On a simply gorgeous Sunday at the good old ballpark, it was another supercalifragilisticexpialidocious day of ‘September Madness’ as we begin to wind up another season.

With another sixteen games completed yesterday, the 2016 edition of the annual Toronto Playgrounds House League Baseball Tournament continues today with a pair of semi-final elimination games in our respective Mosquito and Peewee divisions. 

A grand total of 66 games are scheduled to be played within the eleven day span of the tournament (weather permitting, of course).

The sheer amount of baseball games slated to be played is a baseball lover’s delight. During the weekend portion of the tournament, it was a virtual cornucopia of baseball from dawn to dusk. It’s no wonder that we fondly refer to our tournament as ‘September Madness’.

Here are the games that are on tap for today:

It is very important that we start all games at the start time listed on the scheduleplease try to be at the diamond at least 30 minutes before the start time to give the coaches a chance to get the line ups organized.
