Junior Rookie Hardball

Bradford teams finished third and second in this division.

Bradford Lions Club played hard all season and had a great tournament and took third overall.

Chris Davies Re/Max pulled came together and made IMBA4 work harder than ever during the final two games of the tournament, but ultimately lost 10-7 and took home the silver medal.

Re/Max tournament highlights include Eli S. making an amazing pop-fly catch at third and throwing it to Jason F. at first for a double play.

Cole M. also made a throw from his knees to Emmett C. who dove to second for the out.

Carron Farms and the Green Team both finished strong and had great seasons!

A HUGE thank you to all of the coaches, team helpers, parents, and sponsors for making this a great season!

Bantam Hardball

Bradford No. 2 beat Bradford No. 1 12-7.

Alex S. needed only 45 pitches to retire nine opposing batters.

Alex and Christian got on base for all three of their turns at bat, giving the offence a boost. A very strong defensive game with catcher Davonte throwing out base runners stealing home twice on past balls, also a runner stealing second and third!

The next night, Bradford No. 2 beat Bradford No. 1 in a close 9-6 game.

Aggressive base running and taking advantage of a couple misplays may have been the difference in this game.

A closely fought contest saw Nathan P. throw some consistent strikes for most of his innings. Once again, a big thanks goes to Alex and Seth for jumping up a division from Peewee to help seal the win.

Mite Softball

The Bradford Jets Hockey Club played hard in a 14-7 loss to EG. The Jets players came together in all aspects of the game. Olivia.H. recorded her first hit of the season!

Bradford Home Hardware played two nail-biters, losing to EG Foodland 10-9 and to Robert Ratusny Law 7-6.

Shoutouts to Claire B. for excellent defensive play at first base, to Dillon for shut-down pitching, and to Jessica for always showing great hustle.
