Annual Slo-Pitch Meeting 2019

C’mon out to our Annual Spring Slo-Pitch Meeting.   Thursday, April 25th at 11:00 am at the Serbian Centre on Tecumseh Rd.
Meet your WECSSO Executive, your manager, and fellow players.  Hear what is new for this year and get answers to any questions you may have.  National Sport Team  Partnerships cards will be handed out to players wanting to purchase equipment in preparation for the season.
The season starts Monday, May 6th for Red and Green; and Tuesday, May 7th for Blue.
 The Green Division is in need of players. A lot have retired from ball and the WECSSO executive would still like this division to be a viable one by putting 4 teams together.
Hope to see you there.
WECSSO Executive

Thanks to all the teams for agreeing to play two seven inning games to finish the season. The unfortunate part is that by extending the season some teams lost players due to previous commitments. As a league I think that we have to address this and prevent from happening in the future.

Green Division Playoffs

The weather cooperate today, Monday, September 24th, with cooler temperatures and clouds to help make it a good day to play. Both teams showed good defense as the score after 5 innings was tied up at 5 . The Muskateers then showed that the bottom of the lineup could produce some runs. With 2 out and bases loaded they hit and hit and hit, scoring 3 runs . Each inning after that they added a few more runs to take a 7 run lead into the 9th. The Archaics scored a few but the defense was too much for them. The final score was Muskateers 18, Archaics 11.  Congratulations to the both of teams for a great game but the champions were not to be denied . Congratulations to John and his teammates for their win . They are the Green Division champs for 2018 . Thanks to the fans who came out to see the game and many thanks to the umpires and all the other players in the league . See you at the banquet October 16. Doors open at 3 30.

Thanks Dan and Mike

P.S. There were a lot of injured players this year and we hope they can all return next season, as it would make the division much better.
