Kincardine host Hitmen tonight

Cubs, Astros battle at the top

By Josh Howald

The Kincardine Cubs held a three-point lead on the Mitchell Astros in the Thames Valley Senior Baseball League heading into a game tonight (Wednesday) at home.

Kincardine will host the Hanover Hitmen tonight at 8 p.m. on Tout Field at Connaught Park in Kincardine.

The Cubs are now 14-2 in regular season action after a slew of action in the last two weeks. On Sunday, Kincardine was in Ingersoll for a double header against the Blue Jays. Kincardine won both of those contests. The first game was an 8-1 final, while the score of the second game was unavailable as of press time. On Saturday the Cubs were in St. Thomas to take on the steadily improving Cardinals. Kincardine was still just too powerful for the Redbirds on Saturday, however, and posted a 9-4 win at Emslie Field.

Hate on display

A friend of mine was directly exposed to the words of hate uttered by the “so-called” preachers from London, Ontario. Good and earnest people, of faith or not of faith (and it makes no difference) embrace tolerance, inclusion and being each others’ keeper. My friend could not believe that such imported venom was on full display in the streets of Kincardine. Too often similar regressive behavior is on display in countless places around the world.
