The Minesing Midget team travelled to Victoria Harbour June 7th and 8th for the GBMSL Mid-Season Tournament.
The team entered the tournament as the 2nd seed based and faced Lafontaine and Elmvale in the round robin portion of the tournament. Both games ended in victory putting the team in the AA final against Vasey.
The team was triumphant in the final beating a strong Vasey team to take the title! Congratulations! That’s the first check in the quest for a Triple Crown title!!
Congratulations to Jamie Giffen on being selected the tournament MVP in the final game!
The 2013 season marks a new beginning of sorts for Minesing Minor Ball as we rolled out our new brand. We are now the Minesing Otters!
We are very exciting to start this new chapter of Minesing Minor Ball. Keep your eyes open as we will also be starting to offer branded apparel for sale in the next little while!
With registration and picture night completed it’s time to let the real fun begin. This year we again have over 200 kids registered to play across 16 teams in 7 age divisions.
A special thanks to everyone that stepped up to volunteer to coach teams this year. The kids will be very appreciative of all of the time you will spend with them on the field.
Best of luck to all teams this season!!
The Squirt Mid-Season Tournament was held on the July 13/14th weekend under a scorching sun and the Minesing team were red hot to match the weather!
In Wyevale at the “AA” tournament, Squirt #2 and Squirt #3 were in a pool with Elmvale #1 and Victoria Harbour #1. Squirt #3 played a strong round robin winning all of their games to put them into the Championship Final. Squirt #2 played an amazing tournament and considering they had more AP players than their normal players were extremely competitive in all of their games! In the Final, Squirt #3 met a very strong Vasey team. In an epic pitching battle they put up a good fight but lost a very close game to win the Silver Medal.
In Perkinsfield at the “A” tournament, Squirt #1 was playing a double elimination format against Elmvale #3, Victoria Harbour #2, Lafontaine and Port McNicoll. Squirt #1 played a sensational tournament to reach the final against Victoria Harbour #2. The team prevailed to beat Victoria Harbour #2 to capture the Gold Medal!
Congratulations to all teams for a great effort especially given the extremely hot weather!
