Ontario is golden at Canada Summer Games

Team Ontario wins the gold against a tough Team Alberta in the final game of the 2022 Canada Summer Games baseball competition. Ontario's seventh Canada Games gold medal in history and first since 2005. They finish the competition with six wins and three losses in a wild roller coaster journey to victory. Finishing the group stage 3-3, Team O would not look back and win three in row, including a quarter final game against Team Québec, a Semi-Final game against Team Saskatchewan, and the gold medal game against a hot Team Alberta.

 

Preston Barr was one of many Ontario players who could be considered the MVP. During the Canada Games competition, Barr finished with a .696 batting average and a 1.504 OPS producing 15 RBIs, the most ever in Canada Summer Games history, breaking the record previously set by Eric Hartman (St. Albert, AB) who finished the competition with 13.
