POSITIVE WEEK WRAPS UP AT LEGIONAIRES BASEBALL CAMP
   

It was a fun and positive week for the 1st ever Oshawa Legionaires Baseball Camp held this past week at Kinsmen Civic Memorial Stadium. I'd like to thank Jamie Baker (Assistant coach with my Peewee Legionaires team) for assisting this week and doing a great job! I'd like to thanks the parents for signing their child or children up for our camp. I would also like to thank each player who attended for their super efforts and desire to learn the game of baseball and work hard all week, despite some hot weather conditions. The week covered numerous aspects of the game with skills, drills, and interactive games and contests that required the skills learned each day. Plenty of rotations of Batting practice sessions throughout the week  including use of the MLB Big Bubba setup at home plate. Video analysis was used as well. Each morning a proper Major League dynamic stretch was undertaken, followed by our progressive throwing warmup. A fun swimming afternoon to beat the heat (ala The Sandlot) on Thursday afternoon took place at the Rotary Outdoor pool!  Players were also introduced to the Steve Delabar/Brett Cecil "Weighted Ball Program". Then the camp wrapped up this afternoon with the big Legionaires BASEBALL OLYMPICS!  Which was a blast for all involved. Opening ceremonies, flags, team chants created, team colours worn etc. Congrats to Japan for capturing the overall Gold Medal in the 8 event competition. And a free pizza lunch today!! All in all a fun week at the Stadium in which the players will have learned alot about the game of baseball and also many things they can take away to help them as players and as teammates.

OSHAWA PLAYER PLACES 2ND OVERALL AT ROGERS CENTRE FINAL
OF THE MLB PHR ONTARIO CHAMPIONSHIP
 

Advancing all the way through the Scotts 2013 Major League Baseball PITCH HIT & RUN Competition from Local Event, to Sectional Event to the Toronto Blue Jays TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS, Braden Babcock (age 12) proudly represented the Oshawa Legionaires, City of Oshawa and the EOBA as one of the grand finalists today at the ROGERS CENTRE. All 30 Major League teams are holding their TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP Finals this week with the overall winner having a shot at advancing to the MLB PHR National Championship during All-Star Week in New York city at the 2013 MLB All-Star Game hosted by the New York Mets at Citi Field July 15th.  Today was the Blue Jays turn. In a very close competition, when all three events were done, Braden competed well, but fell just a few points short in taking top honours in his Age Division (11/12).  A second place finish in Ontario is quite an accomplishment and what a terrific experience had by all final participants at the Rogers Centre.  They received VIP treatment all day, stationed in the visting team dugout, on field competition on the same field as the Bluejays, special awards ceremony, with beautiful awards, as well as free tickets to the Jays vs Texas Rangers game afterwards.  Congrats Braden!  Be sure to watch for the 2014 MLB PHR Competiion next May.  Great job hosting by the Toronto Blue Jays.

OSHAWA SHINES AT MLB PITCH HIT AND RUN SECTIONALS IN MISSISSAUGA
    With a trip to the Rogers Centre and the Finals at stake, six Oshawa Minor baseball players that qualified at the Baseball Oshawa hosted MLB PHR Local Area Competition last week, represented Oshawa extremely well at the MLB PHR Sectional Championships held today across Ontario. The trip to Mississauga today saw Oshawa players bring home 5 overall medals in the Sectionals competition. Just awesome!! Oshawa blue and gold was everywhere today!!  Gabby Marshall finsihed third overall and captured Bronze Medal honours in the Girls 11/12 Division. Meanwhile Nolan Hartley won the Bronze Medal finishing 3rd overall in the Boys 7/8 Division and Luke Torrence brought home overall Bronze in the Boys 9/10 Division.  Two more medals went Oshawa's way as Braden Babcock won the overall Boys 11-12 Division Gold medal and Addam Wilson took Bronze in the Boys 11/12 Division, finishing 1-3 in that age division overall.  Brodie Baker also competed well and just missed an overall medal in the Boys 9/10 Division.   What a great showing for Oshawa today at the Major League Baseball PITCH HIT & RUN 2013 SECTIONALS. Woo Hoo!!! Overall Gold Medalists will now wait to see if their overall score rated top 3 in the province amongst all Sectionals for a chance to qaulify for the MLB PHR Bluejays Finals at the Rogers Centre. As you'll recall Oshawa's Connor May won the finals in his age category 3 summers ago at the Rogers Centre. Hopefully there is more good news for Oshawa with another of its players advancing to the Finals.   Special thanks to the organizers and volunteers from Mississauga North Tigers Baseball Association for hosting today's Sectional Event for Boys and Girls!  A great day!

BASEBALL PLEASED TO ADD "BIG BUBBA" TO KINSMEN CIVIC MEMORIAL STADIUM
  Pleased to note that Kinsmen Civic Memorial Stadium is now the proud new home to a BIG BUBBA Top of the line Major League batting turtle.   It is being paid for by Baseball Oshawa, Durham College and LOSSA on a three way spilt.   It is the former batting turtle from a defunct minor league team in Illinois. Used only one season and was stored cleanly indoors over the winter.  It is in terrific shape.  Looks new.  Pleased to say that it was delivered to the Stadium yesterday afternoon and we unloaded and stored it. Thanks to Durham College head coach Sam Dempster for finding this great deal. This is very exciting and will be a great addition to the Stadium for home and visiting teams to use. Not to mention the extraordinary savings on BP balls for this upcoming season.

HEAD COACH TONY QUICK ATTENDED TORONTO BLUE JAYS COACHING CLINIC
 

The Toronto Blue Jays in connection with Baseball Canada held a major Coaches Clinic Jan. 4-6 at the Rogers Centre with an all-star group of instructors.  Cy Young winner Pat Hentgen, Homer Bush, DeMarlo Hale, Chad Mottola, Duane Ward, Lloyd Moseby and more.  What a weekend with Hot Stove Lounge, Coaching Instruction on field and in classroom, NCCP threads, and also a Coaches BP session on field.  Our very own Tony Quick (Oshawa Minor Bantam Legionaires Head Coach pictured here with Pat Hentgen) is in the recap video now posted on the Blue Jays website following the Toronto Blue Jays National Coaches Clinic held at the Rogers Centre last weekend. Very cool!!  We love what the Jays are doing at the grass roots level. Every coach should look at attending next year.  Click here to see the video.
