That there is a place for semi-pro baseball in this province – there is no doubt.

Barrie Baycat’s batters did this more often than any other team in the InterCounty Baseball league – the team lost just two games in the regular season.

More than 1,200 fans packed the Jack Couch Park and saw the Barrie Baycats take a two-game lead in the IBL final with a 13-4 win over the Kitchener Panthers Saturday night.

Game 3 is Sunday night in Barrie.

The objective has always been to make the ball games a family event - winning more gsames and naking it past the first round of the finals would be nice too. Scott Robertson would like to see a better playing field with upgraded public facilities - but for now he is happy to see fathers, sone and Mom out at the ball park.

Limited seating at the Nelson ball park.

Can you imagine that many fans showing up for a game in Burlington? The ball park at Nelson could hold – perhaps 300.

We don’t know how many Burlington baseball fans are taking in these IBL final games – we do know that if there are any they are seeing great baseball.
