The standings have been updated and we are in third place with a record of 4-2-2. Therefore, our chances of going to Richmond Hill on the long weekend are good, so please make arrangements and let me know if you are unavailable so I can call up replacements.
Our practice location for Wednesday has changed. We will meet at Gledhill School where there are two small diamonds we can use. The school is at the foot of Gledhill Avenue, a block above Danforth. Gledhill is the street that runs south from Stan Wadlow at the Curling Club. At the south end, Gledhill is at Toronto Honda.

Wow! A breakthrough weekend for the team and a tremendously gutsy performance in Etobicoke by everyone: 3-0 in a tournament for the first time. It was a big disappointment to lose the semi-final the way we did but still, we fought back to the end. Congratulations to everyone. The biggest lesson of the day was a tough one, baseball can be cruel. Sometimes the decisions go our way and sometimes they don't. I know there were questions we could have asked about "the call" in the 7th but I know from experience that those arguments go nowhere and are best chalked up to experience.
Coach George will be guiding you for the next two practices and games while Coach David and family are up north on vacation. Good luck against North Toronto and Wexford/Agincourt.

Congratulations Bulldogs on your first ever weekend of "Baseball Survivor-West Hill". It was a long day and took its toll by the third game but you all held up well. There were some good moments to learn from.
And, to follow up with a convincing win on the Sunday evening against North York was a nice way to end the weekend.

Congratulations Bulldogs, a nice way to end our first tournament: with a big 15-0 win and a medal! With fewer errors Saturday we could have been playing Sunday night but, ah well, we'll get 'em next time.

Well done Bulldogs, a 4-4 tie against a team that's been doing well against the other teams in the league. It was obvious our practice made a difference and there was a 100 per cent improvement tonight, congratulations.

We are looking at holding some additional hitting practices, which we will try to organize, probably working with a portion of the squad at different times, as you are available. We'll post the times as soon as we can schedule time in the batting cage.
