Longhorns Tourney 2009

The tournament was a sucess once again. The Calgary Cardinals won on the strength of their 2 pitchers and some timely hitting. Congrats to them, it’s good to see the FMBA being represented well. We lost in the semi-finals. But onto more important things… The greatest team ever in the history of baseball in Alberta (according to them) made a less than impressive showing. The Fort. Saskatchewan Chokers, err, Athletics showed that past performance is a good indication of the future. They made an unceremonious exit by going 0-2 and being eliminated. It looks like they won’t be invited back due to their poor on-field play and lack of support when it comes to the beer-garden. We wish them all the best in the future. There is little doubt that they can find some other tournaments where they can be more competitive.
