The Dundas Minor All-Star Team, had a great experience, playing in the Minor District Tournament in Stoney Creek from July 12-18.

We would like to thank the Hosts, Stoney Creek Optimist Little League for hosting a great tournament. There was in game music, a bbq, a great concession stand and great baseball. Something our team will never forget.

Game #1

We started off the tournament against the powerhouse High-Park and had a tough 10-0 loss.

Highlight of the game: Ben Surette scoreless inning pitching.

Game #2

This game was scheduled against Erindale, unfortunately Erindale could not field enough players to play, so we got a 6-0 win.

Game #3

Game three was against another powerhouse in Oakville, this was an amazing game, we came up on the losing end of a close one, losing 11-8, but everyone played great and the team really came together. A couple bounces here or there and we would have had the win!

Highlight of the Game: Toby Woerner 4 and 2/3 innings pitched, lost count of the amount of strikeouts!

The coaches are very proud of the team, and would like to thank everyone for a great tournament, thank you to the parents for making it to the games! Looking forward to our next tournament.

Thanks!

Coaching positions for the 2020 Season

 

Hello everyone

Attached you will find all the information you need to apply for coaching positions for the 2020 Season.   All NEW coaches fill in the 2019 Volunteer Application (if you are a returning coach from this year, you don’t need to fill this form out).   House League Coaches also fill in their specific Application form.   Those wishing to be an All-Star or Select coach have three applications to fill in (Volunteer/House League Coach/All-Star and/or Select).

As a result of the positive feedback and interest in our coaching positions, we have moved up the entire process with the goal of having all our coaches in place by end of August 2019!

Beyond the coaching applications, keep a look out for An Expression of Interest meeting to be held for those players and parents/guardians interested in being involved with either our All-Star or Select teams in 2020.

It’s critical for our League to have our coaches in place early to retain players and build upon this year’s many successes.  Please join us in continuing the high quality of coaching in our League.

T-ball All-stars Thank You!

This past weekend was the Annual World T-ball Championship based in Ancaster, Ontario.

The Dundas team entered the tournament as the reigning AA division champions from 2018, but were quickly moved up 2 full divisions for this year into the Major division. After going 3-0 in the Round Robin, the playoffs brought new opponents in Orangeville, Ancaster A, and an old foe in Oakville.

Ultimately the team made it to the Major Division finals for what is believed to be the first time ever for the Dundas organization! The Ancaster team was a bit too much on this day, and after 7 games in 4 days, we lost to Ancaster in the finals, placing 2nd out of 25 teams from across the province.

Some highlights that need to be noted are the amazing efforts by some of the players: Brayden Westoby for coming back from a gruesome injury on Sunday night, to play in both the semi final and final on Monday; Multiple homeruns from players such as Grayson Karschti, James Kostandoff and Henry Hawkins; Amazing defensive plays by the likes of Nolan Lounsbury and Rory Scott; the perseverance of injured players like Liam Meyer and amazing sportsmanship exhibited by Myles Gilbert; and kids playing some of their best ball of the year in Mason Peters, Ryleigh Brown, Henderson Richard and Karson Emery.

The biggest highlight though was the incredible fan base that came out for 4 days in the hot sun to cheer on the team. We even had parents and players not involved on the team come out and cheer us on which really made the players feel great. Thank you to all for your support!

Dundas Little League were asked to help co-host the event due to the Canadian National championships on-going in Ancaster as well. Martino Park was the site for over 20 of the tournaments games. A huge shout out to all the volunteers who helped in the preparation and execution of the event, as we were praised by visitors from all over Ontario for our hospitality.

Coaches Ron, Ryan and Darren want to send all the players, parents, fans, and volunteers a heart felt THANK YOU for everything you put into making this the most successful Ancaster World T-ball Tournament for the Dundas Little League in history!

Sincerely,

Coach Ron

Cactus Cup tournament

The Dundas 9U Rookieball Team would like to thank all of the players, parents, family members, umpires, and volunteers that came out for the inaugural Cactus Cup tournament on August 17th, 2019.   This year’s format was a four team friendly round robin with teams from Brantford, Beamsville, and Guelph.  All the games were tight scores and high level ball.

The Dundas 9U team has enjoyed a great year of development with over twenty games against solid competition.  We look forward to building off this foundation for the 2020 season.

Thanks!
