True meaning of the Constable William Moss Memorial Fastpitch Tournament…
Foxtrap and Butlerville Bantam Boys Teams were more than excited when they walked onto a freshly groomed diamond this morning, but excitement quickly changed to disappointment when Foxtrap realized that they only had 8 players. Short one player, they were afraid they would lose by Default.
In the true meaning of the game, Butlerville’s Nick Parsons agreed to play for Foxtrap and face his own teammates. Foxtrap lost 8-1, but took a vote and awarded their team’s Player of The Game to Nick Parsons.
Moss Tournament Committee Members were extremely touched by Nick’s Sportsmanship. It is the reason we put the time and effort into this week’s tournament.
Around the other diamonds, the tournament is running smoothly, thanks to the beautiful weather, and to many dedicated volunteers, coaches and parents, often taking time off from work to allow their children to play this week.
The Moss Committee would also like to thank the NL Senior Men’s Fastpitch Softball Team once again for running the Tournament Canteen. They serve as role models to these young players, with most being alumni of previous Moss Tournaments.
Thanks to all Tournament Sponsors: Browning Harvey (Pepsi), Mary Brown’s, Grand & Toy, Old Dutch, Needs, Provincial Department of Tourism, Culture & Recreation & City of St. John’s.
Good Luck to everyone in the crossover games tomorrow!
Moss Committee Members
