July 14th 2019

By Annelies Cooper (Garrison)

On a sticky July Sunday, the Dreamers gathered under a waxing moon in Sagittarius with an optimistic outlook and a hope that the balls would be thrown in their favour that night, 3 of our rivers and one little creek converged at the Trinity Bellwoods Sky-Dome.

Would the Undead Don River run down the Garrison Glimmer with an apocalyptic outbreak of hits and runs? Would the signature Credit River Care Bear Stare give the Rouge Racoons a serious scare?

The Dreamer’s Tribune: On hitting 100 or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the game

By Navjeet Sidhu

Joe DiMaggio. Jackie Robinson. David Hasselhoff. Oprah. Nav. 

What do these people all have in common? 


Webster’s Dictionary defines greatness as: “the quality or state of being great (as in size, skill, achievement, or power)”. 

It also defines “gratness” (which is what I initially typed in) as: “The word you’ve entered isn’t in the dictionary. Click on a spelling suggestion below or try again using the search bar above.”


Many people said reaching 100 hits could not be done and that I should just quit. I will call these people “my mom”. Nevertheless, I persevered, remembering the wise words of Aristotle: “Never say never”….or was that Justin Bieber? I always mix up the two….

Even now, the skeptics and naysayers will accuse me of using “performance enhancing substances” to reach this milestone. Well if team spirit and camaraderie mixed with tetrahydrogestrinone is considered “performance enhancing” then I guess I am guilty! 

All this to say I’ve been truly honored and grateful to play with some amazing and supportive teammates over the years, both in the FOD and the many iterations (ABL!) that came before it. And of course a shout out to Craig as well for sharing his infectious love and spirit for the game! See you on the slopes!

July 7th 2019


The second half of the 2019 season began this Sunday with a perfect sunny evening that pushed a cool breeze from Lake Ontario over the field. Trinity Bellwoods’ finest frizbee players were playing some down temp deep house and the Field of Dreamers flooded the field in anticipation for the dog days of summer.

In the early match, the Don River Don of the Dead were hoping to call like their namesakes (The Zombies) to the other dugout “What’s your name? Who’s your daddy? Is he rich like me?” while the Credit River Care Bears were just really trying to give a quick moral lesson within their 11 minutes + commercial break. In the late match, the Garrison Creek Glimmer we preparing to explore the deep spaces of the cosmos while the Humber River Haze were trying to explore the deep sounds of Jimi Hendrix’s seminal album “Are You Experienced?”

The Dreamer’s Tribune: Devin Clancy reflects on reaching 200 ABs

The sun has gone down, the lights are on, the pitcher releases the ball and SMACK!!! 200 at-bats.

Wow, what a time. 200 at-bats means *at least* 200 pitches from amazing players, and nearly 200 catches and outs ; )

I couldn’t have made this milestone without all you dreamers. So, as the great sex-rock icons Aerosmith say:

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Dream on
Dream on
Dream on
Dream until your dreams come true
Dream on
Dream on

June 30th 2019 – Pride Games


On a bright and sunny Sunday that radiated the sunshine of Tyler Chartrand’s yellow Pride uni-colored t-shirt, the queers, the base prancers, the sign stealers, the skirt sliders, the baseball crybabies, the girlie throwers, the dyke sluggers, the come-from-behinders (thanks Sena!), and those who prefer to be dugout gathered on the SkyDome field decked out in glitter, unicorns, and a glowing sign that announced the purpose of those who assembled. It exclaimed: “Let’s Queer Baseball!” and that is exactly what happened on this final day of June!

In a rain-out re-match, the Rouge River Raccoons would try to dig themselves out of the dumpster against the Garrison Creek Glimmer, while the sparkles and shines from Garrison vied to turn their lone star into a constellation with a 2nd consecutive victory. Meanwhile, in the evening re-matchup, the Don River Don of the Dead were planning an afterlife party should they be able to wade through the thick fog of the feisty Humber River Haze.
