Two Long Time Flyers Offically Retire...
It truly was a sad day around the Flyers clubhouse when two well beloved, long time Port Hope Flyers decided to hang up their bat and glove. Second baseman Brandon Duck (#7) and Shortstop/Catcher/Outfielder Brett Jiggins (#44) both made the call this year to retire and enjoy life after baseball.
Duck was one of the most knowledge and smart ball players on that field. He kept it simple, did what he know he was capable of and played hard all the time. Duck was also a great team leader for the younger guys that have come up through the Flyers Organization. He played great defense, rarely struck out, put the ball in play and came up big when he was needed the most. He will be missed around the clubhouse.
Jiggy is arguably the best Flyer to ever put on Port Hope jersey. He was that 5 tool ball player that every team dreams about having and every team hated playing against. Jiggy could play any position he wanted to in the field with ease. He had speed to burn and brought a BIG left handed stick to the yard every game. Jiggy had fire in him for the game of baseball and everybody around the ball park could see that. Jiggy was a big part of the Flyers being around for so long and he truly will be missed on the field and the corner spot inside the clubhouse.
The Flyers Organization gives you both standing "O's" for what you meant and brought to this team! All the best to these great Flyers and their future endeavours.
Flyers Kick Off Their 50th Season in 2018...
The Port Hope Flyers will kick off their 50th season this coming year. Now lets take time to think about how rare this occurrence is in amateur baseball. A team existing for 50 years takes a lot of dedicated people over the years who love the game so much that they want to be involved to keep the team going whether it's players, coaches, mothers, fathers, girlfriends, wife's, and their fans. An organization that has players and coaches that want to play for every year for 50 years...truly amazing! This is a great accomplishment for The Flyers and the town of Port Hope.
The Flyers will open their season the same way they have opened in the past three years by playing the OSBA finalists, Whitby Chiefs. The doubleheader is Saturday May 12th starting at 12:00pm at Town Park. Come out and support your Flyers all year long!!
Flyers 2018 Coming up Fast!

RP Joey Medhurst came in for the final 2 outs and stole the win.

Game #4, The Flyers had to race over to Harvey Jackson Park in Kendal to face the host team. It wouldn't be an OBA Championship without the long time rivals matching up again. The Flyers bats stayed hot and jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the 1st inning but Kendal would strike back with a run in the 2nd and 2 runs in the 3rd inning. This game stayed this way till the 6th when Kendal rallied with 2 outs to score 3 runs to make it 6-2. The Flyers had many chances get this game closer but in the end The Eagles were too much and eliminated The Flyers by a 6-3 margin. Stars of the game for The Flyers were SP Bobby Gilligan by going 2-3 with a RBI, RP Mike McNaught was 1-1 with a RBI and RF Kyle Hogg was 2-4 with a run scored. SP Gilligan started his 2nd straight game and again just ran out of gas in the 6th to take the loss.
