2023 Minor ball season has wrapped!
And just like that, the 2023 minor ball season has officially come to an end! Brussels Minor Baseball Executive Committee wants to congratulate all of our players, coaches, team managers, parent reps, parents, umpires and all other volunteers for making this season such a success!

We are proud to see our young players develop so much talent and skill, create such strong bonds as a team and display great sportsmanship throughout the season.
To those who stepped up to coach or manage teams, Brussels Minor Ball wouldn’t be able to run without you. Your dedication to creating a fun, competitive and inclusive environment for these kids does not go unnoticed and we cannot thank you enough for your time and commitment.
Special shout out to the following teams for their strong finishes at their year-end tournaments:
U13 boys - Gold!
U13 girls - Silver!
U15 boys - Silver!
The Committee also wants to recognize several Executive members who are stepping down this year after providing years of support:
- Jodi Houston, President
- Liz Hickling, Treasurer
- Amanda Johnston, Registration
- Jen Nicholson
Thanks to each of you for your contributions to Minor Ball. You’ve left big shoes to fill, but also provided the support, knowledge and leadership to effectively hand over the reigns. You always have a place at our table.
And we’d like to welcome a couple new members to the Executive Committee as well:
- Andrew Baker, Ball Clinics/Equipment
- Michael McDonald, Ball Clinics/Equipment
Big thanks to the Citizen for covering several of our ball events this summer (make sure to grab a copy of this week’s issue!), and to Jillian Houston for taking some amazing shots of our littlest ball players earlier this spring on Minor Ball Day (photos to follow).
We look forward to opening registration for the 2024 season in January. Please stay tuned to the Facebook page and the website (www.brusselstigersfastball.ca) for more information in the coming months.
