TP SELECT: Toronto Playgrounds Defeats East York 16-7 In Convincing Fashion


80 PITCHES! Cooper (8) pitched three solid innings for the victory against East York.

In a convincing fashion, the Toronto Playgrounds Peewee Select Team defeated East York 16-7 in four innings of play this evening in the first of three scheduled games at the Oakville Tournament.

The Peewee Selects pitching crew and defense were able to neutralize the potent East York lineup for much of the game. The effort allowed TP to score fourteen runs in the first four innings to put the game away. 

Here is a detailed game synopsis from TP Cub Reporter Michael “Scoop” Godel:

  • Cooper (8) pitched three solid innings for the victory.
  • David (72) made a spectacular catch in left field with the bases loaded and two out in the third.
  • A double by Morgan (24) ignited a three run first inning.
  • Sam (13) kick started a four run third inning with a long double.
  • Michael (6), Cooper and Cameron (1) had solid singles in the fourth which respectively drove in one, two and one run(s)
  • Micah (10) closed out the game with a 1-2-3 final inning by inducing three pop fly outs on only four pitches.
  • TP Head Coach Casey Irwin’s uncanny attention to opposition baserunners allowed Cooper to pickoff two East York baserunners. The first successful pickoff was to Justin (20) at second and the other was to Michael at third.

The Peewee Selects play two more games at the Oakville Tournament on Saturday (July 16) afternoon. Toronto Playgrounds will play the Brampton Red Sox at 12:30 p.m. and Forest Glen at 5:30 p.m.
