WELCOME TO THE HOME OF THE

OAKVILLE MASTERS MEN'S SLO-PITCH LEAGUE

 

Introducing our new sponsor for the 2018 season ---

   

 

 

October 13, 2017

After six seasons with Fionn MacCool’s, we have changed sponsors for the 2018 season.

The Pipes and Taps (Click on the name for a link to their web site) is located at 231 Oak Park Blvd #101, Oakvillle and is actually closer to our ball parks.  There is a very large parking lot behind the pub and the best way to describe its location is to advise that it is west, off Trafalgar behind Walmart.

On behalf of the Executive, Jim Moriarty has negotiated an excellent arrangement with The Pipes and Taps which includes some great incentives for team attendance.  In addition to their regular menu, they have put together a special $10.00 luncheon menu of eight different items.  We have tried several and are very pleased with the quality.

While we will miss the great Fionn servers, Pipes and Taps is a first-rate pub with an established reputation and will serve us well as our post games' meeting place.

OFF – SEASON GET- TOGETHER – OCTOBER 26: Our first Off-Season Get- together is scheduled for Thursday October 26 (12:00 noon) at Pipes and Taps.  If you can make it, please let me know so we may provide the pub an estimate of numbers for this first visit.

The following is our planned Off-season Get - Together' schedule (on the fourth Thursday of each month) at The Pipes & Taps:

October 26

November 23

January 25/18

February 22/18

March 22/18

On behalf of the OMMSPL Executive,

Thanks,

George

HEWGILL’S TEAMS EXCEL AT WORLD SENIOR GAMES

 

ALL FOUR TEAMS BRING HOME MEDALS

October 20, 2017

Harvey Hewgill sponsored teams for many years including the international competition at the World Senior Games in S,t. George Utah. 

After a week's competition, three teams advanced to the Finals on October 13 with the following results:

The Mississauga Legends75’s led by Jim Carey won Silver.

Hewcor Bandits  65’s headed by Larry Weber won Gold.

Hewcor Legends 60’s guided by Paul Hunter won Silver.

The Hewcor Bandits 70’s (Brian Sheridan & Grant Chapman) played one week later and are returning home with a Bronze medal.

Congratulations boys.  Harvey would be proud.

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE RED FACES  2017 REGULAR SEASON  & LEAGUE CHAMPIONS

 

In an exciting 9 - inning game the Red Faces overcame an early lead by the Blue Pills to win the OMMSPL Championship game 15 – 11. 

Reds’ Manager Doug Ford put on an offensive display with some daring base running and a grand slam.  Both teams provided some lively entertainment to the many in the stands.  It was a great game. 

At Fionn MacCool’s the Red Faces were awarded with both the Season Champions Trophy (1st place) and the League Champions Trophy.  This was only the second time in nine seasons that one team won both titles.   

Last year’s Bill Carson winner , Doug Wheeler, presented the character award posthumously to Harvey Hewgill. Harvey was elected by the Managers and Executive well  before his sudden passing.  Grant Chapman (another former winner) accepted the award on Harvey’s behalf.

Thank you to all for another great season.
