2016 - Robbie Biddlecombe Awards

▲Top
Players, coaches and parents gathered to recognize the 2016 nominees and recipients of the Robbie Biddlecombe Award on Saturday June 11th.  

The Robbie Biddlecombe Memorial Award is a special award in memory of a special player. Robbie was never the best player on the team, in fact baseball did not come naturally to him, but what he lacked in talent he made up for in determination and an infectious, positive attitude. Robbie's life was cut short by cancer at the age of 11. Forest Hills Little League has been remembering Robbie through this annual award since 1980.

The trophy is awarded to a Minor and Major league player each year, as well as a plaque to a nominee from each team. The selection criteria do not even include baseball skills, but instead focuses on recognizing players with the other qualities of a team player; sportsmanship, positive attitude, joy of the game and support for their teammates.

Our thanks to the Biddlecombe family for their continued support for this award each year.

This year's nominees and winners were as follows: 

AA nomineesAL nominees NL nominees 
Blue Jays:  Diarmuid Fleming
Cubs: Ben Lee
Giants: Benjamin Siska
Red Sox: Dylan Dervish
Yankees: Charlie Yeh
Athletics: Nicholas Goncalves
Mariners: Jonathan Wang

Red Sox: Alex Rickman

2016 - Appreciation BBQ

▲Top
Volunteers and families from across Forest Hills Little League gathered to celebrate the end of the 2016 regular season with an Appreciation BBQ and Coaches' Game.  The sun was out and this event was our time to say thanks to all those who give so much time to the kids and the league over the season.

This year we also honoured the service of a few of our longest serving and most dedicated volunteers with the presentation of plaques and a retired jersey.  Thanks to Elena Grant, Kathy Palfy, Barb Ferreira and Brandy McCullagh (see picture) for all you have done for the league.

Our sincere thanks to Thrifty Foods for all the support they provided for this event.  Thanks also to Dave Moretto and his team of BBQ volunteers including the Rickmans, Mitch Rabiner and Gail Morrison - we could not have done it without you!!

Hyack Silver for Forest Hills A's in New West!

▲Top

It was a wet start to the weekend out in New West for the Forest Hills Major A’s…..but Monday night had the shine of Silver.

Competing with 16 teams from across the Lower Mainland the Forest Hills Major A’s, on the strength of 2 wins Sunday and some stellar defense (giving up a only 5 runs combined), punched their ticket into the Gold final on Monday night. Unfortunately a strong host team forced them to settle for 2nd.  Scanning the trophies we couldn’t find a Forest Hills team on the Gold, and only once on the Silver (2006).  Coaches and parents are very proud of the boys and the performance they delivered…..WELL DONE FOREST HILLS!!!
