Langley’s Jacob Baker slides home safely against Coquitlam at City Park on Saturday during the Sheila Engh Memorial Pink Bat Mother’s Day Tournament hosted by the Langley Baseball Association.

Tournament honours long-time Langley volunteer

The baseball diamonds at City Park were busy in honour of Sheila Engh

A long-time Langley Little League supporter was honoured over the weekend.

The Langley Baseball Association hosted the Sheila Engh Memorial Pink Bat Mother’s Day Tournament at City Park.

Engh succumbed to breast cancer in November.

As part of the opening ceremonies, her grandsons were presented with pink Langley jerseys with their names and numbers.

The tournament had two divisions: 9/10 majors and 13/14 juniors.

The first group featured two squads apiece from Langley, White Rock and Hastings, while the juniors had a Langley team, two from North Langley — the Mets and Red Sox — and one from Coquitlam.

Unfortunately, Sunday was rained-out even after the club’s valiant attempt to dry out the diamonds.

“We’d no sooner get the field dried and it would start pouring again” said Dan McLaren, president of the Langley Baseball Association.
