On Saturday June 3rd, the OWBL hosted its first OWBL Classic inviting rookie ball and peewee girls teams to play each other in a full day of baseball in Toronto. Teams from Royal York Baseball League, Toronto Girls Baseball, and Haldimond County Minor Baseball came out to play each other in exhibition games and enjoy some pizza! It was a great day for Girls Baseball and we look forward to hosting this event again!
OWBL’s Toronto Fusion is hosting their third annual Girls’ Day of Baseball Free Clinic! The event is once again generously sponsored by the Etobicoke Baseball Association, Royal York Baseball League, and Ontario Women’s Baseball League.
Due to popular demand we’ve had to split it up into two days!
Saturday April 29th 9am-1pm: Girls born in 2007-2010
Sunday April 30th 9am-1pm: Girls born in 2002-2006
While the clinic is free to all girls, we are also offering an optional pizza lunch with fruit ($5) and a clinic t-shirt ($20)
Thank you to our generous sponsors!
