On Saturday, May 12th, the awesome people from Jays Care Foundation came over to Flemingdon Park to host a Baseball Day for all three of our BLAST locations. We’re so grateful to Jays Care for their generosity and the time and effort they put into organising the competition. We’re also incredibly grateful to all of the staff, volunteers, participants and families who came out to support the event. It was a fantastic day all around!
The day was packed full of fun baseball-skills games and activities designed to develop sports skills AND life skills. Participants were able to accumulate points for their baseball talent as well as for good sportsmanship and for demonstrating positive character qualities. The competition was stiff, however, as the prize was big… the winning team would get to go to the Jays Care Clubhouse to watch the Jays play the Oakland Athletics on Sunday, May 20th!
All the participants were amazing – on the baseball diamond and off! And everyone really enjoyed the delicious pizza lunch provided. It was also great to see so many parents and families out too cheering on our budding leaders.
In the end, the deserving winners were BLAST Grenoble who showed off their AMAZING baseball prowess as well as their positive attitudes and excellent leadership skills! BLAST Grenoble kids will get to attend the Jays Care Clubhouse this weekend but Jays Care Foundation has also generously donated extra seats in the Rogers Centre so all the BLAST participants and their parents who supported the tournament can watch the Jays play this weekend too!
Thank you so much Jays Care Foundation for helping Moorelands develop budding leaders in our community!
