Provincial Championships

Our Squirt Select team had a very successful Saturday in Unionville going 3-0 in round robin play.  The team scored a total of 36 runs in those games while giving up 9 in a combined effort of batting and defence.
Quarter finals on Sunday had them face a seasoned Whitby Blue team where they fell behind 5-0 early on, only to come back and tie the game in the 6th inning.  In the end the team fell 8-5 with solid efforts at bat and running the bases placing 6th out of 18 teams.  For a young squad, it was great to watch their development over the season and to show off some Northern game play. Team members include:  Addison Busch, Madison Gouthro, Lauren Lacelle, Mya Lamorea, Hayley Manitowabi, Faith Michauville, Maggie Parker, Belinda Periard-Hamilton, Katie Sawyer, Caitlyn Sloan, Sara Truchon, Marina Valenti.  Coaches: Richard Michauville, Kirk Brown, Valerie Valenti, Chris Gouthro

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Midget Select team competed at the Provincial Championships in Whitby the past weekend. They had a hard fought weekend going 1-1-1 in round robin play to advance to the quarter finals against Erindale on Sunday and lost 7-4.  A great effort out of our 4 pitchers who were fantastic.  The team just couldnt score to support them. 
The girls represented our association very well again by being competitive in every game.  Thank you to our sponsor VGL and the association for the support throughout the season.  

Team (l-r): Hannah Michauville, Christina Goode, Kyrsten Palfrey, Kyrsten Beaudoin, Taylor Hughes, Isabella Fischer, Daniella Northrup, Hailee North, Grace Michauville, Katie Steeves, Jade Thompson.  Coaches Richard Michauville and Rod Goode.

Fun Tournament results

Congratulations to our Fun Tournament winners and to all participants over the beautiful sunny weekend!

Mini-mites & Mites King Sportswear teams enjoyed a game and trying the bouncy castle while catching some of the Squirt division games.

The Squirt Division saw CDDA capture the title over Pascoe Rentals.

Novice/Bantam Division was won by the Sudbury Selects over Canadian Tire.

Midget/Open Division was won by Near North Waste Systems over P&G Auto.  Thanks to players in this division for sharing when teams needed positions filled.

The annual skills competition included fastest base running, accuracy throwing and longest hit. Winners from the squirt, novice/bantam and midget/open divisions claimed prizes for their skills and bragging rights till next year.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all who enjoyed a snack from the BBQ.  All proceeds go towards our year end banquet, prize table and awards.  We appreciate all the help from our volunteers, umpires and executive who ran a successful tournament.  Thank you to our sponsors for their help and support.

Divisional Practice sessions

Sundays we have practices by division at Handley and Kelly ball fields.

10am-noon - all Squirt teams (infield, outfield and batting cages).

Noon-2pm - all Novice/Bantam teams

2pm-4pm - Select/Midget/Open timeslots to vary

These fields are contracted through the City of North Bay and there for us to use.  Should anyone other than our membership be on these fields at these times, please kindly let them know they can use them after 4pm.  Any issues with this, please contact Aaron Northrup or Richard Michauville and they can help settle any conflicts.

Season Start

RAIN OUT cancellations are determined by the City of North Bay - announced late in the afternoon and will be posted ONLY to our Facebook page as soon as we find out.  If you see nothing posted, assume you play.  Umpires can cancel a game at their discretion at the field.

Uniforms will be handed out once all orders have come in - everyone is to wear acceptable pants and t-shirts until then (NO spandex, NO shorts, NO tank tops, NO metal cleats, NO jewelry).  We are hoping to have everything handed out within the next 2 weeks.

Make sure to read the  Code of Conduct posted at all City fields.  It applies to Parents, Players, Coaches and Fans who attend games and practices.  We have a ZERO tolerance policy for unsportsmanlike behaviour in our league.  The players are here to play - let's let them enjoy their summer and have some fun!  There are no Major League scouts at any of our games, so mistakes can be made without judgement, strike outs WILL happen for every player and errors are part of the learning process.  We celebrate good plays for both teams, and support good effort by all players - no matter the colour of their jersey.

Lost and Found

If you have lost a glove - we have 4 already turned in this season.  Contact Rod Goode - equipment director - to identify and claim yours.  Also have a small multi-coloured jacked turned in at one of the first conditioning sessions.  Unclaimed items are donated to a local charity at the end of the season.

The North Bay Minor Girls' Softball Association is always looking for dedicated volunteers.

 

If you are interested in helping out, please contact Aaron Northrup at president@nbmgsa.ca
