We played our first exhibition game last night against the minor midget club from Niagara Falls. In 2010, they won the OBA A Championship. We held our own last night, from what I heard as I was only there for 1.5 innings. We held the lead in the game and ended up losing 5-3 – not too shabby at all. Way to go boys.
I think that the club is going to do quite well this season. We have a solid core of players. I lost one last evening though. I received an email that they didn’t feel that they could commit to the schedule. That’s too bad but I understand where they are coming from. We are playing a VERY busy schedule for sure. That’s the way I like it.
Essentially, all of the games that we play in May, June, July and August are a work-up to the OBA Championships over Labour Day Weekend. Winning that tournament is my ultimate goal.
Wish us luck!!!
