HBUA Alumni Selected to 2019 Playoffs; League Championship Series

Congratulations are again in order for Matt Blackborow, Steven Jaschinski and Chris Marco for their selection to their respective league playoffs and championship series to conclude the 2019 season.

Blackborow was selected to work the Gulf Coast League (Rookie) playoffs and League Championship series. This was to be Blackborow’s first career playoff assignment and championship series in his first season of professional baseball. However, the playoffs were cancelled due to Hurricane Dorian.

Jaschinski worked the Carolina League (High-A) North Division Championship Series as well as the League Championship Series. This was Jaschinski’s third career playoff assignment and championship series (2018 – Midwest League, 2017 – Northwest League) in his third season of professional baseball. Jaschinski has also been assigned to the Arizona Instructional League.

Marco worked the Eastern League (AA) East Division Championship Series as well as the League Championship Series. This was Marco’s fifth career playoff assignment (2018 – Eastern League, 2016 – Carolina League, 2015 – Midwest League, 2014 – New York-Penn League) and fourth career Championship Series (2016, 2015, 2014) in his sixth season of professional baseball.

16U AAA Baseball Ontario Provincials – Day 2 Results and Sunday Outlook

Day 2 is in the books at the 2019 Baseball Ontario 16U Provincial Championship and just four teams remain heading into Sunday. Play will continue with two games at 9am:

Game 20 9:00am Bernie Arbour
Mississauga North (0 L) North Toronto (1 L)
Barrie (1 L) Etobicoke (1 L)
Game 21 9:00am Mohawk 2

Following the conclusion of play in the 9am games, one of two scenarios will remain:

Should Mississauga North be victorious against North Toronto, they would face the winner of the Barrie/Etobicoke contest at noon, at Bernie Arbour Stadium. A victory by Mississauga would clinch the title, while they would have to be defeated twice (due to their undefeated standing) in order to have the pennant cluched from their grasp.

Should North Toronto defeat Mississauga in the morning game, three teams would remain, all with one loss. A draw for a bye would occur among the remaining three teams, with the team winning the draw advancing directly to a single-elimination game for the provincial championship at 3pm at Bernie Arbour, while the other two teams would face off at noon. However, should Etobicoke defeat Barrie in their game, by virtue of the Rangers’ Round 3 bye on Saturday, they would be ineligble to participate in the draw.

In any case, Sunday is shaping up to be a fantastic day of amateur baseball in the Steel City!
