GOFLers playing with Bear Creek Express

With the "official" Canadian national softball championships cancelled this year, Softball Canada is still putting on an event for Senior Men in Saskatoon from September 2 - 5 to be known as the Rawlings Grand Slam.

There are ten Senior Men's teams participating, representing B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. There are also nine U23 men's teams at the event. The newly formed Bear Creek Express out of Melbourne, ON will be participating in the Senior Men's side, put together by Paul "Chico" McCart. 

Three GOFLers will be on the Bear Creek team. Matt Greer, normally with the Quyon Flyers but this year with West Carleton Electric is playing, along with Joran Graham of the Micksburg Twins and Gregg Garrity of the Kars Aces. Scott Searle of Orleans, who is currently coaching the Team Ontario U21 squad getting ready for the 2022 Canada games is also coaching with Bear Creek at the event.

The three players will also be going to the International Softball Congress World Tournament in Iowa in mid-August with the Express.
