Dodgers Clinch 2007 Championship
September 18 , 2007: The High Park T-Ball diamond was a busy and exciting place in the first two weeks of September. The ten house league teams played 28 games in 15 days to determine the league champions for 2007. Each team played at least four playoff games, but in the end it was the Dodgers who defeated the Giants to claim this year's championship trophy.
Weekend Filled With Playoff Excitement!
September 16, 2007: It began Friday night with a game that determined the matchups for Saturday. On Saturday 8 teams played quarter final matches with the winners advancing to the semifinal games on Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon, only two teams remained in contention for the championship of High Park T-Ball.
The weekend was full of excitement. The outfielders surprised hitters by catching fly balls. Two teams turned triple plays to snuff out rallies. Infielders made diving catches and perfect throws to keep the scores low. Yet despite the great defense many runners beat out infield hits, others drove line drives throught the infield, and several players scored inside the park home runs.

High Park Tops at Silver Tee Tournament
August 13, 2007: The High Park T-Ball All-Stars travelled to Windsor on the weekend of August 10th to 12th to participate in the annual Silver Tee Tournament hosted by LaSalle Turtle Club. On Sunday morning, the Braves lost by one run to Windsor South Canadians, but on Sunday afternoon they bounced back to win their third tournament championship of the 2007 season. Congratulations Braves, for a great season! And thanks to the organizers for a job well done once again.
August 6, 2007: Although High Park teams have won the Ancaster World T-Ball championship ten times in the past fifteen years, every year a new group of eight-year-old players has to face their own challenges. On Civic Holiday Monday, the High Park T-Ball Braves faced a strong Windsor South Canadians team in the final game of the 2007 Ancaster tournament.
After four innings of well-played, exciting T-Ball, Windsor held a one-run lead going into the fifth. With the game on the line, the Braves defense came to life and held the Canadians to just 2 runs in the top of the inning. In the bottom of the inning the first three batters reached base safely, but only two scored, as Windsor players caught a fly ball and a line drive. Then, with a runner on third, a High Park single scored the tying run, and a hit to deep centre field brought High Park its second championship in two years.
Thanks again to the wonderful volunteers at Ancaster who make the World T-Ball Tournament possible.
August 6, 2007: While the High Park All-Stars were playing for the tournament championship, the High Park Selects were playing for the AAA division title against a team from Windsor West. After losing their first two games on Saturday, the Selects won two out of three on Sunday, and finally prevailed in Monday's game to become the Ancaster AAA champions. This may be the first time that High Park teams have won both the Major division and the AAA division in the same year.
