Ajax Ontario — This is the first time Women’s National Baseball is taking place at the PanAm games. Team Canada did not disappoint winning their preliminary round game against Cuba 13-1.
Canada exploded with eight runs in the sixth inning.
Cornwall’s own Jenna Flannigan, who plays right-field, contributed to Canada’s offence at bat. She had two runs, one hit, and three RBIs.
Shortstop Brandi Wall (#18 pictured above) also had an impressive game with two runs, two hits, and four RBIs.
Last week the Women’s National Baseball team visited Cornwall and defeated the Cornwall River Rats Men’s Senior Team in an exciting exhibition game.
Flannigan, an athletic ambassador for Cornwall and women’s baseball, had carried the Pan Am torch at an Ottawa Championship Professional Baseball Game earlier this year.
Earlier today the United States defeated Venezuela 10-6.
Jenna Flannigan and Team Canada will be back on the diamond Tuesday against Venezuela in another preliminary round match.
Go Canada Go!
