The Oakville Whitecaps are now representing Canada at the Junior World Series

 

Team_Canada

The Oakvlle Whitecaps are now settled in at the Junior League World Series in Taylor Michigan. The team left Lethbridge at the crack of dawn on Thursday and headed to the airport in Calgary via a team bus. The team were then flown by Little League Canada to Windsor Ontario where they were met by a staff of Little League officials and were escorted to Taylor Michigan to begin their amazing experience at the Junior League World Series. Activities for the first few days included getting situated in their hotel rooms, meeting with Little League officials to get their Team Canada uniforms. That was followed by the traditional Opening Cermonies which from all reports were fantastic. 

 

The team you see above are now prepared to take on the rest of the world for the right to get to the finals against the winner of the United States pool and the ultimate goal of winning the Junior League World Series.

The team motto has been and will continue to be:

One Team, One Goal, One Dream

 

 

Update from Taylor, Michigan
Hello everybody we are still living the dream
One Team
One Goal
One Dream
Team Canada
We arrived in Taylor, Michigan about 5:30pm on Friday.  The journey began about 4:30am when we boarded a bus from Lethbridge to Calgary where we got on a flight to Windsor.  Upon arriving in Windsor we got on a bus headed to Taylor, Michigan.
Once arriving at the hotel we were shuttled to the park for a barbecue and tour of the facility.  I know that it is not Williamsport but you knew that as soon as you got off the shuttle you were entering a Little League Shrine.  Everything you could imagine to be Little League is in this little gem of a park.  The completely enclosed ball park.  The dugouts underneath the building housing the announcers, score keepers and umpires rooms.  This is Little League. this is amazing.
Well it was time to start to focus on our first game against Puerto Rico.  I had to keep pinching myself, Puerto Rico, Czech Republic, Panama and Chinese Thai Pei.  We had two of our top pitchers unavailable to pitch so we turned to Nick Jaeggin for the first assignment against Puerto Rico.  The first inning was a tuff one not only for Nick but the whole team.  The fans for Puerto Rico were having a fiesta in the stands.  The drums, cow bells and morrocos were thundering.  The Puerto Ricon bench were chanting loud and proud.  Before we knew it we were down by 10 runs.  It really was nobody's fault, it's just we were overwhelmed.  We settled down after the first inning and lost by a score of 11 - 3.  We certainly were able to play with them.
The second day we played the Czech Republic.  We got off to a good start.  Brian Bowman was strong on the mound for us a we had a 6 - 1 lead after 4 innings. In 5th inning we gave up 3 runs so we made a pitching change and got out of the inning.  In the 6th inning it was starting to show that the team was really scuffling out there.  The Czech team who looked well rested came out strong against us and we just could not fight them off eventually loosing 11 -6
Today we have a well deserved day off.  We spent the morning watching the two top teams in the International pool, Chinese Thai Pei vs Puerto Rico.  This game was unbelievable.  Even those Chinese Thai Pei won convincingly, it featured 7 home runs.  The Chinese Thai Pei player set the distance record  for a home run at the Junior League World Championships.  This was a majestic shot, it was measured at 410 feet.  Yes that is correct 410 feet.  It was followed up by a team mate going to the opposite field for 355ft.  What a show!!
Tomorrow at 11:00 we face Panama.  More to come tomorrow.
Update from Taylor, Michigan

Team Canada are still living the dream!!!

The team arrived in Taylor, Michigan about 5:30pm on Friday.  The journey began about 4:30am when they boarded a bus from Lethbridge to Calgary where they got on a flight to Windsor.  Upon arriving in Windsor the team got on a bus headed to Taylor, Michigan.

Everything you could imagine to be Little League is in this little gem of a park.  The completely enclosed ball park.  The dugouts underneath the building housing the announcers, score keepers and umpires rooms.  This is Little League which is amazing.

Well it was time to start to focus on the first game against Puerto Rico.  The team had not grasped the idea that they were one of the top 10 teams in the world to get to the Junior League World Series. This team was about to take on the likes off Puerto Rico, Czech Republic, Panama and Chinese Thai Pei.  

Team Canada had two of their top pitchers unavailable to pitch so they turned to Nick Jaeggin for the first assignment against Puerto Rico.

The first inning was a tough one not only for Nick but the whole team.  The fans for Puerto Rico were having a fiesta in the stands.  The drums, cow bells and morrocos were thundering.  The Puerto Ricon bench were chanting loud and proud.  

Before  you could bat an eye, Team canada was down by 10 runs.  It really was nobody's fault, it's just so overwhelming fo rthe team. The finally settled down after the first inning and lost by a score of 11 - 3.  Team canada showed the world that they could in fact compete with these teams from around the world..

The second day saw Team Canada taking on the Czech Republic.  Team canada jumped out to a good start.  Brian Bowman was strong on the mound and they lead 6 - 1 lead after 4 innings. In 5th inning they gave up 3 runs causing them to make a pitching change and with thayt change, the worked their way out of the inning.  

In the 6th inning it was starting to show that the team was really scuffling out there.  The Czech team who looked well rested came out strong and Team Canada just could not fight them off eventually losing 11 -6.

Tuesday, Team Canada had a well deserved day off.  They spent the morning watching the two top teams in the International pool, Chinese Thai Pei vs Puerto Rico.  This game was unbelievable.  Even those Chinese Thai Pei won convincingly, it featured 7 home runs.  The Chinese Thai Pei player set the distance record  for a home run at the Junior League World Championships.

This was a majestic shot, it was measured at 410 feet.  Yes that is correct 410 feet.  It was followed up by a team mate going to the opposite field for 355ft.  What a show!!

Wednesday, the team had the early game of the day facing Latin America. Dylan Whittaker was the starting pitcher and faced a strong team with a lot of hitting power. They had one player who knocked three out of the park tying a Junior League World Series record. Team Canada battled hard never giving up both offensively and defensively. The game ended with Latin America winning 13-3. For the record, team Canada has not been mercied in a game. They have fought hard each and every game against these strong International team.

Let's not lose sight that this team is one of ten elite baseball teams that have won in their respective playdowns to get to the World Series. This is an amazing accomplishment. The entire Board of Drectors, the players, coaches and parents of our league are very proud of these kids. The Town of Oakville have also been very proud that this team is not only repreenting the league but the Town of Oakville and Canada as they continue to compete in the Junior League World Series.


Tomorrow at 2:00PM, Team Canada faces Asia Pacific.  More to come tomorrow.

The 14U Oakville Whitecaps are making a run at the Junior Canadians in Lethbridge Alberta with an eye on the Junior Little League World Series later this month in Taylor Michigan.
The Whitecaps started out the tournament season with one objective in mind and that was to advance to the World Series. The team had a strong start of tournament season with wins
in a number of local tournaments. The team entered the Provincials in Orleans Ontario looking for a little beter competition than they had experienced early in the season. The Whitecaps played
well during the Provincials and made it ot the finals where they were matchd up against the east Nepean Eagles. The Whitecaps captured the 2015 Junior Provincial Championship with a big win over the Eagles.
They team returned home for a few days to prepare for Lethbridge Alberta and the 2015 Junior Canadians Championship. The team faced BC in game one and lost a heart breaker 2-1 to BC on a seventh inning winning
single after BC advanced a runner ot third base. The pitching on both sides was outstanding which led to the low scoring game.
Oakville came out flying in the remaining five round robin games by beating Quebec, Alberta, Atlantic, Lethbridge and Saskatchewan setting uo for a semi-final game which will take place tomorrow with the winners
of the semi-finals advancing to the Championship game on Thursday.
Cheer on our 14U Whitecaps as they try to get to the World Series in Taylor Michigan.
