"A Leaside tradition since 1968"


                        Sep 1- The Leafs managed to 

                        force a deciding game three in

                        their series with Pickering as they defeated the Red Sox 10-4 at Talbot Park last night. Jorge Frugoni earned the win as he worked 5 2/3 innings of relief of starter Chris Goodale. On the offensive side of the ball rookie Noah Koffman picked up three hits for the second night in a row while leadoff batter Nick Manokarakis banged out two hits with a stolen base. In the field the Leafs played solid defence as Travis Skelton tracked down and took away a double in the fourth when the Red Sox were threatening as well as Lee Mosbaugh completing the rare 9-3 putout. Leafs also turned three double plays during the night. Game three goes Tuesday in Pickering. 7:30 start. 


The Leaside Leafs are sponsored by the

                     Aug 31- The GTBL Awards

                     were announced this week 

                    for the fourth time in five years 

                    a Leaside player has brought home the Rookie of the Year Award. This year's recipient was Noah Koffman. The young infielder had an outstanding season for the Leafs as he posted a .410 average and drove in 33 rbi's from the two hole. Noah also played fantastic defence for the Leafs many several highlight reel plays. He was also selected as the starting third basemen on the GTBL 1st All Star Team. Jeremy Hopkins was the only other award winner this year as he was selected as catcher for the GTBL 2nd All Star Team. 

                     Aug 31- Once again the

                    Leaside Leafs and the 

                    Pickering Red Sox played a

                    back and forth affair with unfortunately the Leafs coming out on the losing end by a score of 9-8. The Leafs couldn't hold on to their 8-6 lead as Pickering pushed three across in the bottom of the 8th. Sean Kavanaugh took the loss despite pitching well in relief of starter Josh Howsam who left in the fourth. On the offensive side of the ball Jamie Lekas and Jeff Gruchy had multiple hit nights and "Big Cat" Adam Morton had an rbi single. Game two goes tonight at Talbot Park, 7:30pm. 

           

 

                Sep 6- The Leafs were cruising in

               game three with a 7-1 lead in the 

               deciding game of their series with Pickering until the bottom of the sixth. The decisive inning saw the Red Sox explode for 10 runs off of 8 hits coupled with three Leafs errors. Once the dust had settled the Leafs had lost 14-9. Jeremiah Sucre started for the Leafs and struck out five through 5.1 innings of work. On the offensive side of the field Roy Suzuki, a junior call up banged out two hits including a double while Jeremy Hopkins had a hit and two rbi's. Leafs next action won't be until 2018. Good luck to Pickering and Thornhill in the 2017 GTBL final.
