IT WAS A CAT STRATCH FEVER OPENING DAY FOR THESE “WEDNESDAY” ROOKIE BALL DIVISION RIVALS
Underneath a veneer of warm Spring skies at Christie Pits Diamond 3 this evening, the Leopards and Tigers faced off in a cat stratch fever Rookie Ball Division Season Opening battle royale of feline proportions.
The offensive fireworks from both teams continued with unabated ferocity for three innings as the capacity crowd in attendance roared its enthusiastic approval.
Kudos to Nicolas (8) of the Tigers for powering two doubles in two appearances at the plate; Dylan (14) of the Leopards for stroking a triple in the first inning; Anthony (16) of the Leopards for slashing a double in the second inning; and James (13) of the Leopards for muscling a lead off triple in the third inning.
And when the dust had finally settled on the basepaths and catnip was dispensed to restore a modicum of order, TP Umpire Joel Scott declared that the Leopards and Tigers had played to a draw.
A fitting result in a game where a wonderful time was had by all.
