Good news, bad news for Fitzroy fans of minor ball

It was a busy weekend for fans of fastball in Fitzroy Harbour this weekend with mixed results.

As two teams were at the Glen Cairn Men's Tournament composed almost exclusively of Fitzroy Town League players, there was lots of minor ball also going on for Fitzroy parents this weekend.

The village was celebrating however on Saturday during West Carleton Minor Softball Championship Day. The Harbour hosted the event for four different levels: Mites (U10 mixed), Squirt Boys (U12), Peewee Boys (U14) and Squirt/Peewee Girls. In every level, the Fitzroy entry made it to the A final. And in all four tiltle games the Fitzroy teams won bragging rights for the 2012 West Carleton house league season. The fourth championship was a nailbiter as Fitzroy Junior's team won 11-10 in the mites game to complete the sweep.

On to Sunday where the West Carleton Mites Select team (comprised of Fitzroy, Kinburn and Carp players) participated in a "tri-meet" in McNab. First up was the McNab host team who won a close 3-1 game over the WC crew. The second game was a little more high scoring as Micksburg defeated West Carleton 18-6. With a pair of brothers unavailable  for WC for game two, the seven-year old Caveman was pressed into service to play against the nine and ten-year olds and was very excited about being part of the game. He took three walks (two of them with the bases loaded) and scored a run. Who says being 3'11" doesn't have advantages! The WC Selects main problem is we have great pitchers in warm up - but once a batter gets in there it's a different story. (We're working on it.) It's great to see the pitching training for local teams playing off and well-played ball by an Under 10 group.

Any select or rep minor teams looking for games, let me know and I can try and connect you with some folks that I know are looking to play.
