A fun end to another successful season of minor baseball, the annual wind-up had a large crowd of young athletes and their families show up to cheer them on, Sunday, June 26.

After some fun baseball-related competitions at the minor league field at Centennial Park, baseball players gathered in the Centennial Hall to receive their awards for the season.

After numerous special league awards were all handed out, the greatest award of the season was then awarded.

The award, named the For the Love of Baseball, went to Peewee League player Josh Hill.

“This player enjoys playing, and is willing to take it to the next level,” Lake Cowichan District Minor Baseball Association president Connie Vaughan said, adding that Hill is a pleasure to coach, and is willing to take on all positions.

Hill played on last year’s all-stars Mosquito League team, which ended the 2010 season as the second best in the province. The young baseball player plans on registering for baseball clinics this summer.

Last year’s first-ever For the Love of Baseball Award went to Cale Eddy.
