The Comox Valley Cubs 55+ men’s baseball team is travelling to the Roy Hobbs World Series in Fort Myers, Florida from Nov. 4-12.

 

The Valley lads make up 90 per cent of the team, with Dave “Skippy” Fauteux at the helm. This is the third year the team has gone to the Roy Hobbs and they plan on many more, although next year or the year after the team will be in the 60+ division. Keep an eye on the paper in November for news from Fort Myers.

The Cubs would like to thank local businesses for their sponsorship donations: Toneff Funeral Services, Goods Grocery, Thrifty Foods, Super Klean, Powerhouse Auto Recycling, The Joint Physiotherapy, and Engrave It.

 

Any business interested in helping the team out can call the dealmaker J.B. “Jake” Plante at 250-702-3337 (your call will be returned) or e-mail jake.plante@forces.gc.ca.
