Mosquito AA Provincials

The Mosquito Warriors travelled to Cole Harbour on the weekend to compete for the Mosquito AA Provincial title in an 8 team tournament. Their first game Friday was scoreless into the 5th inning before they ended up losing 7-3. The next day they got back to form beating Tri-County 7-3 and Dartmouth 6-5 clinching a spot in Sunday’s crossovers as the 2nd seed in Pool A.

A very exciting game against Springhill ended in a loss with a walk-off single in the bottom of the 6th for a 5-4 final. Springhill went on to defeat New Glasgow 2-1 in the final for the Championship.

Congratulations on a great season.

2nd Annual 100 Inning Game Sep. 9th

With our minor baseball and softball seasons starting to wind down it’s time to get ready for our 2nd annual 100 Inning Ball Game in Port Hood. This is the primary fundraiser for Dave Muise Ball Field, and it only works with the help of all our players!

The game will be played on Saturday, September 9th starting at 9am. Different age groups will be made into 2 teams to compete all day long. The score is carried over from one age group to the next for 100 innings.

To earn prizes players will need to get their friends and family to sponsor them at 10¢ an inning (download and print your pledge sheet). For every $100 in pledges raised by a player their name is entered into a draw with a grand prize of a new Apple iPod Touch 32GB.

Last year we raised over $5,000 and Brandon MacKenzie won the iPod! The funds paid for extensive new infield drainage & soil upgrades, as well as new bases.

This is a family fun day with food and drinks available. Children and parents of all ages are welcome to participate in the game. The schedule will be determined based on age of players. Prior to game day we’ll send an email with playing times by age group.

To participate please send an email to baseball@porthood.ca with the name and age of your players.

Be sure to pass this on to anyone you think might be interested in participating.
