NW U16 Division 2016 All Star Game        

 

The NW U16 All Star game was played Sunday afternoon (June 26) in St Clements as part of the Peter Hallman Men’s Premier Fastpitch Tournament. The 20 all stars from our U16 division put on an excellent show for spectators, families and friends as they banged out 23 runs on 16 hits in an 18-5 slugfest. Leading the way with the powerful offensive display were Darcy Mosburger (PDP) with a single, triple and 3 rbis, his PDP teammate Evan Demerest with 3 singles and two rbis. Other big sticks came from Tavi’s Jack Holdsworth (triple, single), Tavi’s Jaris Marriott (2 singles, triple, 1 rbi) and a James Miller (KW Twins) triple.  Belmore’s Mac Mulvey stroked his own triple and an rbi;  Baden’s Scott Carey, Mackenzie Campbell (Stratford) and Tony Tikel (Pushlinch) all had their single bat in a run.  Seven different pitchers were on display;  Mac Mulvey limited the NW hitters to 2 runs on one hit while striking out three in his two innings of work. KW’s James Miller allowed one run on 0 hits with 5 ks in his two  innings. Darcy Mosburger also excelled from the pitching plate allowing only one run on one hit while adding 2 strike outs in his 1.1 innings of work.  And we must mention Cambridge’s Jarred Steckley who came in to pitch in the final inning and quickly ended the game with two quick outs in the only two batters he faced. Despite the emphasis on offence, sparkling individual plays were also made on defence by KW’s Carter McDonald on a second base shallow right field running catch and Stratford’s Quin Lesouder”s roving catches in left field. The official ISC umpires congratulated the the players on their fine efforts, sportsmanship and positive team spirits. The NW is proud of its U16 players and the skill and sportsmanship they displayed on the field this Sunday afternoon.

NW U14 2015 All Star Game        

 

The Visiting All Stars scored two runs in the top of the 7th and then shut down the Home Squad to earn a 9-7 victory in the NW U14 All Star game Saturday afternoon in Tavistock at the Ceth Roth Memorial Tournament.  Jaxon Gilbert (Elma) earned the pitching victory throwing two scoreless innings to start the game and then returning to the pitching plate to throw the bottom of the 7th to earn the save.  Nicky Elbert (Cambridge) and Justin Kleinsasser (Innerkip) also pitched for the Visitors. For the Home Squad Chad Brown (Tavistock) pitched a scoreless first two innings followed by Derek Erb (Elma), Nathan Brookshaw (Stratford), Thomas Baker (KW), and Dylan Hehn (Twin Centre).

 

        The All Stars turned in numerous sparkling defensive plays. The Visitors turned in a slick 6-5-4 double play to end the second inning. Jordan Borth (Belmore) from the shortstop position made a sliding catch on a pop foul to the side fence behind third base to end the first.  Dylan Hehn needed only 4 pitches to record the three Visitor outs in the top of the 6th.  On offence Jordan Borth hit a grand slam home run to deep left in the 4th to go along with another 2 singles to lead the 12 hit Visitors’ attack. Also chipping in with a pair of singles for the Visitors were Jeremy Shumacher (KW), Mark Wilker (Innerkip), Jake Voisin (Twin Centre), and Justin Kleinsasser. Jordan Borth led the Visitors with 5 rbi’s while Justin Kleinsasser knocked in two.  On the Home side of the ball Kayla Sonntag (Cambridge) was on base from every at bat as she earned 4 base on balls.  Chad Brown singled 4 times with an rbi.  Derek Erb had 2 singles and a pair of rbi's; Dylan Hehn stroked a pair of singles in support of the Home Squad’s 13 hit effort.

 

        Thanks to the NW coaching staff of Trevor Hehn (Twin Centre), Bob Hiller (New Hamburg), Scott Brookshaw (Stratford) and Sass Sonntag (Cambridge). Our 20 U14 all stars represented our League very well and did a great job entertaining the fans.  Thanks to the Tavistock Minor Ball Association and the Tournament organizers for inviting our players to showcase their talents in Tavistock.

NW Captures Gold at Eastern Canadians

 

The Ramseyer Earthworks Bantam Boys, Team Ontario 2, brought home the gold medal from St. Perpetue Quebec, host of this year's U-16 Eastern Canadian Softball Championships.  The Athletics went a perfect 5-0 over the 4 days.

 

Tavistock opened the tournament on Thursday with a convincing 7-0 victory over Nova Scotia 1.  Tristan Wilhelm and Jake Wiffen led the attack with 2 hits apiece while Derek Hyde, Justin Wagler, Dylan Brown, Jamieson Hergott and Jake Bauman all reached base safely.  Wagler earned the victory striking out 8 in 5 innings of play.  The Bantams started their second game against Quebec 2 later that day, but with 2 outs in the top of the first the rain took over postponing the game to Friday morning.  The game remained scoreless until the third inning when Tavistock sent 13 batters to the plate taking a commanding 8-0 lead.  The Athletics scored 2 more in the 4th, gave up 4 in the 5th but scored another 2 in the 7th to win 11-4.  Wilhelm went 4 for 5 at the plate, Jackson Hergott and Jamieson Hergott each added 2 hits and single hits going to Wiffen, Jensen van Boekel, Jeremy Kropf, Bryce Yantzi, Trent Jones and Mike Johnson.  Jake Wiffen allowed just 5 hits while striking out 10 on the mound.  The last game of round robin play for Tavistock was against New Brunswick.  The Athletic's bats made short work of this team scoring 6 in the first, 8 in the second and adding one in the 3rd to finish the preliminary round tops in pool B.  Jeremy Kropf earned the win striking out 8 and giving up just one hit and a walk.

 

Team Ontario 1, from Grand Valley finished first in pool A and was the opponent in the undefeated game with the winner earning a berth in the gold medal game.  This was the fifth time these two teams had faced each other this year, with each team winning twice.  Wagler drew a walk in the first and scored on Hyde's RBI to open the game.  Strong pitching and defence on both sides of the diamond was again the highlight of this game.  Grand Valley finally pushed a run across the plate in the 6th inning to tie the game.  Seven innings proved nothing so the International tie breaker rule came into effect with a runner starting at second base in the 8th inning.  With Wagler standing at second, Wilhelm doubled him in then moved to third on a single by Wiffen.  The next two batters were retired before Jamieson Hergott hit a single scoring two to put Tavistock up 4-1.  This game was far from over as Grand Valley scored 2 before the Athletics recorded the third out stranding two Team Ontario 1 runners to win 4-3.  Wagler struck out 9 during the 8 innings of play.

Team New Foundland & Labrador defeated ON 1 in the semi-final to face Tavistock in the final game of the tournament.  As expected a very tight defensive game was in store.  With two outs in the fourth inning Brown worked a walk, moved to second on a passed ball then scored on Jamieson Hergott's single.  New Foundland's lead-off batter opened with a single in the sixth inning and eventually scored tying the game at 1.  With the scored still tied, the home team Tavistock Athletics came to bat in the bottom of the seventh.  Jeremy Kropf opened with a walk, moved to second on a passed ball before Mike Johnson singled leaving runners on first and third.  The next batter was retired bringing Wilhelm to the plate.  With two strikes, Wilhelm hit a single to left bringing home Kropf and the gold medal for Tavistock.  Wagler pitched the final game of the tournament striking out 11 earning him the tournament MVP award.

NW Grads Selected to Team Canada !

 

        Three former NW players have made it to the very top of Canadian Mens Softball as they have been selected to join the Team Canada team roster.  Team Canada will next play at the Pan-AM games in Mexico slated for later next month  (November).  Brandon Horn, (Waterloo Minor Twins NW 1994 - 2003 ) a slick infielder and great stick at the top of the order is fresh off a Senior Men's National Championship with the KW Twins this past August in Owen Sound. Ben Wideman, (Elmira Laser Video NW 1996 - 2005) a speedy outfielder and top leadoff batter recently participated in the Men's Nationals with the Owen Sound Selects. Ryan French, (New Dundee Reds NW 1997- 2001) known for his deceptive change up throws for the Kitchener Cubs in the South Perth League. He will join Team Canada's staff that also includes their ace pitcher, our very own Don Scott from Sebringville.

 

        Congratulations to these three former NW ballplayers. They did a great job playing in our North Waterloo parks and now they have made it to the top of the fastball ladder. It just shows we may have a player (or two!) on our NW rosters that may one day in the future wear the red maple leaf for Team Canada.

NW Top Provincial Pitchers!

 

        The NWRMSL has some of the finest windmill pitchers in the province. At the recent OASA Provincial Elimination Tournaments both the Peewee and Bantam top pitching awards went to NW hurlers. Hard throwing right hander, Tyler Randerson of the New Hamburg Heat received the OA Ron Taylor Peewee Pitching Award as he led his staff with four tournament victories, striking out 49 batters and allowing only five walks in 36 innings pitched. KW Kolt Bantam stalwart, Johnny Baker was creditied with three victories with 26 innings of work while striking out 32 batters and allowing no walks in earning the Gil Read Bantam Award. Andrew Pearn of the Fullarton A's won two games at the OA Midget Elims and has been picked up by the Oshawa Double B Pops to compete in the Midget Nationals in New Brunswick in August.  Greg Hammel of the New Hamburg Heat will be assisting the pitching staff of the Stratford Memorials as they compete in Fredericton at the Midget Nationals in August.  Visiting our local NW parks you can spot a number of Mite and Squirt pitchers that look to be developing into frontline hurlers in the near future as well. Credit must go out to the dedicated pitchers, their coaches and our league who all help to foster their growth and rise to stardom.

         Keep an eye out for some great pitching battles coming to our NW Championship weekend in Stratford, July 29-31 when all 31 NW minor teams will compete in double knock out tournaments to declare 2011 Divisional Champions.

NWRMSL Players Receive QUEST for GOLD Awards!

 

        Two players from the Kitchener-Waterloo 2010 Midget Twins have been selected by the OASA to participate in Ontario's Quest for Gold program in the field of men's fastball.  Corey Way and Brendan Roach will receive funding and training through this program which helps prepare Ontario athletes for national and international competitions in their sport.  Corey and Brendan were picked up by the Walkerton Wild and helped them to win the Midget Canadian National Championship this past summer.  Both players completed their minor fastball careers in 2010. Both plan to continue playing locally with Kitchener Mens Fastball clubs this upcoming summer as well as now being members of the 15 player Ontario Quest for Gold 2011 effort.   Congratulations go out to Corey and Brendan!

 


 

 

NWRMSL Year in Review - 2010

 

        In 2010 the NW fielded 38 minor teams. Division championships were won by Kitchener-Waterloo (Midget), Elmira (Bantam), Tavistock (Peewee) and Wellesley (Squirt). North Waterloo teams also proved successful at the OASA and ORSA championships as well as the Eastern Canadians and the Ontario Summer games. And of course our Stratford Memorials earned Silver at the Midge Nationals.

 

        Moving to 2011 we hope for another competitive summer of fastball in our region. It is hoped that the Perth and NW communities can continue to work together to provide these fastball opportunities. Efforts will be made to get the NW Mite division back into the fold. A review of yearend tournament sites and policy/formats need be undertaken. As well a study of league fees/tournament fees will be reviewed.

 

        I trust our softball people will enjoy a prosperous and enjoyable offseason. I look forward to working with you again come the spring.

 

Yours in fastball,

Bruce

NWRMSL president
