This player went from being a shy kid on the team who didn't want to go on the field to one of the happiest kids running the bases. When his bat connected with the ball, his whole face lit up. His batting really improved by the end of the season. Congratulations to Aayden Burke. 

Tyke Top Teammate - Kaleb Brown

This player showed up to his team's first practice 'shot out of a cannon' and kept that positive energy all year. The gentle giant of his team, he was quick to celebrate efforts, whether his team's or his opponents', and was a pleasure to have on the field. Congratulations to Kaleb Brown.

Peewee Flo Hall Award Top Girl

Hana Muryama

This individual is a strong athlete with a great attitude, a role model for younger players. At one particular game, the umpire, seeing her skill, asked if she would consider pursuing baseball farther—telling her about her incredible potential. A leader on the field, she routinely had parents on both sides of the diamond commenting on her ability, positive attitude, and knowledge of the game. One nominator said, "she gives the boys a run for their money," but many more commented that, as a pitcher and a teammate, she was the standard those boys should aspire to be. Congratulations to Hana Muryama.

Chris Traynor Award (Coach of the Year)

Adam Chaudhary and Kevin Nippak

At the Peewee level, the Coach of the Year Award has special meaning for Baseball Oshawa and House League. At our last awards night in 2019, we had the pleasure of recognizing Chris Traynor for his involvement with his son Joey's team that year as head coach. Chris was a model coach for many years with Baseball Oshawa. He epitomized what we look for in a coach: dedicated, skilled, caring, and, yes, funny. We are honoured to have Loretta Traynor with us tonight as we present the Chris Traynor Award for House League's Peewee Coach of the Year. This year, the award goes to two very deserving coaches.  

Our first coach has been a consistently positive presence, and though he can't make it tonight, I will point out that he's started to really develop a fan club and is a great example for other HL coaches to follow. He's described in glowing terms by his nominators, with a consistent focus on engaging the kids and having fun at all times. Congratulations to Kevin Nippak (not able to attend tonight).

In his first year as a baseball head coach, this coach, led by example, was a great inspiration to his team, always positive, encouraging, and prepared. He focused on improving skills from top to bottom, and his team took the championship at the end of the year. Congratulations to Adam Chaudhary.

TIE Peewee Player of the Year - Kaden Benoit and Hana Muryama

This player gave 100% at every game, encouraged her teammates and led by example. She was given the opportunity to pitch for the first time and just kept getting better, developing what many called the best fastball in the league. Congratulations to Hana Muryama.

His coach couldn't say enough about the positive and coachable attitude he possesses. A most reliable player, highly skilled in every aspect of the game with a dangerous bat, and always encouraging his teammates. Congratulations to Kaden Benoit.

Peewee Pitcher of the Year - Isaiah Batista Dos Santos

In his 2nd year of pitching, this player rose to the level of a premier pitcher among his peers, with speed, control, intensity and composure. And to go along with it, an absolutely fantastic and coachable attitude. Congratulations to Isaiah Batista Dos Santos.

Peewee Most Improved - Nicolas Sanocki

This player has always been dependable both at bat and on the field, but he established himself as a "feared" batter this season. At one point, his coach started warning opposing 3rd basemen to be ready because he was hitting it that hard. Congratulations to Nicolas Sanocki.

Peewee Top Teammate - Everett Chaudhary

This player was the youngest player on the team, and his commitment to improving definitely showed in how his skills developed over the season — a well-deserved recognition to a great teammate. Congratulations to Everett Chaudhary. 



Bantam Top Female - Claire Delville

This player was solid with the bat and in the field, all year and willingly accepted playing any position needed. A great competitor and teammate, she encouraged and advised her teammates, seemed to thrive as games wore on, and played a key role pitching and catching for the team. With a solid baseball IQ and a good understanding of pitch selection, she was an inspiring and enthusiastic presence to all her teammates. Congratulations to Claire Delville.   

Bantam Coach of the Year - Rod Fitchett 

This coach gave constant encouragement and support to all players and did a great job this year to keep his team engaged. His approach resulted in a close-knit team that had a lot of fun. Congratulations to Rod Fitchett.

Bantam Player of the Year - Nick Rasmussen

This player was a fierce competitor and was respected by opposing players for his skill and competitiveness: a great pitcher, catcher and overall teammate. Congratulations to Nick Rasmussen. 

Bantam Pitcher of the Year - Miguel Franco de Sa

This individual has only played baseball for 4 years. He has gone from throwing a baseball for the first time on a beach in Brazil 4 years ago to pitching with an arsenal of fastball, curveball and a slider. An amazing show of dedication and skill. Congratulations to Miguel Franco de Sa. 

Bantam Most Improved - Jordan Smith

This player only picked up a glove two years ago but spent all his spare time pushing to get better and was able to pitch at the end of the season — a great example of determination and drive. Congratulations to Jordan Smith. 

Bantam Top Teammate - Mitchell Duncan

This player was his team's best offensive player, had great speed on the base paths, and could play multiple positions at a very high level. He was always there to pick up teammates, and no matter the score, he could be counted on to be upfront, giving advice or cheering on each play. Congratulations to Mitchell Duncan. 

House League Volunteer of the Year – Ryan March

This person has coached for years now within the Baseball Oshawa House League program. He very clearly puts his heart into the game and the experience of his players. He is respected by parents and players alike for providing all players with opportunities (even pitching). This year, he stepped forward to join Baseball Oshawa as the House League Mosquito Convenor and demonstrated a consistent willingness to ensure the league ran as smoothly as possible. In addition to this, he has joined the coaching staff of our Select 11U team for 2022. We appreciate his involvement, and we look forward to continuing to work with Ryan to build the House League and Select programs. Congratulations to our House League Volunteer of the Year, Ryan March.
