RSPA All-Star Night & Barbecue - Friday, July 12, 2019

Updated July 14, 2019.
  • The RSPA 2019 All-Star Night & Barbecue was held on Friday, July 12 at Paul Coffey Park.
  • Anybody who did not attend this event is crazy. Anybody who attended will tell you what a fun night it was!
  • Also, this event was subsidized by league fees, so if you didn't come out, you aren't getting your money's worth!
  • FREE BARBECUE, amazing hamburgers and 3 different kinds of sausages, free beverages, etc.
  • Krista and umpire RichardP and Ian manned the barbecues. We missed Mario and his special basil sprinkled tomatoes.
  • Home run contest (male & female), base running (male & female), pitching contest, outfield throwing, games, draws, etc.
  • Mens home run contest: EricV from Bonecrushers started out strong with 4 dingers in the first round but fell apart in the eliminations. Junior from Ruff Riders came on strong to win the event. Amit from Free Agents was second and Chad from Wrecking Crew was third.
  • Ladies home run: CORRECTION: Michelle from Honey Badgers beat out Cassie from Shark Fionns to win.
  • Mens baserunning: Ethan from Loaded Bases won with a time of 12.47 seconds, Junior from Ruff Riders secone 12.72,
    Ryan from I'd Hit That 12.76, Davian from Wrecking Crew 12.89.
  • Ladies baserunning: Lilian from Blaze Jays finally won because Leah took a year off.
  • Pitching: Danny from Honey Badgers won the pitching competition.
  • Outfield throwing: Tuan from Last Assassins won.
  • Deby Alvia from Massive Hits won $435 in the 50-50 draw and donated $100 back to the Kidney Foundation.
  • We raised $2579.90 (no dog tag this year) from the events and donations, $720 just from the male home-run contest, $435 from the 50-50 draw, $485 from the bat draw, won by ???. The league will round it up to donate $3000 to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
  • REMEMBER: We are also looking for donations to the Kidney Walk which will be held in September.
    I would like to see every team make at least a small donation.
  • The All-Star Night this year was a fund-raiser for Owen Dakins (son of Mike Dakins, Last Call) and the Kidney Foundation
    donating $3000 (not that we are forgetting Chris Allen and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.)
  • The RSPA All-Star Night is a result of a lot of work and cannot be successful without the help we get from the amazing crew of volunteers! KristaC and umpire RichardP and IanB on the barbecues, TerryJ doing his usual, anything that could be done from the comfort of his chair, EdG running all the events, Robbo and BriPie manning the beverages, Margine and Irene stepping in wherever needed, and all the people who stepped in to run and judge the events, etc.
  • Photos are posted. PLEASE SEND ME ANY PHOTOS YOU HAVE OF ALL-STAR NIGHT.
  • RSPA Slo-Pitch Tournament July 6-7

    Another great tournament on the hottest weekend of the summer! Hotter than h***!
