Reid's Raiders Take the 2016 A Division Final

Reid's Raiders

Reid's Raiders won the A Division of 2016 Mike Reid Memorial Softball Tournament in a 13-9 win over the Saints. The week-end was plagued by inclement weather with torrential rain on Saturday but all games in the tournament were played and we managed to finish as scheduled on Sunday evening.

A huge congrats to everyone involved including Mike's sister, Kathy Reid-Leonard and her husband Patrick Leonard, Tournament Chairman Wade Wilson, Cynthia Bremner, Brenda Philp, Adam Misztal, and the many volunteers who helped out at the event. Without these people, our tournament would not be possible.

Other winners in the tournament included The Diamond Divas who won the ladies division 11-3 over the Soul Sisters. Men's B Division winners were The Incredibles, who took the final 15-12 over the Latenights.

In Search of Division "B" Winning Teams

As you might or might not know, the Mike Reid Division 'B' Trophy went missing a few years ago. We were hoping to get back sometime but it never happened. With the loss of the trophy, we lost the names of many winning teams from throughout the years.

We replaced the trophy in time for the 2016 tournament but need your help in naming all the Division 'B' winning teams from past tournaments. We are halfway there but we need to name all the winning teams. Here's the what we have so far: 2015-Stadium 21; 2014-The Longballs; 2013-Scotyz Bar; 2012-Dirty Dawgers; 2003-Knights; 2002-Dodgers; 2001-High Sierra; 2000-Canada Drive-in; 1999-Dodgers; 1998-East Greenfield; 1990-Greenfield Park Legion; 1989-Peel Pub; 1987-Macdonald High School Alumni; 1986-Fred Dobson’s Texaco.

We are missing the Division 'B' winning teams from 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2009, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 1997, 1996, 1995, 1994, 1993, 1992, 1991, 1988, and 1985.
