far this season. In a week’s time, they will likely pick up a lot of regular season hardware at the annual CCBC Awards Banquet. First year outfielder Dalton Wells leads the team with a .432 average in 21 games. Wells has scored 28 runs, with 7 2B, 2 3B, 2 HR and 25 RBI’s. Brett Brittany is once again terrorizing the league with his combination of speed and power. Through 21 games Brittany is hitting .410, 33 R, 3 2B, 5 3B, 8 HR and 21 RBI. There are too many incredible stat lines to post in this article.

On the pitching side, the PBA Varsity boys have been just as good as the hitters. PBA’s four starters are a combined 18-2 in CCBC play this season. The staff as a whole has a 218/84, K/BB ratio which is amazing at this level. Again, instead of listing off all of the numbers in this article, please click here to see the full PBA pitching stats so far this season.

 

The 2017 CCBC Tournament kicks off a week from today in Kelowna, BC. In last year’s tournament, PBA cruised through the round robin, but found their backs against the wall in the final against Okanagan University. PBA was down to their final out before pulling out a dramatic walk-off victory to capture their sixth straight CCBC Championship. In 2017, the goal remains the same. Coach Hubka’s squad will look to keep the trophy in safe hands for another year.
