2018 Scholarship Award Winners

2018 Scholarship Award Winners

Congratulations to Tyler Sanders and Ryan Mackenzie who were awarded the 2018 LMBA Scholarship at the Delta Secondary School Commencement ceremonies.   We wish them the very best as they finish off the Midget summer season and move on to post-secondary education in the fall.  We are so proud of you, Tyler and Ryan!  

James Paxton Receives Some Love From Ladner

We are so proud of James for becoming one of the most dominate pitchers in the big leagues and in recognition of his no hitter against the Blue Jays last month we delivered a beautiful card and baseball jersey to let James know that everyone in the LMBA is rooting for him. As a product of Ladner Minor Baseball he is an inspiration to all the boys and girls who love to play the game.

Opening day a success despite mother nature!

The weather didn't stop many players, coaches, and families from enjoying our Opening Day ceremonies this morning at Cromie Park. Player Agent and MC, Todd Allan welcomed teams and spoke of the many accomplishments of last year's LMBA teams.  Our U18 Midget AA All Star team finished a strong season as  provincial silver medalists, going on to represent BC in a Washington State tournament.  Our Bantam AAA took home gold in provincials while our Bantam AA single season team were also silver medalists.  Coaching our Bantam AA team was our President, Grant Laidlaw, who was named Bantam Coach of the Year by BC Minor. 

Each year, we recognize those players who have graduated from the LMBA and we were proud to have several of our 2017 players out this morning to receive their commemorative jersey.  Coach Ray Beisick also received a special commemorative jersey celebrating his many years of coaching as well as his twelve years of serving on the LMBA Executive.  Our gratitude to Ray, his wife, Carrie, and his family for the countless hours dedicated to Ladner Minor Baseball.  We wish the Beisick family the very best in their new home in Calgary.  

A moment of silence was held for Delta baseball player, Kyle Losse, and the Humboldt Broncos.  Our thoughts are with these families at this very difficult time.  MLA Delta South, Ian Paton was on hand to throw out the first pitch of the season.  

We thank everyone who braved the rain and came out today.  With over 500 players registered for the 2018 season, we look forward to this year with much anticipation.  

Thank you,

LMBA Executive

Coaches Caravan a huge success in Ladner!

The players and parents in Ladner were blessed by the warmth of the sunshine on Friday evening as the BC Baseball Coaches Caravan hit the diamond for more family fun.

Ladner founding member James Paxton and current president Grant Laidlaw were on site to witness the enthusiasm that 225 parents and players brought out to prime the 2018 baseball season. There was an aura of pride surrounding the two as they took in the evidence of strong growth in the Ladner baseball community.

One of the many highlights of the Coaches Caravan is the inclusion of parents as they get on field with their sons and daughters to work on athletic skills. Youth baseball is a sport that encourages an active lifestyle on and off the diamond. Having parents participate in the Coaches Caravan not only empowers them to join the players in the stands but it also tools them with sound drills and techniques to apply as coaches on field and at home. BC Baseball continues to uphold the commitment to the grassroots of baseball by providing this experience at no cost to participants or the host association.
