For the second time in three years, the Fujis knocked off The Eh Team from Vancouver in the A-division championship at the Perfect Storm slo-pitch tournament.
The third annual event was shifted to Sechelt this year for the first time, and the new venue made the tournament event better with a great concession, beer garden and festival atmosphere.
