Canary Island is the 2011 Spanish Juvenile Baseball Champion
Spanish Juvenile Baseball Championship for Regional Selections
Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife was the host to the 2011 Spanish Juvenile Baseball Championship and four selections got together to find out who reigns the category this year. Canary Islands and Catalunya made it into the finals while Navarra and Madrid were left to play for third place. That match was won by Navarra with a 5-4 score after trailing Madrid 0-4 at the end of inning number three. Canary Island had already a 1-0 advantage in games from the preliminary stage and the first of the two scheduled final matches would be enough for the hosts to maintain their crown the hold for the third year in a row now.
This was the first time the Spanish Federation held a national championship for young categories on the Canary Islands and the success both in terms of organization and quality play for sure will bring more events to Tenerife.
