Baseball Canada Women’s Invitational National Championships
Hosted By North York Baseball, Bond Park Toronto Ontario, July 21-25 2010
Updated schedule and format and rosters
We had to modify the schedule following Team West decision to not attend the event. The tournament is now a full round robin (5 games per team) with the top 2 teams playing for gold medal game and Teams 3 and 4 playing for bronze. Teams 5 and 6 will play for position. For your information, rosters are due to Baseball Canada today.
Meeting is scheduled to happen on Wednesday the 21st at 9pm at Seneca College. Please go to 4th floor where a small meeting room will be set up for us. 1 or 2 reps per team are welcome to the meeting only. This is a technical meeting for the event so there is no need for your players to attend.
