Ontario Summer Games for Bantam Aged Players
The next Ontario Summer Games will be held in Mississauga Aug 11-14, 2016.
Once again Baseball Ontario will run a Bantam Affiliate All-Star tournament as part of this event. There are 12 spots for 14 teams that have registered for this event and a draw was held to determine who would play-off for a spot.
LDBA and WCBA were chosen to play off. A best 2 out of 3 playoffs must be concluded by June 20. LDBA will be the home team for the playoffs as determined previously by a draw.
The cost associated with the Summer Games is $125.00 per player based on a 16 player team. These fees cover tournament transportation (but not transportation to the tournament), accommodation and meals.
The team (16 players and 3 coaches) will all stay together throughout the tournament. They are put up in University dormitories and fed together as a team, etc. They are bused to and from the Games.
Phil Eyre and Phil Ross from Sarnia and Mike Bond from Chatham have volunteered to coach the team.
This is a once in a lifetime experience. The teams are treated very well and quality of baseball is exceptional.
The first tryout will be at the Port Lambton diamond on Sunday May 15 at 1:00 pm.
If you plan on trying out for the WCBA All Start team please email Phil Eyre at firstname.lastname@example.org
