BEAMSVILLE CAPTURES PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIP!
The Beamsville Stringers 11U Rep team competed in the “B” Division Ontario Baseball Championships (OBA’s) in Windsor, Ontario this past Saturday. This year’s tournament was comprised of two 6-game series. In round 1 the Stingers went 5 wins and 1 loss advancing them to the championship bracket. The competition was fierce and the team went on to finish with 5 more wins and only 1 loss – making them the OBA “B” Division champions. This was back-to back-victories for this small-town team – who won the OBA Championship “D” Division 2 years ago, led by Coach Dustin Wiley. OBA’s were not held last season. The games were filled with hard work, buy in and dedication by both the coaches and players. The final two games highlighted strong pitching by Koren Fife and Brayden Walker. First, they battled Lasalle, the top-seeded team with Maddon Smith grounding a ball to score Brayden Walker for the first run of the game. The game was tied 3-3 in the fifth when Paxton Kot doubled and scored the go-ahead run. Robert, Cash and Koren all had multiple hits in this must-win game. The final game against Listowel displayed a strong 9-4 win with Robert Cormier and Carter Thompson on the mound. Lucas Whitnell led things off with a single scoring the first run. Carter Thompson and Cash Wiley both socked an out of the park home-runs in the fifth and sixth innings. The boys finished the game committing 0 errors and clinching the title of OBA Champions.
Beamsville Minor Baseball Association has been providing local youth with the opportunity to play baseball for 40+ years. We endeavour to create & support a baseball experience for local youth that strives for a balance between fun, competition, and player development. We have placed an emphasis on providing the tools and training to our volunteer coaches that will allow them to be effective teachers and role models for our players. Players at all skill levels are welcome to join our league.
We are dedicated to providing our players a fun, team-oriented learning experience; teaching the fundamental physical and mental skills associated with the game of baseball; promoting respect, sportsmanship, competitiveness, and teamwork in a positive family environment.
We believe the life lessons learned on the baseball field are important for the development and growth of our children. Our hope is that the players will develop a life-long love of the game, both on and off the field.
