UNDER GLORIOUS BLUE SUMMER SKIES FOR MILES AROUND, THE TWELVE TEAMS IN OUR TEE BALL DIVISION ENDED THEIR 2014 SEASON WITH A CELEBRATION DAY TO REMEMBER
Beneath picture perfect blue summer skies today at Christie Pits, the twelve teams in our Toronto Playgrounds House League Baseball Tee Ball Division ended their 2014 season with a Celebration Day to remember.
130 players from the Chickadees, Condors, Cranes, Eagles, Falcons, Hawks, Herons, Loons, Owls, Pelicans, Puffins and Ravens were in attendance at Saturday’s Tee Ball Celebration Day festivities.
There was a magical crackle in the air as the first of six games commenced at 9:30 a.m. this morning at Christie Pits Diamonds 2 and 3. The baselines on each diamond were lined with chalk. There were the announcements of each player’s name over the public address sound system before each player’s at bat during the game. The superb hitting and defensive prowess of the players on the diamond. The excited chatter and buzz of the parents, family and friends sitting in the bleacher seats and on the grass. The unmistakable smell of meat and veggie hot dogs grilling on the barbecue. A special trophy and photo presentation to each player after each game concluded.
Simply put…a marvellous time was had by one and all at the ballpark.
The TP Baseball Committee would like to thank all the parents who stepped up to the plate during 2014 season to help coach their respective Tee Ball house league teams. One of the backbones of the TP Baseball organization is its volunteers who go the extra mile to make each season so special for the players that have the love and passion to play ball at Christie Pits and Bickford Park.
The Committee would also like to extend a special thanks to Joel Scott, Quinn Boswell, Sadie Whitfield-Smith for volunteering their time in umpiring the numerous Tee Ball Division games this past season.
And a special thanks also to Steve Smith, Bill Evans, Carolyn Murphy, Julie Whitfield-Smith, Paul Hum, Joel Scott, Quinn Boswell, Sadie Whitfield-Smith and all our of volunteers for making today’s Tee Ball Celebration Day event and barbecue the success that it was.
We look forward to seeing you back on the field of dreams in 2015.
