ICBA Player Captures OBA Youth Player of the Year Honors
Brett Talbot of the Kitchener Peewee Tier 1 team captured the OBA Player of the Year award at the recent OBA Awards Banquet. Brett who is a two time winner of the ICBA Player of the year award capped off a stellar season by being named Player of Year for Ontario Baseball. Brett and his Kitchener team mates came within one game of capturing the Peewee Elimination tournament and going on to the Peewee Dairy Queen Nationals being held in Woodstock this past summer. Brett was picked up by the eventual elimination winners the Mississauga Twins in their drive to a National Championship. Brett and his team mates captured the 2019 Peewee Dairy Queen National Championship title with an undefeated run through the tournament. They met the team from British Columbia in the final and once again Brett played his part during the game with a big hit to put Ontario in the lead they never relinquished. Brett recorded the last out on a shot down the 3rd base line that he snagged to end the game. Brett was also named the tournament MVP to cap it all off. The ICBA congratulates Brett on his outstanding year and wish him more success as he continues along his baseball path.
OBA Award Winners from Inter County 2019 Season
The Inter County would like to congratulate the following individuals that captured OBA awards at the recent AGM held in Guelph this past November.
Our first award winner was Alex Hall from Cambridge Ontario. Alex captured the Dick Willis Junior Umpire of the year award. Alex had previously won the ICBA award for Junior Umpire within Inter County and this capped off a tremendous season for young Alex. We look forward to seeing Alex on the fields next season as he hones his work with the Cambridge Officials.
Congratulations Alex well done.
Our next award winner was Jackson Wright from Cambridge, Ontario. Jackson claimed the Fergie Jenkins pitcher award for Rep 13U and under. Jackson plays for the Cambridge Cubs 11U team and was instrumental in his teams success not only as a pitcher but an all round player. Jackson also won the Inter County 13U and under Youth Pitcher of the year award at the recent ICBA Awards Gala. Congratulations Jackson on an outstanding 2019 season and best of luck as you continue your baseball career.
Our last award went to the National Champion 13U team from Cambridge coached by Chad Dube. This team was named the Rep team of the year for 13U and down. This award capped off a tremendous year for the Inter County Cambridge Cubs. Chad and his coaching staff have worked tirelessly over the past several seasons to prepare this team to enter eliminations and a chance to compete for a National Championship. They defeated the Brampton Royals 13U for the right to represent Ontario at Nationals and then went to Quebec and led the field of opponents to go undefeated through out the tournament and beat the host Quebec team in the final to claim Gold for Ontario and themselves. This is the first team from Inter County to win a National 13U championship since the Waterloo Tigers 13U team coached by Mike Moogk in 1998. The Inter County is extremely proud of the accomplishments of this group of players and their coaches for all the sweat and tears they produced over the years to bring home the Gold. Congratulations Cubbies on a fantastic year.

Cambridge Umpire Captures OBA Youth Umpire of Year Award
Jim McIntrye of Cambridge Minor Baseball Association captured the Ontario Baseball Dick Willis award at their recent OBA Award gala. Jim was also the winner of the ICBA Youth Umpire Level I II this past season. Jim was considered the type of umpire all associations look for in calling games while mentoring others. CMBA was fortunate to have an umpire that they could always count on even on short notice. Jim was constantly leading by example and helping out the younger umpires in our system understanding the rules and decorum an umpire should show on the field. The Inter County is very proud of Jim's accolades and wish him all the best going forward in his umpiring career.
