THE CURTAIN COMES DOWN ON A FUN SEASON FOR THE TORONTO PLAYGROUNDS MAJOR MOSQUITO SELECT TEAM
Beneath a canopy of warm and overcast summer skies, the Toronto Playgrounds Major Mosquito Selects went down swinging this morning at the 2017 edition of the Etobicoke Baseball Association (EBA) Mosquito Select Tournament.
TP began the playoff tournament on Friday evening with a rough 12-9 loss to the York Gold Riverdogs at Ravina Gardens. As a result, TP was thrust into a must win scenario to continue their journey at the tourney. [Teams participating in this year’s EBA playoffs are operating under the double knockout formula, whereby a team with two losses would be eliminated from further contention in the tournament.]
Early this morning at Ravina Gardens, the TP Minor Mosquito Selects edged the TP Major Mosquito Selects 5-4 to knock them out of the tournament.
Despite falling short at the end of season tournament, the TP Major Mosquito Selects had a fun and productive regular season on the EBA Select circuit with a 5-7 record.
The TP House League Baseball Committee wishes to thank TP Major Mosquito Select Coaches Chris Beaulieu, Andrew Galloway, Brendan Kelly, Jundino Ugo and Casey Irwin for their fortitude and patience in steering these talented Mosquito Selects through the highs and lows of a fun and productive 2017 season.
The Committee also wishes to commend all the Major Mosquito Select players, coaches, parents, and family members for representing the core values of the Toronto Playgrounds House League Baseball program with honour, dignity and professionalism both on and off the diamond during the course of the 2017 season.
WAY TO GO, TP!
