WINLESS TRIP A SUCCESS FOR LEGIONAIRES

baseball oshawa logo

NORMALLY A WINLESS ROAD TRIP ISN’T CONSIDERED A SUCCESS, BUT THAT’S NOT THE CASE FOR THE OSHAWA LEGIONAIRES. THE LEGIONAIRES RETURNED FROM THEIR CUBA SPRING TRAINING TRIP WITH AN 0-4 RECORD, BUT THE TRAINING SESSIONS MADE THE TRIP A HUGE SUCCESS AND AN EXPERIENCE NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN.

 

“WORKING WITH THE CUBAN ATHLETES AND COACHES WAS A SPECIAL EXPERIENCE. SEEING THEIR PASSION FOR THE GAME AND HOW THEY TRAIN EVERYDAY, WE WILL IMPLEMENT SOME OF THAT INTO OUR PROGRAM” SAYS MANAGER DARYL MACKLEM.

 

THE LEGIONAIRES LOST BY SCORES OF 7-0, 4-1, 6-0 AND 3-0. “WE ALMOST WON GAME 2 (4-1 LOSS). THEIR SHORTSTOP IS A SPECIAL PLAYER AND HE MADE TWO TREMENDOUS PLAYS TO PREVENT US FROM SCORING RUNS. WHEN YOU MAKE MISTAKES THEY MAKE YOU PAY AND THEY MAKE NO MISTAKES AT ALL. THEY MADE ONE ERROR IN 4 GAMES” SAID MACKLEM.

 

THE LEGIONAIRES PLAYED AND TRAINED WITH THE MATANZAS BASEBALL ACADEMY WHICH TRAINS EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR WITH PROFESSIONAL CUBAN COACHES.

 

 

THE LEGIONAIRES PLAY IN THE ELITE BASEBALL LEAGUE. THE LEAGUE WAS FORMED IN JUNE OF 2014 AND TOOK OVER THE AAA PROGRAMING.
