August is playoff time for select and rep baseball teams across the province. This month we have seen many successful runs by Bloordale teams, including two Toronto Baseball Association (TBA) west championship teams.
The Bloordale Bombers Green 9U Select team wrapped up their season as champions. The Bombers were undefeated during the championship weekend, taking the TBA championship in the final against a very strong Royal York Cardinals (White) team.
We have great kids, great parents and 5 coaches who really get along well together. – David Kim, 14U A HC
Seven other Bloordale teams made it to the final game, three of whom will be playing in provincial championship tournaments on Labour Day weekend.
11U Select (qualified for Provincials)
13U Select Green (qualified for Provincials)
15U Select Green (qualified for Provincials)
13U AA (qualified for Provincials)
Bloordale is proud of all our teams. Good luck to the six teams advancing to the provincial finals on Labour Day weekend.
Finally, Bloordale Baseball was pleased to help host many playoff games, including the entire 9U Select TBA west championship.
