It was a pleasure running this tourney and from the feedback I heard, many many teams were happy with the split of the divisions early, which ensured they received at least 3 or 4 QUALITY games vs. possibly just one! We proved we could instill this level of quality even in a quick 10 team format!!!
Thanks for your patience, understanding and support of this initiative to give back to our Players!!!
VP – Barrie Slopitch Association
Did you and your players book off next Saturday/Sunday to play ball?
Are you sad because it traditionally is alot of fun to get everyone together with the summer ending at this time of the year?
SURPRISE!!! A New Coed Tourney has been confirmed for next Saturday the 29th!!!It’ll be significantly cheaper then most other tourneys and a quick one day! The diamonds were necessary for our League to reserve for our Sunday Divisions already so instead of paying cancellation fees, we’re reinvesting the money into a tourney for our players!!! Looking for 8 – 16 Coed Teams so first come first served!
Please feel free to check out the link labelled “SEPT 29TH SURPRISE TOURNEY” for more background and register accordingly!
See you at the fields! Should be fun!
UPDATE: SCHEDULES TO BE RELEASED THURSDAY BY NOON!
Reminder to all Teams, Players, Spectators etc. There is No smoking, including vaping at any public sports field in Ontario. If you continue to do so, you could be fined and if need be the township/city etc. can require the league to suspend the team from any further play or risk losing the diamonds completely. That is the Cold hard facts folks. Let’s try to work together.
Good evening to everyone in the Barrie Slo-pitch Community. I have some very disturbing news to share. Something happened tonight at the Georgian College Diamonds that has left me sick to my stomach and very, very concerned about our society and all the young people that come to watch parents / guardians / aunts / uncles etc at our games. PLEASE. PLEASE Read and Be AWARE, it can happen to you too!
Names etc. are not being supplied so as not to create issues with the family, but this DID happen tonight:
At approximately 7:00pm tonight at the Georgian diamond a young man approached 2 children aged 5 and 4 touched them on the head and asked them their names and inquiring about personal things about them. One of the fathers DID (thank God) notice him and started up the path to see what was going on. At this point the young man bolted from the scene. YES NOTHING HAPPENED, but it could have, PLEASE be diligent regarding your children and always be aware of any possible threat to them. I just had my grand daughters over for supper and got this news a couple of hours later, I shutter at the thought of any harm coming to them or anyone else’s child. Let’s not let this affect our game and the camaraderie that surrounds our game, but just be diligent.
City police and College security have both been notified, hopefully video surveillance of the area will provide a lead.
