Terriers Say Thank You On Opening Day!
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, May 1, 2010
Sunday May 2, 2010 The Terriers kicked off the 2010 PBLO season at Riverside Park in Cambridge on Sunday. The Opening Day activities included an open skills competition for youngsters in local minor baseball associations, a food drive, prizes, live anthem singer and the presentation of the" Ed Heather Award" for Volunteer of the Year. The morning kicked off with the target throwing contest. It was won by Matt Heggie of the Cambridge Cubs.

Adam Cook, also from the Cubs won the roadrunner contest with a time of 8.85 seconds from second base to home plate. Both boys were presented with winners plaques. All participants received Terriers t-shirts and caps. Thank you to everyone that generously donated over 250 food items to the Cambridge Food Bank. Further, there were 40 prizes distributed to fans throughout the day. Thanks to all the prize donors! After a fantastic live version of Oh Canada by local recording artist Glenn Groves, the Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to John Benvie for his life time commitment to community baseball. Congratulations John! The first pitch was thrown out by Mr. Walt Jeffries. Walt played professional baseball in the St. Louis Cardinals organization and was a long time scout for the Toronto Blue Jays. A special thanks goes out to the Dailey family for organizing the days festivities. The Jr + Sr Terriers will play most home games at Dickson Park on weekends and Riverside Park on Wednesday nights. Their PBLO schedule runs through May and June before both teams hit the tournament circuit this summer.
