Dartmouth Moosehead Dry and the Halifax Pelham Molson Canadians will sit idle today as gold medals are handed out at the Canadian senior baseball championship.
Both local entries were ousted from the event on the weekend at Beazley Field and Mainland Common.
Host Dartmouth -- a three-time national champ seeking its first title on home field -- went 2-2 but didn’t recover from losing its first two games and scored just 13 runs overall.
Halifax, the reigning Nova Scotia Senior Baseball League champ, went 2-2 and qualified for the playoffs but fell 8-3 to the Windsor (Ont.) Stars in Saturday’s quarter-finals.
The semifinals and finals, originally scheduled to be played yesterday, were postponed until today. The St. John’s (N.L.) Capitals will face the Fort Saskatchewan (Alta.) Athletics at 1 p.m. at Beazley, while Windsor plays the Quebec provincial team at the same time at Mainland. The medal games are at Beazley, with bronze at 4 p.m. and gold at 7 p.m.
