Bob Stark Tournament ~ Champions!!
Submitted By Kent Weber on Monday, July 10, 2017
Congrats to our Major Rookie boys (b.2008) for going undefeated on a rain-delayed 3-day weekend to capture their first Tournament Title of the 2017 Season.   

After a Friday night washout gave way to a beautiful Saturday,  pool play included a two-day 18-3 win over the Kanata Cubs, and a 16-1 victory over the Woodslee Orioles.  

In the Semi-Final, against a tough Waterloo squad, the Major Rookies found themselves in a big hole early, after the Tigers put 7 runs on them in the first Inning, sponsored by a series of well-placed hits.  But even down 0-7, the TinCaps kept their composure and chipped away at a different ending.  The boys went on to hold Waterloo scoreless over the next 5 innings with superb lock-down defense that included three run-saving Outfield Assists, whilst scoring 15 unanswered runs for a 15-7 victory in the Sixth and a berth in the Final.

In the Championship game, the TinCaps met a talented and disciplined Hamilton Cardinal team that had dispatched all three of its previous opponents with mercy-rule wins, giving up just 5 runs in their 3 games.  But the TinCap defensive curtain and consistent bats proved too much. The boys pinned down an 11-2 win after 6 defensive innings, to stand on the 1st base line and collect their trophies.

Players and parents should be very proud of this accomplishment.  Moving into the second half of the season, the 2008’s have made huge strides forward in their teamwork, defensive execution and situational focus. Their trajectory continues up and to the right!  #TinCapStrong
