TORONTO PLAYGROUNDS PREVAIL OVER THE WOLVERINES IN A NAIL BITING THRILLER AT CONNORVALE PARK
Beneath a canopy of tranquil summer skies, the Toronto Playgrounds Minor Peewee Selects edged the Weston Wolverines 12-11 in a four inning nail biter this morning at Connorvale Parkto win their opening round robin playoff game at the 2019 Etobicoke Baseball Association (EBA) Peewee Select Championship Tournament.
The TP Minor Peewee Selects journey at the tourney began in a surreal Twilight Zone fashion on Friday night when play in their opening contest versus the Wolverines was suspended in the top half of the third inning due to a power outage at Connonvale Park that plunged the diamond into darkness. As a result, tournament organizers were forced to reschedule the resumption of game to 8 a.m. this morning, with Weston ahead 8-6 on the scoreboard when play was suspended.
After a restful night’s sleep of counting sheep, a refreshed TP squad hit the field and edged the Wolverines in a thriller.
The TP Minor Peewee Selects (1-0) continue their journey at the EBA playoffs later this morning at 11:15 a.m. when they battle the Royal York Girls (1-0).
