RSPA 2019 Slo-Pitch Tournaments

We had great fun with the RSPA slo-pitch tournaments in 2019 even though the weather did not always cooperate.
The May tournament was completely rained out and the city cancelled the permits before it even started.
August tournament with 60 teams started out in the rain and mud and finished up on Sunday with a great day for ball!
Tournaments in June and two tournaments in July and two tournaments in September had great weather. And rain or shine it was always a great party after the tournament at the Irish Shebeen Pub with karaoke from Sharon and torontokaraoke.ca.
Here are some of the pictures from the 2019 RSPA slo-pitch tournaments.
