Dorchester Baseball Thriving
Submitted By administrator on Tuesday, November 8, 2016
With the 2016 season behind us, we can look back and reflect on so many positives that we experienced as an organization.  Registration was record setting this year and with the Toronto Blue Jays having another successful year we hope the trend of increased young players continues.  Not only did we have success at the house league levels but all of our rep and select teams competed at the highest level with many of those teams winning tournaments and other great finishes.

How strong is our program?  Not only did over 250 players compete and represent our community but we have others playing outside our community.  We had over 14 players on the London Badger teams, we had Dorchester players playing rep on other London and Ingersoll rep teams where we did not have enough players to make a full rep team, we also had players playing for the Ontario Nationals, Thames Valley Tigers, Ontario Expos and of course the Great Lake Canadians (run by our very own Chris Robinson out of our Field of Dreams).

We are producing some of the best players in the area and we are creating a place for every child to play baseball and have fun in town.  If anyone is looking to improve in the off season Dorchester has always encouraged players to experience the atmosphere and coaching at Centerfield Sports in London (Chris Robinson is an instructor there).  For those looking for wood bats for the older players I recommend Dorchester’s very own Baseline Bats.  The picture included with this article is of David Mendham and Chris Robinson at the tournament 12 in Toronto at the Rogers Centre.  Chris coached one of the teams and David played on another, this tournament is put on by Roberto Alomar and show cases the best young players in Canada.  Congratulations to the both of you, we are proud of how well you represent Dorchester and it shows our local athletes that our program can help develop some great players right here.

How do we as an association continue to improve and produce players of this caliber.  It is through educating our coaches and strengthening our executive so please volunteer for next season. To our coaches from this past season, on behalf of the executive, I want to thank you for stepping up and getting involved, without you all the great things that are happening within our association are not possible.  Also, we would like to thank your coaching staff and all of your team volunteers, when everyone does a little we can accomplish a lot.  We will need more people to step up and help out the executive for the upcoming season, we need fresh ideas and more people so if you are interested please email me ([email protected]) and I can help you get started.  Last but not least, we would like to thank the parents for representing our association and our community with class and respect for everyone involved.
