A member of the league has asked us to pass along the following message to the league. See below…
To all Jewish ballplayers in the Hendon Park league:
My name is Tommy Bacher and I am the organizer and a player of the Bacher and Co. team in the league. I am also the president of Maccabi Canada, a national not for profit organization who among other programs, send Jewish athletes to various Maccabi sports events. Next summer from July 5-15 In Mexico City will be held the Pan American Maccabi Games where approximately 3000 athletes from 25 countries will compete in many different sports, one of which is softball (fastpitch). We are sending a masters age team but are also interested in sending an open age team.
From what I have seen in the league, many of you are talented enough to try out and hopefully be selected. To qualify to play, either one of your biological parents must be Jewish and you cannot be practising any other religion. If we receive enough interest we will arrange a tryout this fall.
Key info –
Dates: July 5-15
Location: Mexico City
Training: There will be workouts during the winter and next spring and summer prior to going
If interested please send an email ASAP to the Chairman our Softball program, Morrie Frydberg:
Playing for Canada at a Maccabi Games is an opportunity of a lifetime and I sincerely hope that many of you will be able to experience this first hand next year.
Please pass on this information to anyone you feel would be interested
Best of luck to those of you still in the playoffs.
