Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire. "
It's been a good week for fastball on a variety of levels.
The Grey Bruce Ladies Fastball League commenced this week with games at Desboro, Tara, Meaford & Allenford.
The Ladies will play 3 nights a week from now through late July and then go to their playoff tournament format in August.
Meanwhile, the Owen Sound Men's Fastball League is scheduled to begin next week with 4 games set for Duncan McLellan Park on Wednesday night.
In between, the Owen Sound Junior Selects are set to be in Innerkip this weekend for a tournament with a pair of games on Saturday plus a Sunday game & then the playoff round.
The Junior Selects also announced this week that they will be hosting the touring New Zealand Under 19 squad in a doubleheader at Duncan McLellan Park on June 26th.
The New Zealanders will be weaving their way out west for the World Under 19 Tournament which is being hosted at Prince Albert this Summer.
And one final fastball note, the Ontario Amateur Midget Championship Tournament will be in Owen Sound July 28th & 29th.
A year from now, the Canadian Midget Fastball Championship Tournament will be staged in Owen Sound.
Have a great long weekend.
I'm Fred Wallace
