DAY 5 > A Wet September Madness Day


Depending on Mother Nature, the 2012 Toronto Playgrounds House League Baseball Tournament (a.k.a. ‘September Madness’) continues today with sixteen round robin games.

With some decent weather yesterday, we were able to play all five of our scheduled games on Day 4 of the tournament.

As we move into the weekend portion of our TP House League Baseball tournament, the weather forecast is not great. However, as previously indicated, we will be doing whatever we reasonably can to complete the remaining thirty-three games of our tournament on time.

This means that in situations of light rain, we will play the games….it may get wet and a bit muddy (especially around home plate at Diamond 1), but unless the fields become unplayable, we will keep the games going.

If any of you have extra tarps at home that you could bring to help cover the dugouts that would be greatly appreciated. We have some… but the more, the better, and that would be great.

Players, Parents and Coaches are strongly encouraged to check the TP Hotline (416-392-1914, press 4) or our Twitter feed (@TPbaseballnews) that is located in the sidebar on the main page of the website  to check out the status of your games…however, we will not be posting information until one hour before your scheduled game times, as things can and do change quickly sometimes with the weather.

This is also a reminder that in addition to the tournament games, there will be a BBQ, as all players and coaches will receive a free lunch consisting of a hot dog (veggie or meat), a juice box, and a bag of chips. Hot dogs and drinks will also be on sale for members of the public.

The schedule below sets out the times for teams to receive their food:

  •  11:00 a.m. > Dodgers, Mosquito Lizzies, Pirates, Giants
  •  11:30 a.m. > Orioles, Royals
  • 12:30 p.m. > Jays, Peewee Lizzies, Crawfords, Monarchs
  •  12:45 p.m. > Cubs, Cardinals
  •  1:00 p.m. > White Sox, Expos
  •  2:00 p.m. > A’s, Bantam Lizzies, Homesteads, Midget Lizzies

The annual tournament to wrap up the season is baseball lover’s delight with a cornucopia of games from four age divisions being played over four diamonds at Christie Pits and Bickford Park.

You can keep track of all the scores, standings and game accounts every evening of the tournament via the website and Twitter.

Final scores will be uploaded to twitter feed (@TPbaseballnews) as they come in.

Updated standings, scores and other news will be posted on the website nightly.

And on the busy weekend of the tourney when 28 games will be played, parents and players can keep tabs on the tournament by visiting the TP Tournament Scoreboard located behind Diamonds 2 and 3 for the latest updated scores and standings.
