The TP Baseball Committee and the entire TP Baseball Family would like to extend its heartfelt congratulations to our TP Peewee Select Lizzies team for winning the West Toronto Peewee Select Loop Championship today.
Our TP Cub Reporter twittered that the TP Peewee Selects won the championship in “convincing fashion” and took no prisoners on their way to victory. The Peewee Selects (drawn from players in the TP House League Baseball program) will now advance to the Ontario Provincial Finals in Lindsay which will be held during the Labour Day weekend.
The TP Peewee Select team had to play three games on Sunday to win the championship. In the 10 a.m. game, the Lizzies defeated Martingrove # 2 by ten runs to advance to a double knockout final versus undefeated Martingrove # 1. The TP Peewee Select Lizzies bats came alive as they defeated Martingrove # 1 in “convincing fashion” 16-6 in the 1 p.m. game. In the final showdown at 4 p.m., the TP Peewee Select Lizzies took no prisoners and throttled Martingrove # 1 11-1 to win the West Toronto Peewee Select Loop Championship.
The TP Peewee Select team had a very successful 2010 regular season and this championship is a much deserved icing on the cake for job well done. The team represented the Toronto Playgrounds core values both on and off the diamond in a professional manner during a great 2010 season.
Congratulations once again to TP Peewee Select Head Coach Casey Irwin, assistant coaches Jason Brown and John Viktorin, the players and their respective parents and families who supported them during their championship run.
