The Granby Cubs men’s baseball teamfinished the regular season 2-15. The team moved up to the 35+ division for the 2019 season and played many close games after playing in the 25+ division in 2018. Highlights of the regular season include the team’s first ever win in East Haven, a 7-3 victory on May 19 and a 14-0, 5-inning, mercy rule win against the Bristol team on June 30. On Aug. 3 the Cubs travelled to RHAM High School to play the Hebron Hops, the #1 ranked team in the division, in a best of three series, in the 1st round of the playoffs. The team battled hard and was ahead 5-4 going into the bottom of the 7th inning, but came up short after three straight doubles by the Hebron batters. In game two, the Cubs played well, but came up short losing both the game and the series.
Up next is the Connecticut Men’s North Senior Baseball League All Star game in September at Dunkin Donuts Park in Hartford. Four players and one coach will represent the Granby Cubs in that game. Check the Granby Cubs Facebook page for date and times as this is the league’s biggest fundraiser with all proceeds going to Wounded Warriors. The team would also like to thank its “double” and “triple” sponsors for the 2019 season: Signature Flight Support, Tim’s Automotive, Route 10 Tire, Carmon Funeral Home and Beacon Mechanical.
