North London is proud to announce that our Minor Bantam Nationals took 2nd place – 2015 Finalists – in the Major Bantam LDBA Playoffs. Heading into Sunday morning our Nats faced a well rested Ilderton team and needed a win to push the series into a 3 team draw to advance to the finals. Luck was with Ilderton who advanced on the draw and this staged a rematch between arch rival Tillsonburg. The Nats dug deep and defeated Tillsonburg setting up a rematch of the morning against Tillsonburg. In the heat of a Sunday afternoon our Nationals playing their 3rd game of the day battled with all their might against a rested Ilderton. Keeping in mind that the majority of the Ilderton team is one year older than our minor Nationals the boys and coaches in traditional Nationals pride and spirit battled to the last pîtch. We are proud of this team and wish them the very best this weekend as we and they host the Baseball Ontario AA Minor Bantam Provincial Championships. Thanks to Steve Groves and Coach Howard for their assistance this past weekend in convening an exciting LDBA Championship.
This weekend is the Major Division LDBA Playoffs. We wish all teams the greatest success and we will report updates as they are received.
