Victoria Eagles pick up top baseball trophies

The Victoria Eagles led the way in the 2015 B.C. Premier Baseball League All-Conference Awards.

The Victoria Eagles led the way in the 2015 B.C. Premier Baseball League All-Conference Awards.

Eagles star hitter Tyler Duncan of Sooke doubled as both the Top Offensive Player and MVP hitting .371 (sixth overall) with 31 runs batted in (seventh overall), 49 hits (fifth) and five home runs (second) while stealing 31 bases (tied for first) and scoring 40 runs (tied for first).

It’s the second time in three years an Eagle has won the MVP award as Brandon Feldman won it in 2013.

Eagles chairman Martin Winstanley said Duncan has dedicated many hours of his life into developing his natural talents.

“It is gratifying to all of us that Duncan’s contributions to his team and his ability to hit for average and for power have been recognized by the [PBL].”

Saanich’s Kobe Morris (infielder) earned a Gold Glove while fellow Saanichite Fynn Chester, a pitcher, won the PBL Rookie of the Year award.

The Eagles were also named the Organization of the Year, finishing second in the regular season standings (31-13) behind the eventual PBL champion North Shore Twins.

Winstanley said they received the organizational honour because of the hard work put in by parents and volunteers.

“The Eagles have accomplished great things this year both on and off the diamond and we are proud,” he said.

Duncan, Morris, and Chester were named first team all stars and Eagles pitcher Ethan Skuja (Saanich) was named to the second all star team.

Victoria Mariners infielder Jason Willow was named a first team all star and catcher Neck Seginowich a second team all star.




Nine Eagles are headed to university to play baseball this fall, Skuija to UBC, Brendan Turcotte to Central Arizona College, Adam Bontkes to Northeast Texas Community College, Karsten Waters to Otero Community College, Tyson Abbott to University of Lethbridge, Evan Smith to the University of the Fraser Valley, Mitch Bryan to Pasadena City College, Stephen Thornton to Dakota College and Tyrus Sleightholme to the University of the Fraser Valley.
