Play ball!

Baseball season is upon us again and we hope to have another successful year.

Last season was fairly successful. On July 14 and 15 we hosted a grasshopper tournament. Parham took first place, Sharbot Lake took second place. Although it was very hot and we had a downpour that delayed the games, the kids all enjoyed themselves.

On July 21 and 22 we hosted a mite tournament: 8 teams participated under cloudy skies. Seeley’s Bay took first in the “A” Championship with Perth Road taking second in the “A”. East Storrington took first in the “B” Championship with Inverary taking second.

Our Squirt tournament was held in Amherstview on July 28 and 29, with our North Frontenac team taking the “B” Championship. The Bantam tournament was also that weekend. Although they came home without a trophy they had a great time.


We would like to thank our three umpires Josh St. Pierre, Courtney Meeks and Adam Smith for a job well done. Lisa Hamilton for her help, Julie Whan for scorekeeping, and James Webster for fundraising and the barbeque after the grasshopper tournament held at Branch 425. Thanks to all the coaches and parents for all their help with the kids. Hope to see you all at registration again this year: March 28, 7pm, Sharbot Lake Anglican Church Hall; March 31, 10am-noon, Parham Fire Hall.
