Teams set sights to dethrone Stoney Creek in Little League ball


Stoney Creek Optimist Little League is on the defensive… and what they are defending is last year’s Ontario District 1 championship as part of the Little League International Tournament.

Stoney Creek will begin its defence on July 11 against Erindale in a 3.30 p.m. game. All games will be played at High Park in Toronto. Joining Stoney Creek will be Ancaster, Dundas, Oakville, High Park, and Erin dale.

This year’s tournament format has been changed from a double knockout to a round robin format. The six teams from District 1 will face each other once in the round robin with the top four teams advancing to the semi-finals on Wednesday, July 16. The championship game will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 17.

Eleven divisions of play in Little League Baseball and Little League Softball culminate in World Series tournaments. In a 45-day period, more than 30,000 tournament games are played in more than 100 countries. The District 1 champions advance to the Provincial Tournament in Timmins, starting on Tuesday, July 22.
