Game Report composed with files from Rob Ball and David Hammond
On a warm and humid evening within the confines of Pelmo Park tonight, the Toronto Playgrounds Peewee Select team defeated Weston 10-3 in five innings to win its tenth game of the EBA Select season.
As they have been doing all season long, the Peewee Selects continue to play as a cohesive unit. Once again, TP used an elixir of stellar pitching, solid defense, and opportune offense to emerge victorious.
Here are the highlights:
- Luke (1) pitched a solid two innings where he allowed only one run while striking out four.
- John (33) threw two strong innings where he allowed only two runs while striking out three.
- TP closer “Mariano” Marcus (42) sealed the deal with three INTIMIDATING strikeouts.
- Sam (34) hit a MONSTER bases loaded triple (which fell two feet shy of being a home run).
- Harry (9) played a great game in centre field.
In a postgame media interview, TP Peewee Select Head Coach Rob Ball emphasized deep satisfaction over his team’s continuing excellence, development, and maturity on the diamond.
“Once again, everybody hit and played with great confidence in the field. These guys are not afraid to make plays now. They don’t worry about mistakes. They have confidence in themselves and each other. It’s great to see.”
The Peewee Selects (10-1) play their next game on Wednesday, July 25 when they visit Queensway Park to play Royal York 1 at 6 p.m.
