As many of you may know Amherst Veterinary hospital has been proudly sponsoring a Majors team, the “Amherst Vets,” within the Dunbar Little League for many years now.
The Dunbar Little League is a baseball association in its 59th season, comprised of 43 teams. Players, coaches and parents dedicate a tremendous amount of effort and commitment to their seasons, developing valuable skills, sportsmanship and above all having fun!
This year, the “Amherst Vets” hard work and dedication really paid off when they won the championship game of the Majors Division this past Saturday June 11th! It has been quite a few years since the Amherst Team was in the Dunbar Little League final; in their semi-final game they secured a close win (15-13), to become the underdogs against Buntain Insurance Agencies Ltd in the playoff finals. In the final game they won 8-3 and took home the championship title. Go Amherst Go!
Before the winning game, the closing ceremony and parade took place, a highlight in the community. All teams, coaches and volunteers paraded down Dunbar Street and arrived at Memorial Park for a day of celebrations.
We couldn’t be happier for the “Amherst Vets” and wish all the players a wonderful summer!
