Thank you to our Fabulous Fenwick Lions who operated the Consession all weekend for drinks and food in between games.
There were some great baseball moments and a great time had by all. Pelham Panthers Mosquito Rep team played well and made the semi-finals only to loose by 1 run to Uxbridge.
After the semi-finals it came down to Uxbridge vs. Welland for the Championship. It was a sea-saw battle back and forth with some excellent pitching and great defence in the last inning when the dust had settled Uxbridge came out on top winning by 1 run.
