WITH A 2-1 RECORD, TORONTO PLAYGROUNDS IS ONE OF FOUR TEAMS LEFT IN THE TOURNAMENT PLAYOFF
After Saturday’s games, the Toronto Playgrounds Peewee Select Team is one of four teams still remaining in the West Toronto Select Loop Tournament.
Toronto Playgrounds (2-1) is now in the double knockout phase of the tourney where one more loss will eliminate them from the playoffs. Tournament playoff rules stipulate that a team is dropped from the tournament with two losses.
In their second game of the tournament, the Peewee Selects were edged by Royal York 5-4 in five innings. It was a tough loss because TP was leading Royal York 3-0 after 2 ½ innings.
In the third game, Toronto Playgrounds crushed Rexdale 17-4. The Peewee Select offense exploded and scored fifteen runs in the second inning. MacLeod (5) started the scoring parade in that inning with a long, inside the park home run. Both Mikel (2) and Naiemul (7) pitched masterfully in neutralizing a potent Rexdale batting order.
Toronto Playgrounds journey in the tourney continues at 11:15 a.m. on Sunday morning. Depending on the results, the Peewee Selects could play up to three games tomorrow.
