COBA Major League Mid-Season Recap


With the Canada Day weekend upon us and teams having a much needed break for a little bit, I figured I would take the opportunity to recap the league and it teams to this point in the season. Even though the season is half done already, the busy part of it is yet to come with the second half of the regular season coming up plus the Lakeside Tournament, the Hap Walters Tournament and the Ontario Provincial Elimination tournament all are in the horizon as well. The recap can be found below this post in the link or in the news portion of the website.

Steve Breitner shares a hug with former Etobicoke Ranger and current Cinninati Reds 1B Joey Votto after delivering the ceremonial first pitch in last night’s series opener at the Rogers Center…

It was an emotional night last night at the Rogers Center in Toronto as Etobicoke Rangers veteran bench boss Steve “Whitey” Breitner was honored by the Toronto Blue Jays organization for his service and commitment to baseball both for the Etobicoke Rangers Senior Baseball Club as well as the province of Ontario. Click the link below which will take you to the story about the night at the Rogers Center which was summed up beautifully by Bob Elliott (@elliottbaseball) at the Canadian Baseball Network.

Tecumseh Captures 4th Consectuative Ontario Sr AAA Title

2017 Ontario Senior AAA Elimination Champions – Tecumseh Thunder

In what was one of the craziest finals in some time, the Tecumseh Thunder Sr Baseball Club captured their 4th consecuative Ontario Sr AAA Baseball Title by defeating the Mississauga SW Twins 17-12 in front of a pretty good crowd at beautiful Labatt Park in London.

The first inning featured some fireworks as SW jumped out of the gates with a quick six runs off of Shane Courtney and reliever Brandon Lindquist. Not phased though, the Thunder answers back with 10 runs of their own off Twins starter Billy Martin and relievers James Byrnes and Kyle Porter.

Tecumseh continued to tack on as they took a 17-8 lead into the 7th inning. Mississauga went down swinging though as they were able to add four runs chasing Lindquist from the game but Eric Carducci entered and shut the door.

Congratulations to Jamie Kell and the whole Tecumseh Thunder organization on another solid run at the eliminations. Also a big congrats to Mississauga Twins on another solid run and punching a ticket to Victoria, BC along with the Thunder later this month. Big shout out to the Etobioke Rangers who had an amazing run through the weekend as well coming up just short of a finals berth. Both teams represented COBA with a ton of class and respect.

Finally a big thank you to the Strathroy Royals and their host committee for putting on this years event. The weather was a bit shaky to start but the venues and hospitality was amazing making for another solid event. Looking forward to it again in 2018.

The 2017 Hap Walters Invitational Tournament Champions – The Etobicoke Rangers

The Etobicoke Rangers captured the Hap Walters Invitational Tournament title on Sunday in Milton with a hard fought 6-5 win over COBA league mates the Niagara Metros. It is their 2nd Hap Walters title with their last coming in 2003 when they defeated the Markham Mariners.

After starting off with a tough loss Friday night 3-2 against the East York Bulldogs, the Rangers ran the table the rest of the way defeating Ilderton (11-1) and Thornhill (6-2) in the round robin. They followed that up with a QF win over the Mississauga SW Twins (6-0) and a SF win over the Bulldogs (2-0) before defeating Niagara in a very entertaining finale.

Congratulations to Steve “Whitey” Brietner and the whole Etobicoke Rangers baseball team on a very good showing during the weekend.


2017 Lakeside Invitational Tournament Information

The Sarnia Braves completed a very impressive weekend in London today as they defeated the Leaside Leafs 5-0 in the championship game of the 2017 Lakeside Invitaional Tourmanent at Dan Pulham Field.

The Braves went 5-0 in the tournament defeating the Oakville A’s, Woodslee Orioles and St Thomas Tomcats in the round robin. After receiving a bye for the playoffs, they followed that up with a semi-final win over the Ilderton Red Army 1-0 before defeating Leaside. What was even more impressive is that Sarnia did not allow a single run in the whole tournament; the first time this feat has ever occurred at this tournament.

Congratulations to Coach James Grant and the whole Sarnia Braves crew on a great weekend of baseball and a very deserving Lakeside Tournament Title.
