2014 Susan McEachern Memorial Volunteer of the Year Award

The 2014 winner of Susan McEachern Memorial Volunteer of the Year Award is Dan Hobson from Truro

The Voice of the Bearcats! Dan runs the scoreboard and keeps the main score book.  He also did some commentary this season for Bell Community One.  He has never missed one of the Bearcats games for the past several years.  He is always very prompt, being at the park well before the team arrives. In short, he has been an integral part of our club whether we are winning or losing. Whenever the Bearcats have fund raisers, he is always willing to offer a helping hand.

The final regular season game between Halifax Pelham Molson Canaians and the Dartmouth Moosehead DRY was a pitchers duel through six innings as both Cameron Marling and Mark Haverstock were stingy on the bump Friday evening. Each pitcher alowed only one hit through four innings before Halifax scored on an RBI single off the bat of Brandon Devlin.  The DRY answered in the sixth with an RBI single from Darren Doucette.  The DRY scored a pair of unearned runs in the eigth to take the lead.  Marling was flawless the rest of the way.  The DRY had previously clinched first place.  The loss for Halifax means they will fall to third place behind Truro.  Regular season will come to a close this weekend with Sydney traveling to Kentville to play four games.  If Sydney can sweep the weekend series, they will earn second place.
