A ENTERTAINING TIME WAS HAD BY ALL IN ATTENDANCE AT THE INTERCOUNTY BASEBALL LEAGUE MAPLE LEAFS ANNUAL EVENT TO KICKOFF THEIR 46th SEASON AT CHRISTIE PITS
A wonderful time was had by all at the 2014 Toronto Maple Leafs Baseball Forum and Reception held this evening at the Westin Bristol Place Hotel to inaugurate the team’s forty-sixth season at Christie Pits.
The annual forum was held the night before the Leafs play their 2014 Season Opener on Sunday (May 4) against the Burlington Bandits at Dominico Field at Christie Pits.
The Forum offered a great opportunity for attendees who were young and old to ask questions to a wide array of former all-star players and hear about their unique experiences in the major leagues. Afterwards, attendees had an opportunity obtain autographs from the all stars in attendance.
The baseball greats included Ferguson Jenkins, Jim Bunning, Tony Oliva, Gaylord Perry and Luis Tiant.
Special guest in attendance was Toronto Mayoralty candidate John Tory.
It goes without saying that Jack Dominico, the owner of the Intercounty Toronto Maple Leafs Baseball Club, has been one of the most avid supporters of the Toronto Playgrounds House League Baseball program through the years.
Nine guests from Toronto Playgrounds Baseball were in attendance for the Maple Leafs forum and reception, including three members of the TP Baseball Committee (Paul Bagnell, Paul Hum and Paul Kelly). The Killer P’s and everyone from TP had a grand old time.
