2016 Meeting Schedule

It is that time again to get started on the coming season. As a reminder, all meetings are mandatory to attend or fines will ensue.

ALL bats MUST be tested by the league and stickered prior to play. Bat testing sheets will be available on the league web-site shortly (Updated for 2016). We will NOT supply bat testing sheets, nor will we test without a sheet. We will NOT be testing bats at the opening tournament, unless purchased that day, on site, from Home Run Sports. An in-year bat testing schedule will be handed out at the April meeting so bats can be tested throughout the year.

Further information on what bats are legal can be found here.

We have had some replies from roster players that do not wish to be on a team’s roster any longer. Please ensure that everyone on your roster WANTS to be on your roster and receive league communication, otherwise, remove them.

We have set the meeting schedule for the 2016 season (with the exception of the AGM in November).
All meetings will be at Louie’s on Lewis, 84 Lewis Road, Guelph.

The dates are as follows:

Thursday, February 11th @ 7:00pm

Last Night of the Regular Season

… And time for an update on the regular season!

Congratulations go out to Friar Tuck’s for taking Division I again this season! Their 17-2 record guarantees that no other team can catch them for top seed in the coming playoffs.

Congratulations also go out to Barzotti for eking out the top spot in Division III. Their 15-4-1 record could be matched by Rangers if they win tonight, but Barzotti’s 2-1-1 head-to-head record over Rangers guarantees them top spot.

Congratulations go out to … still to be determined in Division II.  Going into tonight’s action, we have a 4-way tie for 1st place!

So … some scenarios for you to consider.

If Pioneer, Unleashed and Blast win:

  • Blast loses to Unleashed on H2H
  • Unleashed loses to Pioneer on H2H
  • Pioneer loses to Blast on H2H

The tie breaker in this situation has to come down to +/- (no real need for any games to be played since we all make the playoffs).

If Pioneer, Unleashed and Master Batters win:

  • MB beats Pioneer on H2H
  • Unleashed and MB are tied 1-1
  • Pioneer beats Unleashed on H2H

Again, the only real solution is +/-.

If Pioneer loses and Unleashed wins:

  • If MB wins – Unleashed over MB on runs
  • If Blast wins – Unleashed over Blast on H2H

If Unleashed loses and Pioneer wins:

  • If MB wins – MB over Pioneer on H2H
  • If Blast wins – Blast over Pioneer on H2H

Run Differential:

  • +154 – Pioneer
  • +148 – Blast
  • +101 – Unleashed
  • +76 – MB

 

Playoffs

Playoffs will begin next Monday based on the tournament format we’ve followed the last couple of years. A copy of the playoff schedule is making it’s way to the site later today – check the main menu for a link when it is up.

Good luck tonight and in the coming playoffs!

Tonight’s Games Rescheduled

From the City of Guelph Sportsfield Status link:

Monday August 10, 2015

Due to saturated conditions, all sports fields and diamonds are closed until next scheduled inspection at 2:00pm tomorrow.

All cancelled games from tonight have been rescheduled for Wednesday, August 19th – (hopefully) the LAST DAY OF THE REGULAR SEASON.

The playoff schedule should be posted soon with games beginning the following Monday – August 24th. I expect we will be using our regular Tuesday diamonds for at least the first 2 weeks of the playoff schedule, so please make sure your team is prepared to play on ANY of our regularly scheduled nights.

Opening Tournament

The Opening Tournament starts this Friday and continues through to Saturday evening – and at this point the weather looks to be steamy!

Updated: Tournament results can be found here.

Congratulations to the winning teams:

  • Friar Tucks beat Mudcats in back to back games to win A Division.
  • Master Batters took the 2nd game of back-to-back games over Havana Blast for the B Division title.
  • Rangers played the minimum number of games to beat Line Drive and take C Division.

We are trying something a little different at the tourney with the schedule and with the reporting procedure for game results. Game On Mobile is a web presence that hosts league and tournament schedules and information, and they’ve also developed an app for better viewing on mobile devices.
The complete schedule can be found here and a link for the app should be available on the site.

Scores can be reported at the diamonds or by text to Marc Bender at (905) 520-5071 or to Brad Mitchell at (519) 546-6307.

There will be a food truck on site Saturday and open for breakfast. The menu will include peameal, egg and cheese on a bun and muffins and they will have Tim Hortons coffee available for a loonie. 

Good luck to everyone and let’s have an enjoyable tourney. Play safe!
