While politicians and businessmen go back and forth on what to do with Ottawa Lynx Stadium, young players from 4 teams put the diamond to good use on October 6th.  Thanks to Brian Beehler and Rob Romard, players from their 14U and 13U Ottawa Chiefs Fall teams, got a chance to play on the very diamond that the Montreal Expos once played a scrimmage game on.

The Chiefs hosted the Montreal Giants, who brought to town their 14U and 13U teams.  This was the second year that the Chiefs have participated in a Fall program with teams from the Montreal area.

On top of the novelty of playing on a professional diamond in front of friends and family, it was also an opportunity for players who are often on rival city teams, to play as teammates.  And while the play was competitive, the coaches didn't miss out on offering players a chance to play in a different position than they may play in the summer, or giving a chance to pitch.

What a nice end to the 2013 baseball season.  Thank you, coaches.
