Minor Bantam AA
Dan Berlin’s minor bantam AA team (top) has won the 2014 Toronto Baseball Association Championship. The epic events took place in August with Leaside facing Bloordale in a playoff game as they sat tied at the end of the regular season. Leaside lost that one 9 to 4 but the team persevered in the playoffs to beat North Toronto and then further dispatch the boys from Royal York twice to snare the championship record.
Red Select Rookieball
Below is Graydon Lau’s plucky Red Select Rookieball team. Graydon reports his great squad was a contender to the end losing only to Bloordale, which then beat North Toronto. As Graydon says: “We lost to the provincial champions in essence. We had already beaten North Toronto four times this season, most recently in the opening round of the provincials 11 to 6. It was a great season and many thanks for supporting the team in the South Bayview Bulldog.” Definitely our pleasure Graydon and well done guys. Leaside is proud of you. And by the way, tryouts for next year’s team start this week.
