2015 Season for Junior Bulls The Most Successful Yet!
Heading into the 2015 season the Burlington Junior Bulls had a lot of questions and roster spots to fill due to the departure of seven players including 2014 MVP Ben Kirby and half of the starting pitching rotation. What manager Jason Mckay did know is he would be strong up the middle with Catcher Greg Marco, SS Matt Mastantuono and CF Chris McKay returning, along with P Chris DuPuis. Veterans Daniel Peake and Jake Gerovac also returned to add both on and off-field leadership. The addition of UofT standout and 2015 IBL rookie of the year Adam Odd was also a fantastic find for the Junior Bulls. But perhaps the most exciting thing about the 2015 team for McKay was the influx of Burlington-born talent, like Nathan Folo, Erik Werner, Ben Vukanovich, Justyn Gallant, Derek Zwolinski, Mack Kenney, Alex Nolan and Mitchell Solsky. Never have the Junior Bulls had so many Burlington-born players and of course - that is the ultimate goal of this program.
Season highlights included:
- - An 27-11-1 overall record
- - COBA Regular Season Champions
- - Brantford Tournament Champions
- - 3 consecutive Home Runs in a game by Jake Gerovac
This season culminated in the Burlington Bulls winning the 2015 COBA Junior Regular Season Championship. Although the season did not end with a playoff championship the 2015 season for the Junior Bulls was a great success!

Rookie Ball Bulls Win T3 COBAs!
The Burlington Bulls Rookie Tier 3 were Champions this past weekend in Kitchener for the Tier 3 Loop Finals Tournament. After having some ups and down in tournament play this season, the Bulls were firing on all cylinders this weekend, playing dominantly both on offence and defence. They went undefeated against tough rivals Brantford (12-9), Waterloo (14-8) and Waterdown (21-11) in round robin play. The Bulls then faced Kitchener in the Semi Final. After the Bulls put up 7 in the first inning, Kitchener battled back to put up 4 in the first, then 5 in the second, shutting out the Bulls to take the lead 9-7. Continuing to play confidently, the Bulls then put up 4 and 3 and held the Panthers to just 1 per inning in the 3rd and 4th. In the 5th inning, the Bulls sealed the deal, putting up another 7, then holding Kitchener to 0, winning 21-11. On to the Champtionship game... The Championship game was against long time rival Waterloo Tigers. The Bulls T3 Rookies had a number of extremely close games with Waterloo throughout the season, but today it was the Bulls that were dominant. The bats were extremely hot by the final game. Putting up 7, 4, 1, then another 7 and holding Waterloo to only 8 runs in the game, the Bulls were more than happy to take the Championship 19-8 in 5 innings. Congratulations to the Rookie Bulls 3 on their tournament win and winning the Loop Finals !

Blastball, T-Ball, Soft Toss & Challenger Baseball FUN DAY - Saturday, July 25th
BOMBA Fun Day is the culmination of the Blastball, T-Ball, and Soft Toss seasons as well as our Challenger division. It is a complete event where teams play one final game and receive championship awards. We hope everyone who participated enjoyed themselves, we hope you enjoyed your baseball season and we hope to see you next year!
The Tier 2 Peewee Bulls had another great weekend of baseball at the Vaughan Vikings 2015 Major Peewee AA and Below Tournament. The boys placed first in their division to bypass qualifiers and advance directly to the semi-final game against the Vaughan Major 2 Peewee team. After an early lead by Vaughan, our boys rallied back to secure the game 6 to 4.
Our Bulls advanced to the championship game against the Tier 1 Georgetown team. They hoped to come out on top as they had when they last met Georgetown in tournament play in Hamilton. However, despite some great pitching and solid hitting, our boys were unable to get the repeat win.
Our Bulls' second-place finish was their best showing in tournament play to date. They are steadily improving and are hungry for an overall win at their hometown tournament in a couple of weeks. Outstanding job boys!!
The Burlington Bulls Minor Peewee Tier 1 were Champions this past weekend at the Barrie 2015 Tournament.
After a Friday night loss to Barrie, the team battled hard to win both Saturday games with a 14-2 win against Newmarket and a hard fought 4-2 win against Guelph.
On Championship Sunday, we got the championship game by finishing first, where we, once again, faced the formidable Barrie team. Excellent pitching, stellar catches and solid hitting, the boys played some of their best baseball to beat Barrie 10-0.
Congratulations on your first Tournament win this year, Bulls, and best of luck at Cooperstown!
The Bulls Peewee 2 team had an incredible weekend of baseball at the 2015 "Allstate Insurance" Baseball Classic in Hamilton.
The boys were undefeated in preliminary play Friday and Saturday, including a win against the Halton Hills tier 1 team. As the only team with a perfect 4 and 0 record, the boys ranked FIRST and advanced to the AAA Semi-Final game.
Our Bulls fought hard to maintain an early lead against Chatham, but were bested in the fifth inning.
The coaching staff would like to express how proud they are of the effort displayed by all players this weekend. The boys battled every inning and never gave up. That is all any coaching staff could ask for!!
