The term “dynasty” was being tossed around after the Barrie Baycats had won their third consecutive Intercounty Baseball League title two years ago, but after last night’s convincing 6-3 win over the Kitchener Panthers to hoist their fifth consecutive Dominico Cup, there deosn’t seem to be any question about that statement now.
The Barrie Baycats completely dominated the Inter-County Baseball League in 2018. This, coming after winning four straight IBL Championship Series, it seems there is no team in the league that has the power of the Barrie Baycats or the answers to how to defend the Baycats commanding play. Kitchener gave it an excellent try during the final series especially through the first four nail-biter games of what turned out to be a very exciting 6 game series.
There’s no question the Barrie Baycats organization have built something very special here in Barrie as the team completely took control of the entire 2018 regular season, and have made the playoffs look almost easy on their way to winning their 5th consecutive IBL championships.
Congrats to all of the Barrie Baycat players, staff and management on your huge win and keep listening for details of a big fan celebration no doubt in the coming days.
