Congratulations to our 2009 champions, Hickson Reds, and in particular to winning pitcher Mark Van Vliet, who went the distance for 12 innings in the championship game against legendary pitcher Darren Zack. It was one of the best final games and biggest crowds we have ever had at our tournament.
Thank you to all the teams and fans who attended. Special thanks to George Wilkins, Kelly Murphy, Joe Todd, Al Doran, and the Woodstock Umpires Association. Hope to see you all again next year.
