News and Announcements
We just wanted to thank everyone that participated in the Erindale tournament the last 2 weekends. Richard, Natalie and I really enjoyed the experience. All of the coaches had nothing but great things to say about all of the kids effort in pulling together over such a short period to put up a very strong effort. A few more plays today and we could have won the last game. We put many of the kids in new situations with new challenges and they did really well.
There were a lot of challenges pulling a team together so late and we plan to be much more organized should we be afforded the chance to run the U8’s next year. We certainly struggled a bit with experience compared to a couple of our opponents.
I also want to thank the organizers at Erindale for putting on a good tournament. Without all the organizers giving up so much time to pull these things together they cannot happen.
Erindale went 3-0 in the round robin including a very exciting game and one of the best defensive rookie ball games, defeating the Bloordale Boomers 3-1 to advance to the semi final where the Lions pounced on the Annette A’s 14-3. In the championship game, Erindale took an early 4-0 lead over a very strong team from Toronto Playgrounds after 2 innings only to fall behind 12-4 after 3 innings. The lions slowly chipped away and heading in the bottom of the 7th were only down 4. Erindale put together an unbelievable rally and scored 5 in the bottom of the 7th to win the championship 18-17.
Congrats to all the players and coaches for a great, fun weekend and making Erindale proud.
Erindale Mosquito Baseball Select won a silver medal in Wexford on June 11. The team comprised of mostly 2008 birth year kids played against teams that were 2007 birth year.
The kids played well all weekend and it was a good start to the season.
