BOSL - 2018 League of the Year Award from Slo-Pitch Ontario
It was with great pride that BOSL received the 2018 League of the Year Award from Slo-Pitch Ontario at their AGM Sunday, Nov 24. Shown at the presentation of the Award here are Ron Hawthorne (President SPO), Scott Sinclair (VP BOSL), Ron Evinou (President BOSL) and John Ariss (Director SPO). The award honours and recognizes the over 20+ years that BOSL has been part of SPO, as well as providing the older and more experienced slo-pitch players in Burlington the opportunity to continue to play the sport they love, to keep active, and enjoy the competition and camaraderie league play provides.
2018 League of the Year
We are delighted that the Burlington Oldtimers Slo-Pitch League is one of three leagues in Ontario being named as an SPO League of the Year for 2018, in part to honour and recognize the over 20+ years that the league has been part of our Association, as well as providing the older and more experienced slo-pitch players in your area the opportunity to continue to play the sport they love, to keep active, and enjoy the competition and camaraderie league play provides.
We are grateful for your continued support of our Association, and appreciate all of the work that goes into managing, administering and overseeing any league. No matter the size of it, we know how much time and effort it takes. We realize that with family, friends, resposnibilities and other challenges that any volunteer has, the giving of so much of one’s free time in order that others may benefir, deserves to be observed and recognized.
Yours in Slo-Pitch,
Tom Bucham, CEO
Slo-Pitch Ontario Association

Join us in supporting our brother Mike Silva and his family
I'm reaching out to the BOSL community to ask for your support. Mike Silva (aka Chilie) has been a former captain and player of BOSL
In May 2018 Mike was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma at the age of 48. What started out as a pretty good outlook, needing only 3 rounds of chemo and 35 rounds of radiation quickly took a turn for the worse. The cancer has spread to Mike’s bones and he is undergoing another 4 rounds of chemo with the hopes of maintaining the cancer and keeping it from spreading. Mike will never be cancer free. He has his good days, and bad days where the pain is extreme. Mike has been unable to work since June.
Will you join us in showing your support for Mike Silva and his family?
A fundraiser is being held on Saturday, January 26th at Milton Bible Church @ 7:00pm to support Mike and his family as he battles stage 4 cancer. We are hoping to alleviate some of the financial worry to allow Mike and family to focus on themselves, making great memories. Mike has 4 children, 2 in their early 20’s: Kennedy and Braeden, an 8 year old son named Jackson and a 4 year old daughter named Addison.
If you are interested in attending the fundraiser, I'm selling tickets on behalf of the fundraising committee. They are $20 each. If you’re interested in buying tickets, please message me (email@example.com or text 905-467-9480). If you aren't able to attend the fundraiser, we hope you'll consider a donation via Mike's Go Fund Me Page and/or will think healing thoughts for him and his family.
