RSPA All-Star Night & Barbecue - Friday, July 20, 2018

  • The RSPA 2018 All-Star Night & Barbecue was held on Friday, July 20 at Paul Coffey Park.
  • Anybody who did not attend this event is crazy. Ask anybody who attended, they will tell you what a fun night it was!
    Also, this event was subsidized by league fees, so if you didn't come out, you aren't getting your money's worth!
  • FREE BARBECUE, amazing hamburgers and 3 different kinds of sausages, free beverages, etc. Umpires Mario and Henry, Ian and even the Newf manned the barbecues and Mario brought his special basil sprinkled tomatoes.
  • Home run contest (male & female), base running (male & female), pitching contest, outfield throwing, games, draws, etc.
  • We raised $1703.50 (and a dog tag). This event is dedicated to Chris Allen, a fund-raiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
  • Matt Wilson for Tiger Balmers won the male home run contest, which just goes to show anybody can win.
    It's consistency, not power to hit a ball out of a 250 foot park. There was a 7-way tie for second place. Danny from Honey Badgers and Greg from Looseballs-Tue had a great first round but choked in the finals.
  • Sarah Manson won the female homerun contest. There was a 3-way tie for second place - ChristinaV from Master Batters, Chantal from QHDP and M..**??-kjgfkhgdklj (can't read that writing) in second place.
  • Justin Lim from Etobicoke Trolley Dodgers won mens baserunning with Oscar from Kekambas 2nd and JasonK from Hardcore in third (who wants a masters division for baserunning).
  • Leah from god knows how many teams won AGAIN with Lilian from Blaze Jays in second.
    (Where were you Noni, I thought you were fast?)
  • Melanie from Looseballs-Tue won female throwing, with MichelleR from Honey Badgers in second place.
  • Mitch Husband from Kekambas won male throwing with Dave Lyman from Thunder in second.
  • Ralph from Aceholes won the pitching contest with Joseph from Sweet Spot in second (and Lisa Rose would have won best female oitcher, but it was combined).
  • The RSPA All-Star Night is a result of a lot of work and cannot be successful without the help we get from the amazing crew of volunteers! KristaC (and even TerryJ and IanB) and specially umpires Mario and Henry, and BrianL, Robbo and BriPie manning the beverages, Margine stepping in wherever needed, and all the people who stepped in to run and judge the events, etc.
