Onrtario Falls at World Series
Bayshore News Staff
Tyler Middleton, Ontario Under 17 Squad eliminateds from Mattingly World Series.
The Ontario Blue Jays 17 Under squad has been eliminated from the Don
Mattingly World Series in Port Saint Lucie, Florida.
Although the final was Burkburnett Black (Texas) 7 - OBJ 17 Under 0 the
score was certainly not indicative of the game itself. For the second day
in a row the Jays were involved in a pitchers duel with no score through 4
innings. In fact but for a couple of base runners the first four innings of
the game were three up and three down for both pitchers including Steve
McNeill for the OBJ squad. However in the top of the 5th Burkburnett Black
(Texas) struck first with four runs and never looked back. Victor Milluzi
pitched the final two innings in relief for the OBJ 17 Unders.
Even though the season ends with the team being eliminated from the World
Series it cannot be considered a failure at all. This was the first
Ontario Blue Jays 17 Under team to win 30 games finishing the season with a
record of 30 wins 26 losses. Tyler Middleton from Port Elgin was a pitcher
with the team. Congratulations to coaches Dino Roumel and Lawrence
Cullimore and all the players for the most successful season in the history
of the Ontario Blue Jays 17 Under program.
Tyler Middleton will now join the Saugeen Shores Midget team in their
attempt to win the WOBA Playoffs in Owen Sound on August 10, 11, and 12.
