The Terriers Helping Their Community
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Wednesday, December 17, 2008
The food drive was a tremendous success. Participating players and families collected a total of 624 food items and $168 in cash. The cash was collected through donations, the Terriers Trivia Game, and the Family Throwing Challenge. Alex Halayko won a free pair of cleats, courtesy of Al's Factory Shoe Warehouse in Brantford, for individually bringing in the most food items. While Austin Huibers might not be fond of homework, he obviously spends lots of time studying the Terriers website.

Austin scored an impressive 38/40 on the trivia nudging out Matt Betts who score a 37. Terriers pitchers', Huibers and Betts, close to perfection knowledge of Terriers history, players and accomplishments is 'striking' to say the least. First up in the Family Challenge was the Huiber's entry. Helped out by a Brandon Dailey 83mph, off-season fastball, the Huibers team combined for 191mph thanks to a Marcia Huibers 53mph cannon. The taste of victory held strong for several of the ten entries until the Ralston family, helped out by Aaron Wagner, combined for 193mph. Terrier Mom, Heather Ralston claimed bragging rights by topping out the mothers' competition with a 58mph slider. Clearly the baseball genes are maternal in the Ralston family. A last minute entry to the challenge by the Stubbs family stole what appeared to be certain victory for the Ralstons. A strong Stubbs family performance secured the win with a combined velocity of 198mph thanks to a Joel Stubbs 86mph fastball. Thank you to all of the players and their parents for making this event such a great success!
