Although their work may not always be appreciated by those who are on the wrong end of close call, these young men and women aspire to do the best and ensure that the game is played in a fair manner. They work tirelessly to learn not only the rules of the game but how to deal with everyone they may come into contact with during the course of play.
SCMBA wishes to recognize the umpires in two classifications; Junior for those who are newer to the “profession” and of course, Senior for those who have more experience in calling games.
SCMBA is proud to have such a very strong group of umpires that work our games. We have received numerous compliments from across the Province with regards to the experience out of town teams have had with this group and this is a tribute to their command and professionalism.

Sharon Hogg Field Unveiled

 

neil nat n tim

Sunday afternoon marked the official unveiling of Sharon Hogg Field.

A large crowd was on hand, as the north Mosquito Diamond was re-named.

Attending the presentation was the late Sharon Hogg’s husband Neil Hogg, along with his son Tim and granddaughter Natalie.
Neil said sharing that moment with family was truly special.

“It was really fun, I liked it. Throwing out the first pitch and then giving the ball to my granddaughter so she could throw it to her dad, she was quite excited. Even though she is 4, she understood and she had a good time.” he said.

The ceremony took place just prior to the Swift Current Mosquito ‘AA’ Indians claiming the provincial title in the fields inaugural game, which Hogg felt was very fitting.

“That was special, to have them win for their 5th year in a row. The kids were excited, and I know she (Sharon) would have been really excited if she had been around, but she is probably looking down on us.” added Hogg.
Reflecting back on Sunday’s ceremony, Neil said everything went very well.

“They did a really good job, doing it all. It was very nice, and we were

quite proud and honoured to have it done.” said Hogg.

The honours for the late Sharon Hogg will continue next month. On August 15, she will be inducted into the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame.

Mosquito “AA” Indians win 5th consecutive Provincial championship at home on the newly named Sharon Hogg Field

The provincial championship streak for the Swift Current Mosquito ‘AA’ Indians is alive and well.

13-3 gold medal victory over the Lloydminster Twins secured Swift Current their 5th straight Baseball Sask ‘AA’ Mosquito Championship.

Assistant Coach with the Indians, Kevin Patenaude says a variety of factors led to the team’s success.

They just played a perfect game in the final, but the whole weekend they came ready, wanted to win, it wasn’t a fluke. These guys had been practicing hard for a long time and were ready to play.

Throughout their 5 provincial games, the Tribe went undefeated, outscoring their opponents 56 to 14.

Patenaude, says the lopsided scores goes to show how well the team played.

They just hit the ball so well. We started every game strong, we got on the bats and scored runs. Every single game we scored runs in the first inning. We were a very good hitting team, an old team with 10 second year players so that came through in the hitting. These kids just put in a lot of time an effort, practicing twice a week since April.” he added.

The provincial championship brings an end to the season for the Mosquito ‘AA’ Indians

On Sunday the Mosquito team went into Regina to play the Buffalos in a double header, splitting the games. The Peewee Elks team travelled to Gull Lake for the Peewee Elks finals. After losing the first game, the Peewee team won the second taking 3rd in the Elks league. Great job Peewees! The Peewee “AA” Indians traveled to Regina on Saturday for a double header vs. the Buffalos splitting the games, then played a double header vs. the White Sox on Sunday splitting those games as well.
