Congratulations to Coach Crawford’s 2003 U16 Minor Midget Team who won the ‘A’ Provincials in Kitchener this weekend.

A great season that all came together with an OBA championship !!!!!
A superb weekend of baseball. Each and every player gave their all and supported each other.
The boys went 5-1 on the weekend.

Game 1 vs Kitchener ( host )
11-1 win in 6 innings. Solid pitching and explosive offense.

Game 2 vs North Toronto
4-3 win in extra innings. Again solid pitching, stellar defense. Game winning run was a homerun by Sam Dunn in the top of the 9th.

Received a bye into round 4.

Game 3 vs Richmond Hill
10-1 win. This was a very tight game until our bats exploded in the 6th to open the score up.

Game 4 vs Orillia
7-5 loss. We were down 5-0 after 3 but continued to battle, but in the end came up just short.

Game 5 vs Stratford
12-10 win. This was a back and forth battle against a very good hitting team. Again our bats stayed strong and gutted out a victory.

Game 6 rematch vs Orillia
8-6 win to seal the championship. A 3 pitcher effort to close the game out. Great defense all game.

Tournament MVP went to #50 ( Mr. Reliable ) Curtis King. Curtis was lights out on the mound all weekend.

A complete team effort !!

As we preached all year, DEFENSE wins baseball games, our bats will not let us down.

To quote coach Craig " OUTSTANDING "

It’s been a great ride.

Will Basilio and Connor Hamilton representatived HHMBA at the OBA’s Pee Wee All Star game, playing for the Central Ontario squad September 13-15 in Vaughan. Basilio started at 2nd and Hamilton started at first and helped the COBA Squad come away with a Silver Medal.

The COBA squad fell to the ICBA team, which had many of the 13U Cambridge National Champions as members of the team, with a walk off in the bottom of the 7th. It was an incredible 3-2 game, where the players battled not only the opposing team, but also the weather, as they played the first 3 innings in the rain.

Thank you Will and Connor for representing the HHMBA so positively on and off the diamond.
