IT WAS ANOTHER GRAND OLD TIME FOR ONE AND ALL IN ATTENDANCE AT THE INTERCOUNTY BASEBALL LEAGUE (IBL) MAPLE LEAFS ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM TO KICKOFF THEIR 51st SEASON AT CHRISTIE PITS
Another fun and glorious time was had by one and all at the 2019 Toronto Maple Leafs Baseball Club Forum and Reception held this evening at the Marriott Hotel to inaugurate the team’s fifty-first season at Christie Pits.
The annual Forum offered a great opportunity for attendees, both 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 also had an opportunity obtain autographs from the all stars in attendance.
The baseball greats in attendance at this year’s soiree included Andre Dawson; Goose Gossage; Ferguson Jenkins; Tim Raines; Steve Rogers and Lee Smith.
It goes without saying that Jack Dominico, the owner of the Intercounty Baseball League (IBL) Toronto Maple Leafs Baseball Club, has been one of the most avid supporters of our Toronto Playgrounds House League Baseball program through the years. His beloved baseball team celebrates the start of their 51st IBL Season Opener against the Brantford Red Sox at Dominico Field Christie Pits on Sunday, May 5 at 2 p.m.
A sparkling total of four representatives from Toronto Playgrounds Baseball were in attendance for the Maple Leafs forum and reception, including three members of the TP Baseball Committee (Chief Baseball Coordinator Steve Smith; President Bill Evans; and Committee Member Paul Hum and Jeff Kolyn). In addition, TP House League Baseball Umpire Emeritus Mike Zimmerman graced the proceedings with his presence.
And when all was said and done, everyone from TP had a grand old time!
