WATERLOO, Ont. (February 11, 2013) - The Wilfrid Laurier Mens Baseball program has teamed up with the Kitchener Panthers Tier I PeeWee team and it is a win-win situation for all involved.
This past fall, the Panthers PeeWee team assisted the Golden Hawks by serving as bat boys throughout the OUA conference schedule. The boys got a chance to watch an OUA baseball game first hand and meet the players and coaches. This winter, the Golden Hawks are re-paying the young ball players by assisting at their weekly practices. The Golden Hawks are providing instruction to the PeeWee team as they prepare for their up-coming summer season.
"Our guys are happy to help out with the Kitchener Panthers PeeWee team," commented Head Coach SCOTT BALLANTYNE. "They were all PeeWee players not that long ago and its a big thrill for the kids to get to practice and learn from our student-athletes. It is a big part of what our program is all about."
