Cambridge Cubbies Tournament Champions!
Submitted By Bob Caron on Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Congratulations to our boys on being crowned the winners of the inaugural Cambridge Cubbies Classic Rookieball tournament.

We had a beautiful weekend to play baseball, and the boys proved that hard work during practices pays off on the field.  Although we hadn't even played a regular season game prior to the tournament (where East York had already played 9!), the boys showed if you play like you practice, you can have success.

The keys to our success this weekend were hustle, knowing where the play is, keeping the force on at first by having the outfielders get the ball into second base quickly, and LOUD third base coaching...(my voice still isn't quite back)  :-)

I've never been part of a game where a team came all the way back to score 5 runs in the bottom of the seventh inning with 2 outs for the walk-off victory in the championship final...amazing grit and determination to never give up.  East York was already beginning to inscribe their name on the championship plaque!  Hopefully this was a great lesson for the boys to keep playing hard until the very last out is recorded.  In baseball, ANYTHING can happen..which again proves why it is SO much of a better game than soccer!

Thanks to all the parents for making the weekend a successful and fun time.  I think all of the boys grew together as a team, which will help us as we move forward this season.  Enjoy the next couple of days off...they are well earned.  See you at the diamond soon.
