Win-less Herd has the batter of the week in their line up - figure that one out.

May 29th, 2017



Justin Gideon is staying positive and, with a touch more confidence in his game, the results are showing on the field.

The Burlington Herd leadoff hitter, fresh off being named the IBL Batter of the Week, continued pumping out the hits on Saturday, mashing a long home run to centre-field as part of a 3-for-5 day in an 8-7 loss to the Brantford Red Sox.

Gideon, who turns 22 next month, is fourth in the IBL with a .478 batting average after six games, and leads the league with 11 hits and four doubles. His nine runs scored are second-most in the IBL.

Herd batter - Gideon

Justin Gideon, IBL Batter of the Week for May 15-21 swings for the win-less Burlington Herd

“I’m feeling more confident,” said Gideon, now in his third season with Burlington’s IBL squad. “As a rookie, sometimes you’re kind of hoping for hits, but when things are going well, you’re expecting to get hits and that makes a huge difference. I think that positive attitude really helps.”

He was named IBL Batter of the Week for May 15-21, after going 7-for-9, which included a monster 5-for-5 game in a 14-12 home loss to the Barrie Baycats.

“I haven’t changed too much with my approach, just some subtle things,” he said. “On the mental side, I feel like I’m playing with a lot more confidence, especially with being a leader on the team. I think you have to have that confidence regardless of how you’re doing.

“You have to take things one at-bat at a time. You can’t look at your day and see that you’re 0-for-2 and be scared to go 0-for-3. You have to look at the next at-bat and try to get a hit. You have to have a short memory.”

Gideon has played four seasons of OUA baseball at Brock University, where he has thrived, twice being named Brock’s MVP and earning OUA Top Hitter accolades. He was second in the OUA with a.469 batting average and two homers in 64 at-bats in 2014 and followed with a .422 average and three homers and a league-leading 30 runs scored in 2015.

Standing May 29-17But things came untracked in the 2016 fall season, when his average fell below .200

“It was just a combination of things,” he said. “I try not to make excuses, but it was just a slump I couldn’t get out of. It’s a lot shorter season and there are not as many at-bats (to come out of it), so it was just tough.”

However, he is making the most of a shot at redemption to get things back on track with the Herd this season. As the team’s table-setter and centre-fielder, he wants to continue setting high standards on the field.

“I want to bring a sense of leadership and try to keep a positive attitude among the guys and perform well every game,” he said. “ Even if I’m not performing offensively, I want to bring it defensively and just always be hustling and play with the same intensity every game.”

Rains drowns out the baseball schedule - opening game for The Herd set for May 12 in London

The start of the 2017 Intercounty Baseball League season has had to wait.

Baseball IBL league colours

What’s wrong with this graphic? The team crest for the Burlington Inter County Baseball League is now known as The Herd. This is the last look at the crest of a team that did come close – but never won the top spot at the end of the season.

The new start of the IBL season is scheduled for Friday, May 12 at 7:35 p.m. when the London Majors host the Burlington Herd at Labatt Park.

Both the Barrie Baycats and Toronto Maple Leafs postponed their home openers scheduled for Sunday, May 7 due to poor weather and field conditions.

Barrie was set to host London, and that game has been rescheduled for Tuesday, June 27 at 7:45 p.m.

The Baycats will now open their home schedule against the Leafs on Saturday, May 13 at 2 p.m.

Toronto was supposed to start the season against the Kitchener Panthers. That game has yet to be rescheduled.


Once they were Bandits – now they are The Herd and they play in a ball park they call the farm. Their opening game got re-scheduled.

The people who manage the baseball schedule are working over the dates and the options they have to work with.

With the postponement, the Leafs will play their home opener Sunday, May 14 against the Brantford Red Sox at 2 p.m.

The pavement didn't seem to be a problem. Get a dozen kids and a soccer ball plus two nets and you've got a game. It was pleasant to watch - some benches would have kept people around longer.

If the playing fields are closed due to all the rain – perhaps the city will open up some streets for the kids to play on. This on Brant Street opposite city hall during one of the street festivals.

It’s official: the new outdoor pool at Nelson Park will open this summer

News 100 yellowBy Staff

May 2, 2017



The new outdoor pool currently under construction at Nelson Park will open this summer.
Work to replace Nelson pool began in fall 2016 after the city found that the steel bottom of the pool had rotted away.

The new pool at Nelson Park is 50-metres long with eight lanes. It will include a beach-entry leisure pool and a new splash pad located beside the pool.

Nelson pool rendering

Artists rendering of the Nelson pool now under construction. Scheduled to open this summer.

Construction of this new pool is being done by Schilthuis Construction – the people who were hired to build The Pier and had to walk away from the job when they found the design was such that they believed The Pier could not be constructed from the plans the contractor was give,

There were also issues with the specifications for the steel that was used. The problems with the steel came to light when a crane on the site toppled over. An inspection of the badly bent steel revealed that it did not meet the specifications.

Nelson pool - concrete pour

Concrete pour at the splash pad part of the new Nelson pool

That’s when everyone involved in the project sued everyone else. In the long run it all got worked out and after a settlement worked out by a Judge who did not want this matter going to trial. Then everyone claimed they had won.

Schilthuis was not to blame for that mess – but his reputation took a serious hit and he had to struggle for some time to get his business back to where it should have been.

Henry Schilthuis will give the city great value for the money they are going to spend.

An opening date for the new outdoor pool will be announced later this spring.

One weekend left to enjoy skiing at Glen Eden

sportsgold 100x100By Staff

March 21st, 2017



Spring skiing can be really nice. It’s a chance to get an early start on your tan.

Not much left to the season though and for those in Halton, know that – Glen Eden will reopen for one last weekend of skiing and snowboarding for the 2016/17 season from Friday, March 24 until Sunday, March 26.


One weekend left in the season.

A combination of some recent natural snow, the remaining man made snow and some cooler seasonal temperatures mean the skiing and snowboarding season will continue for a few more days.

Glen Eden is closed this week Monday through Thursday, and is reopening Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Lifts will be running from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Lift tickets will be $22 this weekend (rather than $38 for adults and $33 for teens), and all season passes are valid (Super Value, 5×7 and All Access). Glen Eden opened for the 2016-17 season on December 17, 2016.

“We would like to thank all the skiers, snowboarders and lesson participants who visited Glen Eden during the 2016/17 season,” said Gene Matthews, Director, Operations, Conservation Halton. “Glen Eden enjoyed a successful season this past year with visitation returning to typical levels. Our grooming and snowmaking team did a fantastic job with temperatures which were above seasonal, particularly in February.”

The Glen Eden season typically starts before Christmas and Boxing Day and is usually concluded by the end of March Break. Last season, Glen Eden didn’t open until January 8, 2016, the latest start to a season in ten years, and closed on March 12, 2016, the earliest closing in the same time frame. Recognizing the varying winter conditions Southern Ontario receives each year, Glen Eden depends on making its own snow and continuous investments in snowmaking infrastructure

If you want to hit the hills next season there is an Early Bird special for the 2017/18 season on Season Passes and for the first time ever all the Snow School programs. You can register now for the Snow School programs now for next season.

The Early Bird features the best available pricing of the year on all Season Pass and Snow School programs. It closes on April 12, 2017.
