Cornwall Ontario — The Women’s National Baseball team hit the mound in Cornwall Ontario at Legion Park on Tuesday much to the excitement of the hundreds of people in attendance.
Team Canada hit a proverbial home run coming back from a 11-7 deficit against the Cornwall River Rats Men’s Senior Team. Late in the seventh inning, thanks to a pair of walks while bases were loaded, the Women’s National Baseball team rallied and eventually won the game 12-11.
Women’s baseball has been added to the Pan Am games, and in preparation the Women’s National Baseball Team is playing a series of nine exhibition games. This game was extra special for one member of Team Canada. Outfielder Jenna Flannigan got to play in her hometown of Cornwall as a member of Team Canada.
“We have a great team of committed athletes, and I am thrilled that I can showcase our game in my hometown,” said Jenna Flannigan in a quote to Choose Cornwall.
Recently Flannigan carried the Pan Am torch at the Ottawa Championship Professional Baseball Game.
