Saturday’s homeopener will make team and Intercounty Baseball League
history as starting for the Dodgers is 15 year old pitching phenom Evan
Grills.  Grills, a LHP from Whitby, will be the youngest player ever to play
for the Oshawa Dodgers and will sit in the Intercounty League record books
along with Larry Ament, the only other 15 year old to play in the IBL when
he pitched for Listowel back in 1969.  Grills is no stranger to firsts.  Often
referred to as the John Tavares of baseball, he is the youngest player ever
selected to the Ontario Blue Jays, joining their development program as a 12-
year old in the fall of 2004 and the 18 and under team as a 14-year old in
2006.  He became the youngest member of the Canadian National Junior team
at 14 when selected in March 2007.  

Presently Evan is ranked as the top Canadian player for the 2010 MLB Draft
and in the top 15 high school players in North America by Perfect Game and
Baseball America.

Join the Dodgers and show your support for this local baseball talent as he
makes history.  Tickets are only $6.00 at the door and season ticket packages
for all eighteen home games are available for purchase for only $50.00.  
Children 12 and under are admitted free of charge.

We look forward to seeing you Saturday for what promises to be the start of
an exciting season of Dodger baseball.
Watch as the Oshawa Dodgers Make
History This Saturday
This Saturday May 3, 2008 the Oshawa
Dodgers open up our seventh season in the
Intercounty Baseball League hosting the
Stratford Nationals at Kinsmen Stadium –
game time 2pm.  The Dodgers have done a
complete overhaul in the off-season, adding a
new coaching staff anchored by Field
Manager Dan Bleiwas and 20 year IBL veteran
Sean Travers who is making the jump to
coaching after winning an IBL championship
as a player last season with the Toronto Maple
Leafs.  This year’s team sees only seven
returning players in an effort to vastly
improve the quality of the on-field product
and advance in the IBL standings.
