RSPA League Not Affected by New Covid Limits

NEW LIMITS ANNOUNCED FOR PEEL REGION: They have announced reducing the size of allowed gatherings to 25.
BUT on the CP24 website it states this: "The new restrictions also won't apply in parks, sports fields or places of worship provided existing mandated physical distancing measures are maintained." If we all continue to do our part and social distance, wear masks when necessary, wash our hands often and USE COMMON SENSE, it will help reduce the spread of the Covid virus. If the city of Mississauga advises me differently. I will let you know, but as of now, the RSPA scheduile is NOT affected.

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.

RSPA All-Star Night & Barbecue - Friday, July 12, 2019

Updated July 14, 2019.
  • The RSPA 2019 All-Star Night & Barbecue was held on Friday, July 12 at Paul Coffey Park.
  • Anybody who did not attend this event is crazy. Anybody who attended 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.
  • Krista and umpire RichardP and Ian manned the barbecues. We missed Mario and his special basil sprinkled tomatoes.
  • Home run contest (male & female), base running (male & female), pitching contest, outfield throwing, games, draws, etc.
  • Mens home run contest: EricV from Bonecrushers started out strong with 4 dingers in the first round but fell apart in the eliminations. Junior from Ruff Riders came on strong to win the event. Amit from Free Agents was second and Chad from Wrecking Crew was third.
  • Ladies home run: CORRECTION: Michelle from Honey Badgers beat out Cassie from Shark Fionns to win.
  • Mens baserunning: Ethan from Loaded Bases won with a time of 12.47 seconds, Junior from Ruff Riders secone 12.72,
    Ryan from I'd Hit That 12.76, Davian from Wrecking Crew 12.89.
  • Ladies baserunning: Lilian from Blaze Jays finally won because Leah took a year off.
  • Pitching: Danny from Honey Badgers won the pitching competition.
  • Outfield throwing: Tuan from Last Assassins won.
  • Deby Alvia from Massive Hits won $435 in the 50-50 draw and donated $100 back to the Kidney Foundation.
  • We raised $2579.90 (no dog tag this year) from the events and donations, $720 just from the male home-run contest, $435 from the 50-50 draw, $485 from the bat draw, won by ???. The league will round it up to donate $3000 to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
  • REMEMBER: We are also looking for donations to the Kidney Walk which will be held in September.
    I would like to see every team make at least a small donation.
  • The All-Star Night this year was a fund-raiser for Owen Dakins (son of Mike Dakins, Last Call) and the Kidney Foundation
    donating $3000 (not that we are forgetting Chris Allen and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.)
  • 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 umpire RichardP and IanB on the barbecues, TerryJ doing his usual, anything that could be done from the comfort of his chair, EdG running all the events, Robbo and BriPie manning the beverages, Margine and Irene stepping in wherever needed, and all the people who stepped in to run and judge the events, etc.
  • Photos are posted. PLEASE SEND ME ANY PHOTOS YOU HAVE OF ALL-STAR NIGHT.
