AFMTournament2015logoThe Adam Fedoruk Memorial CAN/AM Torunament was established in 1999 as a lasting tribute to Adam Fedoruk.  Adam was a player in Oakville Little League and absolutely loved baseball.

The Fedoruks' were a true baseball family; Adam's dad not only sponsored the team, he was also their pitching coach, and while his mom typically kept the score sheets, his little sister Amanda cheered the team on from the bleachers. As a player Adam had two favourite positions - shortstop and pitcher, but he excelled in all aspects and his coaches were always impressed with his 'thinking game'. We all have memories of Adam, grinning ear to ear, always encouraging and always giving it his all.

Tragically, Adam died suddenly, along with his sister and mother, in a house fire on August 17, 1998. That year Adam's team was set to play their championship game and as difficult as it was to go on the field without him, the team did the only thing they could do, they played for Adam. This tournament is a celebration of all that this young player embodied; characteristics typically found in the young people who play in Little League - dedication, sportsmanship, teamwork and fair play.

And so, we invite you to take the field with us - play for fun, play for the love of the game, and play for Adam.
