Ohlsen to Ohio?

Chilliwack Minor Baseball star Dylan Ohlsen may get a trip to Ohio this summer with a U12 BC rep team.

Chilliwack Minor Baseball’s Dylan Ohlsen is an alternate for the 2013 CABA 12U World Series Team.

This team will play in the CABA (Continental Amateur Baseball Association) 12U World Series, taking place July 3-8 in Mason, Ohio. While there, they’ll take in at least one Cincinnati Reds game at the Great American Ball Park.

More than 140 players were vying for 14 roster spots and six alternate spots. Tryouts were held in early May in Victoria, Nanaimo, Richmond, Aldergrove and Kamloops.

The Ohlsen family is awaiting confirmation on whether he makes the trip regardless, or has to have one of the 14 roster players drop out.

Twenty teams will play in the tournament, with Team BC the lone Canadian representative.

They will play a minimum six games.
