"A Leaside tradition since 1968"
Sept 4- For the second time in
three years the Leaside Leafs won
the regular season pennant
edging their geographical rival East York by two points. The Leafs finished the season 18-8 scoring an impressive 247 runs.
In the GTBL final four tournament the Leafs unfortunately could not follow their regular season success as they went 0-2 losing to Pickering 5-1 and East York in an entertaining game 5-4. Congrats to the Thornhill Reds on winning the 2016 GTBL Title.
Jul 19- The Leafs extended their
winning streak to four while halting
the Bulldogs impressive winning
streak at 18 with a 6-1 victory last night. Jorge Frugoni went the distance to pick up the win as he scattered seven hits and only allowed the leadoff man to reach in one inning. On the offensive side, Adam Campbell made his presence felt as he delivered a decisive two run blast in the middle innings to put the Leafs up for good. As well for the Leafs, Travis Skelton drove in two runs and Jeff Gruchy picked up another hit. The Leafs are back in action this Thursday night against the Newmarket Hawks at Talbot Park. Plenty of good seats available, first pitch is 7:30 pm.

Sept. 4- First year player Averey
Bet-Payumo capped off a terrific
rookie season by capturing the
GTBL Rookie of the Year and GTBL Hitter of the Year Awards. The Leafs third basemen hit .392, swatted 5 HR and drove in 43 rbi's in 34 games. Averey was also named to the GTBL's first team all stars..
The only other Leaf player to earn league recognition was first basemen Jeff Gruchy who for the second season in a row was named to the GTBL's second team all stars. Over the past season Jeff Gruchy hit .348 with 19 rbi's.
Jul 22- The Leafs scored early and
often last night as they plated 15 in
the first three innings to defeat the
Newmarket Hawks 15-3. With the sticks Dyer Boyne hit his second of the year, a shot that rolled into the little diamond at Talbot. Also, newcomer Jamie Lekas hit his first as a Leafs, a grand slam down the left field line. The Leafs this year have 18 HR's from 11 different batters in only 27 games. On the hill rookie Francis Toribio collected his fourth win of the season working six strong innings. The final frame was worked by the ageless Garrett Gilroy who recorded a strike out and an assist. With the win the Leafs are now in first place and look to extend that lead as they travel to Bolton on Sunday, first pitch 7:00pm.
