While the regular season took a pause, Dunbar baseball was very successful this past May Long Weekend with championship wins in the Stong’s, DQ 8s and Jericho 9s Tournaments! Way to go Dunbar!
Dunbar has some exciting events planned for this coming weekend. To celebrate a baseball tradition, all Majors games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday May 6 to 8 will use wood bats only. Players are excited for this retro experience.
Don’t forget that Saturday May 7 is photo day. Click for the full schedule: Dunbar Little League Photo Schedule 2016
And last but not least, Sunday May 8 is Mother’s Day. As has become a Dunbar tradition, we will be serving a Mother’s Day treat from concession. So all moms (and grandmas) are welcome to come by during the day. New this year, the rule is “no moms in the honey hut.” There will be dads only in there all day. On behalf of Dunbar Baseball, thank you to all our moms!
9:30 – 9:45 AM Teams gather in full uniform outside the Majors field fence, several “herders” will help coordinate the teams running on to the field. There will be signs where teams will line up. The parents should leave their player with their teams and move away from the staging area and find a spot to watch the opening ceremony.
For families new to baseball, this is an exciting event. We start by introducing the Majors teams and then work our way to Blastball. Players run onto the field led by their coaches and are welcomed by cheers from the crowd and high fives from our Majors players.
11:00 AM Games Start in all divisions and the concession is OPEN! PLAY BALL!!!
Opening ceremonies will proceed rain, shine or snow (yes it happened one year).
Thank you to all the families who came out in droves on work day April 2nd to once again help make our park looking great and ready for the season. Dunbar Baseball is the best community league in Canada because all we have to do is ask and people show up, because you care and are passionate about baseball and this community.
