Thornhill Reds Senior Baseball

Reds fall in league final

Another year of Thornhill Reds senior baseball has come to an end. The Reds fell in the final game of the 2017 GTBL championship 6-1 to the Pickering Red Sox, who won the series 3-1 and were named the league champions.

The Reds had a great year, adding a number of key pieces and playing five rounds at the provincial tournament. 2018 looks very promising, stay tuned over the winter for team updates and information.



The Thornhill Reds are having problems winning ball games at Don Beer Park late in 2017. The Reds dropped their second straight road contest in Pickering Monday night, falling 10-4 in game three of the GTBL championship series.

Josh Appel(5-2) took the loss, and the Reds find themselves with their backs against the wall, needing two straight victories in order to repeat as GTBL champs.

Game four is Wednesday night at Bishops Cross, where Chadwick Cameron takes the ball, looking to extend the Reds season.


Major wills Reds to series tie

A gutty complete game effort from righty Mack Major(4-3) propelled the Thornhill Reds to a 5-2 home win, and evened the GTBL championship final best of five at 1-1.

It was another tight ball game as the Reds led 1-0 headed to the eighth inning, coughing up the lead on a costly two out error which allowed a 2-1 Pickering advantage headed to the bottom of the inning. The Reds rallied for four in the home half,  took care of business in the ninth, and knotted the series ahead of game three.

Thornhill travels to Don Beer Park in Pickering on Monday night for game three.


Reds lose a heartbreaker

Headed to the bottom of the ninth inning in game one of the GTBL finals, the Thornhill Reds and Pickering Red Sox were tied 0-0. It took just one hitter to break the tie, a walk off home run for Pickering OF Pete Ricciardi. The 1-0 final gives Pickering the same 1-0 lead in the best of five finale.

Chadwick Cameron(4-3) went the distance, and was saddled with the tough luck loss. He scattered five hits, while striking out seven Red Sox, in a game he certainly deserved to win.

Game two is Saturday at Bishops Cross, 2:30pm start time. Mack Major takes the ball for Thornhill.


Reds to meet Red Sox in GTBL final

The Thornhill Reds will play the Pickering Red Sox in a best three out of five series to determine the 2017 GTBL champion. Chadwick Cameron will take the ball in game one for the Reds, which goes tonight in Pickering at Don Beer Park.

The Reds are looking to repeat as league champions, a feat they last did in 2013/14.
