In a pitching duel on Tuesday night, the visiting Peterborough Riverdogs came out victorious over the Newmarket Hawks.
In what was a see-saw battle for the lead, the Hawks ended victorious with a 7-6 win over the Leaside Leafs in their 2012 home opener.
The Newmarket Hawks got the 2012 season off on the right foot with a convincing 8-3 win over the Thornhill Reds.
The Newmarket Hawks home and season opener against the Thornhill Reds was cancelled Tuesday night due to wet and soggy conditions at the Fairgrounds. Head Groundskeeper and Hawks Closer Mark West made the call.
Baseball in the GTA is about to get into the swing of things (see what I did there?) but before we start the Hawks would like officially welcome everyone back for the 2012 campaign. The season will open with a bang as last year’s top two teams in GTBL league play start with a back-to-back home-and-home on Tuesday May 8th.
