Congratulations to the Ontario Nationals for winning the 2011 Adam Fedoruk Memorial CANAM Tournament. The Ontario Nationals defeated the host team, the Oakville Whitecaps 12U team in the finals on Sunday afternoon. The tournament was highlighted by a special ceremony in memory of Adam and an announcement that Oakville Little League has started a Post Secondary Grant in Adam's memory. The grant will go to a player in the league based on a pre-determined set of criteria and conditions which will be determined over the coming months and published on the web site. The lucky recipient will be presented with this award by Mr Fedoruk at the annual Adam Fedoruk CANAM Memorial Tournament every year.

Mr Fedoruk and Adam's Grandmother were in attendance at the Championship Final. Mr Fedoruk presented the championship trophy to the Ontario Nationals.

The 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. 

In the past, the tournament has drawn teams from Ontario, New York and Michigan. Many teams return on an annual basis. This tournament is for teams with players 12-years old or 11 years old. 

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.

To run a tournament of this nature requires a group of dedicated volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  and someone will get back to you.
