Andrew Haynes Commits to Shippensburg University

10 Year Muskoka Hornets veteran Andrew Haynes committed to play baseball for the Shippensburg University Raiders in Pennsylvania, a Division 2 school in the well-regarded PSAC Conference.    Haynes will join the Raiders in the fall of 2019.

Andrew Haynes, along with former teammate and current Laurentian University baseball player Ethan Murdy, joined the program in 2009 and are the only two players who have been with the Hornets since inception.   With this signing, there are now four Hornets playing post-secondary baseball across North America.  Management expects another three or four commitment announcements in the next few months.

Congratulations Andrew - you deserve it.

Please come out and support your local Peewee-Bantam house league champions as they do battle in the 2nd Annual Twinkletoes Cup, named after Huntsville native and former New York Yankee all star George Selkirk.  

The Twinkletoes Cup pits the top Gravenhurst house league players from the Peewee-Bantam division against the winner of Huntsville's Peewee-Bantam division for 2018, the Belly Ice Cream Royals coached by veteran baseball local Al Hauck.

First pitch is Wednesday at 7 pm on Diamond A at McCulley.  Game 2 of the two game series will be Thursday at 7pm at the Wharf Diamond in Gravenhurst.

Let's see if Gravenhurst can defend its championship in this year's instalment of the annual Twinkletoes competition.
