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:
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!
