Athletics Bats Come Alive vs Lougheed
May 31, 2014, 8:54 am

The Rosalind Athletics took on the Lougheed Wildcats in the first game of the annual Heisler Sports Days Tournament.  The A's are in a round robin pool with Spring Lake and Lougheed; with Heisler, Armena, and Castor in the other pool.


Rosalind sent youngster Brayden Benson to the mound, and attacked the strike zone with the same enthusaism that he drives spikes in the Battle River Railroad. The sophmore tallied 5 strike outs in 3 innings of work.  Fellow Rosalindite, Brett Yuha, came in to close the game, throwing an unpresidented about of heavy fastballs down in the zone, and sawing off lefties with his curveball and cutter.


Not only did the Athletics bring a solid pitching and defensive effort, but the bats came alive, putting up 7 runs in the bottom of the first innings.  The Rosalind hitters continued to swing some hot sticks through out the lineup, until Lougheed brought in Barry Truss to slow down the A's offence.  Sheldon Pederson led the way with two doubles and a single, while S. Enright, Wheatley, Ronsko and N.Pederson each had two hits a piece as well.


Rosalind meets Spring Lake in game 2 of the round robin on Saturday morning at 11am.

Injuries a Factor, As Heisler Takes Game One
Jul 24, 2013, 8:02 am

For the third year in a row, the Rosalind Athletics would be meeting the Heisler Cardinals in the championship final of the Battle River Baseball League.   These two teams have been in the finals of the Alberta AA Provincial final 3 of the last 4 years, displaying the quality of talent in small town Alberta. Especially in the last 3 or 4 years, a healthy rivalry and mutual respect has developed between the A’s and Cardinals, much like the Yankees and Red Sox.



A sold out crowd, approximately 150 people, from Rosalind and Heisler area saw A’s pitcher Dan Enright get the start versus Nolan Miller for the Cards. Both pitchers have a solid arsenal, and have proven over the season to be more than capable of a game one finals start. However, both pitchers ended up getting knocked out early, after a multiple hits and a few walks. Rosalind led 5-4 after the bottom of the 3rd, with both teams going to their bullpens. Brayden Benson followed Enright, and went 2 1/3 allowing 3 runs in the relief appearance. Ryan Yuha closed out the game for the A’s, only allowing 2 runs the rest of the way. Overall, there were only a few pitches that the pitching staff would want back, compared to the homerun Cody Wolbeck hit out of the park, you have to tip your cap too.



Offensively, the Athletics were hot and cold for periods of the game. The third inning, in which Rosalind scored all their runs, the A’s batted around taking a 5-4 lead after a hot start by the Cardinals. However, from there on out, missed opportunities and multiple runners left in scoring position haunted the Athletics offence. Mark Gjesdal had the hot bat for the A’s, going 3 for 3 with a sacrifice fly. Tyrel Herder, Sheldon Pederson and Nic Ronsko contributed 2 hits each, while Kevin McDonald supplied a clutch 2 RBI double in the 3rd.



TSN could have had cameras rolling, as both teams many “Web Gem” highlight reel defensive plays that had the fans clapping and honking their horns. Mark Gjesdal and Tyrel Herder made diving catches in full flight. Devan Herder threw out a Rosalind runner at home in an attempted sacrifice fly. Obviously, fans can continue to be guaranteed high quality and exciting baseball from these Battle River teams for many years to come.



Injuries definitely played a roll in the outcome of the game for the Athletics, as Steve Enright pulled his hamstring running down to first on a ground ball in the first inning. Clayton Harbak continues to nurse a quadricep injury. The A’s were lucky to get Ryan Yuha back, after injuring his ankle on the final game of the regular season. As well, both Adam Enright and Josh Burnstad were also absent for the first game of the finals as well.



Ryan Yuha shared his thoughts on the game and the rest of the series, “There’s a lot of respect and competitive rivalry between these two teams. Wins rarely come easy, and tonight was no different. Heisler was able to capitalize more often than us, and when it comes right down to it, that’s why they won. Both teams know they need to play solid baseball every time we play each other and the rest of the series will be no different. Our games are always fun and intense because of that.”



Make sure you come out to Heisler on Thursday at 6:30, as the Athletics battle to bring the series back to Rosalind for a game 3! Tyrel Herder gets the start for the A’s in the elimination game.  "No excuses, we will be ready!"
