This weekend was the end of the baseball season for the Oakville A's. After achieving a silver medal (second) place in the Central Ontario Baseball Association Bantam 'AA' Championship, they were moved on to the Ontario Baseball Association Championship Series. For our non-North American members (and the Yanks too), this would be the equivalent of "State" finals. At this level there is no National Championship. We had a so-so season, playing primarily against 'AAA' teams, yet maintaining a bit of a .500 average for games won. So going into the provincial championship, a 'double knockout' (loose two games and go home) tournament, we thought baseball might be over Saturday morning (the championship started Friday night). Oops. The boys started to win in the one season that counts...playoffs. They lost their first game and then came on strong. I'm still processing things, what with work getting in the way, but a few shots to whet your appetite... On Saturday, Evan was doing a good job of connecting, while Alex worked on his timing: Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) And he was up to receive his medal at the end of the tournament: Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) On Sunday, Graeme was told to make a sacrifice fly and came through: Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) A few more to come, hope you enjoy.
