    no surprise here that Canada won ! there is some huge Talent and tools in the line-up .In fact, the Canadian Baseball program has developed quicker than i though it could…some great talent and Kids up there now! The Bonus here is that most Canadian kids have a common denominator,if I may generalize – a ‘grit factor’that is not to be underestimated, that is a bonus for any team …if a coach knows how to harness it ! almost a mean streak from my observations. Most Canadian players are missunderstood in my opinon.Their polite kids by culture , but complex at the same time… good in pitching mound brawls too and Yapping if provoked. I gather the hockey roots pays off.

    Some great pictures by the way! Very nice action shots – wish I was good with the Camera like this !

      I will say it surprised me how “easily” the Canadians handled this college summer league team….I will try to throw up some thoughts either today or tomorrow. Grit? Absolutely…and I thought the Canadiens kids played a terrible game on defense with mental errors on dropped fly balls, foul outs and a line drive!
      The pics were alright but the game had very little action and not many chances to get great pics at the game!
