Rookie Ball 2014

All four teams celebrate the end of Rookie Ball season, with champions Limberwin in front in blue.

Although the air was chilly for August, the rain held off, and we were able to hold our final game of the 2014 Rookie Ball season at Labatt Park, where “Limberwin” and “Buron” competed for the championship.

Every summer LMHC offers a baseball program for children eight to ten years old who live in our family communities. Officers from London Police Service coach our teams, and pitchers from London Majors Baseball pitch all our games.

After the game, everyone celebrated with pizza from Joe Kool’s restaurant, and thanked our other Rookie Ball sponsors: Lang Bus Lines (they drive the players to all their games), the Optimists, and Forest City Youth Slow-Pitch.

Congratulations to the Limberwin team, who came in first place, and to all the players for their great effort and dedication during the summer!
