What do Players Get for Registering in the Hornets Houseleague Program?

All house league players receive team jersey, pants and hat. Teams will play one game per week and there are optional age specific practices each Friday in Huntsville (subject to diamond availability) and we may be adding practices in Gravenhurst depending on level of interest.  Opening Day will be on Saturday, May 23 in Huntsville and Wednesday, May 20 for Gravenhurst which will include a skills session run by Edge Baseball Training.

When Does the Season Start/End?

Season starts mid-May 2020 and ends in mid-August.

Can My Child Play House League and Travel Ball?

New policy for 2020 - For competitive balance reasons. we will not be allowing players on Muskoka Hornets travel baseball teams to also play house league for the 2020 season (with the exception of 9U players who will graduate to 11U next year.  This cohort will be allowed to play 11U house league in order to gain familiarity with live pitching).  The Hornets Board will revisit this policy decision at the end of the 2020 season.

What Does My Child Need to Play?

Each player should come equipped with an aluminum bat, batting helmet and jock/jill.  Equipment should be able to be purchased at local sporting goods stores.  Note: our league does have a limited supply of bats for each team.

Huntsville Wins 2019 Twinkletoes Cup

For the first time in the three year history of the Twinkletoes  Cup, Huntsville is bringing home the hardware.  The Twinkletoes Cup, named after New York Yankee All Star and Huntsville native George Selkirk,  is an annual end of year competition pitting an all star team of house leaguers from Huntsville against Gravenhurst.  This year  it was the  rookie U9s that squared off, and game 1 on Wednesday ended in a 4-4 tie.  In the exciting return match on Thursday in Huntsville, the game ended 13-12 in favor of the locals and was won in dramatic  fashion, on a walk off.  Most important for everyone was the grace and dignity shown by all participants, as is evidenced by the joint photo of both teams in front of the trophy.  Cant wait for 2020.
