Erindale Lions Little League: T-Ball/Baseball All-Star News



Oakville SOBA Tournament - Select and All Star
Great way to finish an intense week of baseball for Erindale All Star program.
Erindale sent 2 teams to compete in the SOBA tournament in Oakville.  It was a deep field that included 3 SOBA champions so far this year (Brampton, Guelph and Waterdown)
The Erindale Select was in a very tough pool having to play Brampton and Waterdown. They played well but did not advance from the pool.
The Erindale All Star team was a machine.  They stared with a 11-1 win over Markham on Friday.  Saturday saw the strong play continue with a 10-0 win over Burlington and the team finished their pool play with a 18-2 win against Oakville.
On Sunday the team started with a 13-2 win over Richmond Hill in the semi final.  The finals saw the team up against a very strong (and big!) Guelph team.  Erindale's pitching continued to dominate ( the team only gave up 7 runs all weekend) and were able to bring home the championships with a 4-2 hard fought victory!

 The U9 Select Minor Team made the drive to Dundas Aug 10/11 weekend for the Dundas Little League Wes Snihur Tourney. Facing three games on Saturday, the team laid some great groundwork by beating Niagara before many were out of bed! Secondly they faced the Stoney Creek team which they have played many times and always proved to be a nail biter. With some outstanding pitching and good bats, they put another win on the board. The third game was a hard fought loss to the ever present High Park which placed us in 2nd and off to face our neighbours Oakville Sunday morning. Congratulations to the U9 team for their perseverance and sportsmanship in the face of taunts by dancing Whitecaps, we held our ground and our heads high despite a heartbreaking loss. A bronze place finish for a team praised by Dundas organizers as "the most polite and well behaved team in years"! Way to go...Adam, Aidan, Carter, Ethan, Garrett, Johnny, Kalayo, Kevin, KJ, and Lucas!

Congratulations go out to the Erindale Blue AA Bantam team for winning the Brampton Majors tournament this past weekend.  It was an uphill battle all weekend but the team displayed their heart and composure to bring a title to Erindale.  In round robin play, they beat West Hill 7-2, followed by heart racing games against the host team Brampton 8-7 and 6-5 against fellow rivals from Oakville.  Being the only team to go undefeated in preliminaries they secured their spot in the semi finals which was an instant classic.  Being down 5-0 in the first inning, the boys came charging back to win 8-5 against North Toronto to advance to the finals against the Sudbury Renegades.  After three scoreless innings, great pitching and defence from both teams, the boys in Blue broke it open only needing to score four runs to seal the victory 4-0 to capture the Championship!  Job well done Erindale Blue!

T-Ball All-Star and Select Program:



Friday evening the U6 team’s tournament started with a David and Goliath game against the Oakville U8s. Despite losing, Erindale scored a respectable 25 runs in their first game as a team.  Cameron won the player award for his solid hitting, not to mention his impressive cartwheels in left-center field.

Saturday morning the U6s played a more evenly matched opponent, the Stoney Creek U6s. Erindale won the game 44 to 41. Jacob won the player award for both solid hitting and fielding.

The Saturday afternoon game saw Erindale play the home team Oakville U6s. This was the game where the umpires decided to call the game a little differently – awarding players the next base even if they had barely stepped off the base they had just reached when time was called. Home field advantage proved fatal for our boys in red as Erindale fell 43 to 33. The player award went to Jordan.

Sunday, Father’s Day, and the first game was bright and early at 8:30 am. This was another older opponent, the Mississauga Majors U7 team. Still adjusting to the way bases were being awarded, and despite spectacular plays by, player award winning, Laurence at first base, the U6s fell 48 to 26.

The Sunday afternoon game was a scorcher, where Erindale again played Stoney Creek in the consolation game. Despite the hot sun, and the boys being tired from a weekend of T-Ball, Erindale won 40 to 34. Chad, showed Gold Glove skills at second and won the player award.

The Erindale U6s are:

Jack, who only played the first game, but showed serious potential. Tyler, who got some solid hits into the outfield. Jallone, despite a black eye, he got the job done.
Cameron, big hits. Ryan, stretched a dribbler in the infield into a triple with some aggressive base running. ordan, no one calls time like he does. icholas, tagged a couple of runners out that were trying to make it to second base. Anthony, solid hitting and fielding, what an arm! James, showed some hustle and learned how to flip off the catcher’s mask. Laurence, excellent plays at first. Jonathan, solid hitting, and a good glove. Jacob, hitting, fielding, he does it all.
