Thornhill Reds Senior Baseball

Week 2 a wash

Both games for the week of May 16-22 have been rained out, as both NMKT and Markham parks have pulled the permits.

The Reds will look to get back in action on Wednesday May 25, at their home opener vs Markham. First pitch is 7:30, with Andrew Bergman slated to take the hill.

 

Reds tie opener

The Reds took a 6-3 lead into the ninth inning at Stan Wadlow park on opening night, but some costly errors forced them to settle for a 6-6 tie in game 1 of 2011.

The Reds wasted an excellent effort from starting pitcher Gary Rose, who went 5 strong innings, giving up just 1 hit, and striking out 8 Bulldogs.

Sean Cunningham went 3 for 4 in his Thornhill debut, and Greg Fleming had 2 hits and an RBI in his return. Dan Lehmkuhl looked good as the Reds new leadoff man, also adding 2 hits and a stolen base on Monday night.

Lefty Adam Frydman, left after facing 1 hitter in the 8th inning with an apparent elbow problem, which is worrisome news to the Reds staff.

Thornhill is next in action May 17th at Newmarket, where righthander Dave McElroy makes the start in his Reds debut.

 

Reds ready for action

The 2011 season is just around the corner, and after finally getting outside for some much needed work, the Reds seem ready to go.

Gary Rose has been announced as the opening day starter, and he will take the hill against his former team East York. Early in the year, all pitchers will be on a pitch count, so expect to see multiple arms on the mound opening night, and through most of May. Monday night should be a pretty exciting night, as the Reds parade their new look lineup out at Wadlow, and look to open with a big W.

The Reds will have to wait to play on their home field for one more week, as Wednesday nights game was cancelled by the city of Markham.

   

Reds finalize 2011 roster

The 2011 edition of the Thornhill Reds will featureĀ 11 new faces. Lets take a minute to introduce them.

Greg Fleming-

Greg last played senior ball in 2008 with the Reds and sat out the last couple of years recovering from some arm issues. He was picked up by the Ontario champion Oshawa Royals that year, and joined them at the nationals. He will play some outfield, catch and is expected to hit well above .300 and drive in runs. He had a ton of outfield assists in his last year of GTBL ball, and will be a valuable part of the Reds bullpen, as a hard throwing end of game guy.

Brad Crone-

The Florida native joins the Reds after a 1 year stint with the Whitby Canadians, and will jump right into the action. He hits from the left side and handles the bat with ease. He is a good outfielder and also understands the game very well. Brad also is very good on the mound, and will see some innings there too. Look for Brad to put up solid numbers across the board and contribute right from the start.

Drew Roberts-

Another great hitter who puts up solid numbers year after year, comes to the Reds via Oshawa in 2011. Drew has lots of pop in his stick, and is another lefthanded hitter in the Reds formidable lineup. Drew will mainly play first base, but will log some innings behind the plate and at designated hitter. He has played in the GTBL for not only the Royals, but in Ajax and Markham as well, and the Reds are happy to have him in the middle of their lineup this year.
