Well this season is done. It has been an interesting to say the least, but with all the schedule changes, player movements, e-mails back and forth and bickering at the ball park, there was still the baseball. A lot went on this season, A LOT. When the ego's were checked, and the bickering had stopped and the games were being played it was a GREAT season. Red Team, Black Soxs, Orange and Blue you all in your own way made this year NEW! The same old issues came up but NEW idea's came forth.
BLUE TEAM You brought the experience with Fever and Clark, your speed is uncanny with well, everyone else on the team. To have a team-mate permanently on the DL, Brian still has the wheels, and the name of the best sports injury physiotherapist. You are all competitive sports minded players on the field. And fun, washer box players after the game. Thank you to each player, fan, scorekeeper, and "phil in" you brought to this league, this year and hopefully next.
BLACK TEAM I have to say in the beginning you were a broken team. Half of the team didn't return, you had a group of completely new faces to BIMF and if you combine their travel time, are the most travelled since Richard. Mark, Ernesto, Oz, and Oscar, thank you for making the drive and joining BIMF. You brought a style of your own and a respect for the game. La Tour thank you for recognizing a need for an up to date Website and taking that on, on your own. You have done a wonderful job on the site and kept a mature and fun outlook for outsiders to view BIMF. Keith you are a stand up man. You, I think, are the longest running Black team-mate. You have shown through the years how to adapt and grow in an ever changing league. You have become a stability in an unstably mix. All of the team has contributed one way or another. Thank you for being a part of BIMF2013 and hopefully part of the New BIMF2014 season.
ORANGE TEAM Without all of you I don't think this season would of happened. Cale you were a leader with respect. The new faces were a welcome addition. The maturity shown on the field when the score was against you was a pleasure to see and showed me and maybe others that if you replace ego's with humility hard work will pay off. To make it to the finals as a rookie team is commendable. All of the team should be proud of the accomplishments made hope to see you all again next year, either as orange or with more friends to make more colours in the BIMF league.
RED TEAM History didn't fully repeat itself. With team-mate changes, "phil in's" and other members coming out to play a game the season was played. With the adversities faced, Red shirts played ball. With the shortage of players due to changes, withdrawing from the League, and injuries the core of the team rallied and got by with a little help of their friends. You faced that cliff and climbed to the top. Congratulations on your play off Win in BIMF2013. "Everyone makes the play-offs but only one gets the trophy"-Anonymous
To all the Teams thank you. Your contribution to BIMF is appreciated and hopefully your support in next year will be present. Ether it be as a player, helping with cost saving measures, and overall enjoyment of the league and Baseball.
