The team has played 4 games between Thursday night and tonight.
On Thursday, we played the Niagara Falls Minor Bantam Falcons. Not a bad game, we lost by 2 runs or so but it wasn’t a bad game. We struggled a bit on the mound but that’s ok.
Last night we went to Ancaster for a re-match against the team that we tied 3-3 in the Dundas Tournament. It was one of the best performances of the year. We played a 9 inning game and scored 2 runs in each of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd while getting them 3 up and 3 down. We went on to win 11-5 on very strong pitching from both of our pitchers. The hitting, base running and defense was excellent.
We played a double-header tonight against Niagara Falls again. We had a number of players who were hurt or sore or whatever. I’ve never heard so much complaining in my life. Some of it might be legit, some of it, who knows… We ended up losing both games, the first one was close, the second one, not even sure.
I was ejected from the second game. I had seen enough of the worst umpire that the umpires association could have possibly provided me. He’s an idiot, doesn’t know the rules of baseball and (with me being polite) that’s all I am going to say.
So, I was ejected in the second inning (I think) – didn’t really care. Don’t really care. Now I will have to serve a one game suspension because of a … umpire. Oh well.
Anyway, we were supposed to play a number of games next week leading up to OBA’s next weekend. I have cancelled them because of the injuries, etc. I want to ensure that we are healthy for next weekend.
Good luck boys, I hope we do well. I think that this will be my last kick at the old Baseball Ontario Championship can for while. If it is, it’s been a good ride. 🙂
