SUNDAY AUGUST 11th is our DAY OF CHAMPIONS! Over 1500 people including 600 players will be celebrating the end of a baseball season with a parade and trophy ceremony. This is for all House League Baseball players (Junior T-Ball - Bantam). Players will receive a trophy and their team pictures.
In addition to the ceremony we will also be showcasing some of Mississauga's best 16 year old players as they swing for the fences in a Home Run Derby. 4 of the players are MNBA alumni playing for The Ontario Blue Jays. They have just returned from McKinney, Texas where they won the Mickey Mantle 16U World Series (The first Canadians to win the title).
Included in these players is former Tiger Josh Naylor who was the finalist of North America's Under 16 Power Showcase Home Run Derby last December. See video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdzZWuBkYfY
We have dozens of giveaways that range from autographed baseballs to private baseball lessons.
With so many people, it is important to be there on time so that we can organize the parade.
