Historic Evening for Baseball in Peterborough

NOTE:  We post Peterborough Challenger Baseball events on the Kawartha Komets web site as many of our hockey players also signed up for this new league in Peterborough.  They are loving it!


HISTORIC EVENT:

Tonight was an historic evening for baseball in Peterborough. It was the first time that a PBA (Peterborough Baseball Association) team and a special needs baseball team had been on the field together here in Peterborough. 

The Peterborough Senior Rookie Tigers, fresh from winning the Clarington Classic International Tournament on the weekend (they were 5-0), joined the Peterborough Challenger Baseball players at Turner Park, serving as buddies to our players. It was heartwarming and tear jerking at the same time. Watching the young Tigers ballplayers encourage the Challenger players, walking with them to their positions in the field and running the bases with them was an incredible experience. 

Longtime local sports announcer and a great athlete himself, Gary Dalliday, was on hand and loved what he saw. 

This was week # 5 for Peterborough Challenger Baseball, an unforgettable and historic evening for everyone present...and there was a big crowd on hand.

An incredible experience for both ballplayers!

Come on out next Wednesday to enjoy a great ballgame.

  1. If you are a baseball player that is looking to perform and perform well then you have got to build some freakish core strength! Having a strong core center is an absolute MUST if you are a baseball player and this is why you need to take your batting helmet off long enough to read this article my friend.

  2. Some baseball players have had their dreams come true and did not seem to do anything out of the ordinary to become a professional baseball player. My website

  3. That is not all terrible, perhaps fascinating, but rather hold up until the point when you at long last land at the polished ash segment.axialsports.com
