The High Park Braves 12U season came to an end on August 9th after a 4-1 loss to South Vancouver in the finals of the National Championship.  This was the team's first loss of the season, finishing 29-1.   This was the furthest that a High Park team has progressed since 2000 when they last won a National title.  While the boys fell short of their ultimate goal, this season was a success.  Many thanks to coaches Lou, Tommy, Paul, and Anthony.

Other HP Braves Rep Teams Highlights

HP Braves 11 year-old Team

Four new players joined this year’s High Park 11s team, coming off a provincial championship last year. The new squad jelled quickly, winning their first tournament of the year, the 11s division of the John Stokoe Major Tournament in Ancaster.

In the past two tournaments, the team has taken on stiff competition a year up. We made it to the semifinals of Brockville, losing to the Oakville 12s. At the Nokona PeeWee World Series in Cambridge, the team battled hard against elite teams of AAA calibre. It was an experience with many valuable lessons and highlights that we will remember a long time. 

HP Braves 10 year-old Team

The 10-year-old Braves have played in 4 tournaments this year.  After losing in the semi-finals in Ancaster and in the Districts in Oakville, the Braves came back in the Wes Snyder Memorial Tournament in Dundas.  There, the Braves went undefeated in the round-robin, before beating Ancaster 4-0 in an extra-inning game to win the championship.  

HP Braves 9 year-old Team

The High Park Braves 9 year old team has competed in 3 tournaments so far this year. The Ancaster Diamondbacks hosted the Father's Day Classic where the Braves went 5-0 to claim the John Stokoe Division Title. 

During the second tournament of the season the 9 year old team traveled to Amherst New York and competed in the Mel Ott Extravaganza.  Once again, the team was victorious going 5-0 to claim the 9U Championship defeating a very talented Central Amherst in the finals. Excellent defense and great pitching were instrumental in our success in Amherst.

The team met some excellent competition during its third tournament of the summer. The team's streak of consecutive wins dating back to the start of last season ended at the Orchard Park NY Little League tournament.  Competing in the 9U division, the team went 1-1-1 losing in the semi-finals to the Olean Oilers.

Baseball -> The Game


 You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.  Each player that’s on the side that’s in, goes out, and when he’s out, he comes in and the next player goes in until he’s out.  When three players are out, the side that’s out comes in and the side that’s been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.  Sometimes you get players still in and not out.  When both sides have been in and out six times, including the not outs, that’s the end of a Little League game!
