Written By Rev

The 2017 GTBL season expects to be another good one, as six teams will battle in competition for the Alex Stanley Championship Trophy. The Thornhill Reds are the league’s defending champions, and have captured three of the last four league titles. The restructured playoffs will now be three rounds of series, and no longer a year end tournament. Also on tap for 2017 will be the return trip of the LMBQ, who will visit Toronto the first weekend of June. Leaside, East York and Thornhill will play host to St. Jean, Ottawa, and Shawinigan, who will make the drive west from Quebec.

Thornhill 2016 GTBL Champs

reds
The Thornhill Reds are the 2016 GTBL champions, after a 5-2 win in Pickering on Wednesday night. It’s the third Alex Stanley Memorial Trophy in four years for the Reds, who won back to back titles in 2013 and 2014.
Chadwick Cameron worked five innings for the decisive win, while rookie right hander Josh Appel faced the minimum over two innings of work, striking out four to notch the save. A key two run single off the bat of Reds left fielder Russ McGibbon in the fifth inning, put the game away for Thornhill, as the Red Sox were unable to make up the difference on the final night of GTBL play.
The Reds will move on and represent the GTBL in the first ever GTBL/COBA post season champions series. Thornhill will play the Erindale Cardinals a best two out of three series on September 10 and 11 at Centennial Park. Times and schedule will be posted as soon as they are finalized.
