In these posts I will cover my travels around the Ontario region following the girls fastpitch team, the Pickering Heat, as they embark on their quest for a chance to compete at the National level, representing Ontario. Good luck ladies!

It was Pink in the Park day at the U16 Provincials in Guelph, ON. The Pickering Heat, although they didn't qualify for Nationals, get top marks for being the only team to openly support the drive to end breast cancer.
The team, decked in their raspberry pink uniforms, look on as their fellow teammate Danielle prepares to blast one into the field.
I am traveling to Guelph, Ontario for the U-16 Tier 1 Grand Championship girls fastpitch provincials. Put on by the Provincial Women's Softball Association of Ontario (PWSA) and held at the Guelph Lakes Facility from July 26-28, 2013.
