Rest in Peace Casey
A Celebration of Casey's life will take place from 4-6 pm on Sunday September 17th from at the Burlington Convention Centre located at 1120 Burloak Drive.
There is an article up in the paper about him which you can find here;
It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that Rob Hall of the Cubs passed away recently.
There will be a celebration of his life on Thursday August 31st from 7 to 11pm at the Royal Canadian Legion in Dundas located at 280 King Street West.
A "GoFundMe" campaign has been started by Paul Smith in order to try and cover the cost of having him buried in his native East Coast. Anyone wishing to contribute is more then welcome to click on the link listed below;
I received this testimonial about Rob from Michael Blackwood and felt it would be best if it was posted as he had written it;
Rob is the one in the back far right (in the team picture above). He wore 44 then.
When his father passed away a few years after this photo he asked to have his number changed to 24 which was his Dad's number. My wife Brenda changed his number to 24 and he wore that number until he retired from BVB.
He is missed dearly.
The 2017 Regular Season is now over and we are now heading straight into our
2017 Playoff Schedule (Posted Below).
Congratulations go out to the Hobos and Braves who will be facing each other in the Finals in a re-match from last seasons Finals.
The Cards and Mudhens both put up great games in the semi-finals with both of them, at times, looking as if they were going to meet each other in the Finals. But the Hobos and Braves were able to pull through.
Game #1 of the Finals started last night and it was a hard fought game.
The Hobos pulled out an 8-7 win to take a 1 - 0 Series Lead.
Game #2 goes on Friday night September 22nd at 7 at Nelson Park with Game #3 scheduled to be played Sunday September 24th at Millcroft Park D2 at 7 pm with Games 4 and 5 (if necessary) back at Nelson Park on September 26th and September 29th
We have entered 2 All-Star teams (35+ age bracket and 43+ age bracket) into the CNOBF Nationals being held in Hamilton this year.
Below is a breakdown of the schedules for each team which were recently released;
Tier1 stays at Bernie Arbour for Semi & finals
5:30pm - BVB 43+ vs. Techumseh
Good luck to both of our All-Star Teams and Let's bring home both Championships!!!
Congratulations are in order for both of our teams as the BVB 49ers in both the 35+ and 43+ were crowned Co-Champions as both made it to the Finals but both Finals games were washed out due to intense Rain.
Once again, we have shown that when we combine our forces, we are able to achieve great things!
Congratulations to all our players and especially our Managers: Russ Perreira and Mike Gionas for the 35+ and Dan Pokoradi & Craig Carroll for the 43+.
Congratulations!!! Great Job to All Involved!!!
We would like to announce the induction of Casey Cosgrove into the BVB Hall of Fame.
Casey has been a long time member of the league and taken on a variety of different roles throughout his time in the league.
There will be a formal write up posted sometime this week and a ceremony took place on Sunday before the Hobos took on the Red Sox in the 2nd game of their Playoff series at Nelson Park during which we officially inducted Casey into the Hall of Fame.
Congratulations to Casey.
