Whitby Tier 1 Pee Wee Father's Day Classic Champs!
Congratulations to Coach Ryder and his Tier 1 Pee Wee team as they came home with the gold, as Champions of the Father’s Day Classic in Whitby.
Despite falling to the Peterborough Tigers 5-2 in their opening game, the team came back strong mercying their opponents from Scarborough 12-2 on Saturday morning and from the Ajax Spartans on Saturday afternoon, led by an impressive 400 foot homerun from Evan Wright and a Grand SLam by Owen Sol. With only 7 defensive runs allowed, the Eagles won the tie breaker and moved on to Sunday play.
Sunday morning the Eagles had an impressive 12-5 win over the Royal York Cardinals. Josh Ryder went 4.5 scoreless innings on the mound and Jason Green smashed a 2 run home run to help his team to the win.
Sunday afternoon saw a rematch from Friday night as the Eagles faced the Peterborough Tigers in a hard fought victory. The game MVP was Jack Stott who came in for the save.
On top of their tournament win, team member Owen Sol came home with the tournament MVP honors. Owen hit a GO Ahead Grand Slam in game 2 and had an 8 consecutive at-bat hit streak through the Semi-Final and Finals.
