(June 22)   Vancouver Villa have won the right to represent the province in senior men's baseball at the Canada Summer Games in Halifax in August. Villa clinched the berth Sunday with a 5-1 decision over the Okanagan All-Stars. Villa crushed Victoria 7-0 Friday in the double-knockout tournament and beat the Kootenay All-Stars 12-5 on Saturday.

Centre fielder Stu Winrob sparked Villa's Sunday triumph cracking a homer, double and single. Marty Lewis scattered eight hits and fanned seven in handling the pitching duties for the winners. Villa pounded out 15 hits. Bob Schwab of Kelowna, a pitcher and catcher for the Okanagan crew, took the loss before Ed Folk of Penticton relieved in the seventh.  On Saturday, Okanagan eliminated Victoria 6-4 with Don Archer and Russ Keckalo of Vernon and Jerry Robertson of Kelowna each rapping three hits.  Victoria's biggest blow was a triple by Pete Duncan off winning pitcher Reg Main of Vernon.  Okanagan downed Kootenay 10-8 on Sunday with catcher Randy Rota of Kamloops going three for six with a pair of doubles and Robertson hitting three for four with a two-bagger.
