After hosting an exciting and hard fought BC Junior Baseball Championship last weekend the WCA Jays host the Vernon Diamondbacks Wednesday night at 7:30pm in the final OMBL game of the season.
The WCA Jays then play host to the 2012 Okanagan Major Baseball League Playoffs which determine who attends the 2012 BC Senior Championships in Prince George over the August long weekend. The combatants are the Kamloops Sun Devils, Vernon Diamondbacks and WCA Kelowna Jays.
The Jays won the Bruce Mckenzie Trophy in 2009 and 2010 and Kamloops won it in 2011 in an exciting extra inning game. The 2012 version of the Kamloops Sun Devils are a very solid team and will be tough to beat.
The Jays are missing injured star center fielder Ray Guyton and starting catcher Stefan Mckee, both on the D/L, and this leaves some big shoes to fill by some of the young Jays.
