Cujo’s Cubs captured the inaugural edition of the Grand River Raceway Snow-Pitch Tournament, staged in the track’s infield on Jan. 24.
Nine co-ed recreational teams battled under an overcast, and eventually foggy sky. As sunset approached, Cujo’s Cubs held a three-run lead over The Roasters heading into the final inning. The team held on to win by a single run.
Cujo’s Cubs includes several harness racing participants and the victorious line-up featured Rob Doyle, Scott Lecain, James MacDonald, Jacqueline Ellis, Jared Bothwell, Stephanie Yorke, Julie Walker, Don Johnson, Lee Ibey and Boyd Wilson.
The team is normally captained by Curtis (Cujo) MacDonald.
The champs won $300 plus a team party for dinner and races in the Captain’s Quarters dining room at Grand River Raceway during the 2015 race season, which begins June 1.
Grand River Raceway extends its gratitude to all of the tournament teams: GREAT In KW Meet Up, Booze On First, Cold Blooded, Sons of Pitches, Not The Benders, Where My Pitches At, The Zieglar’s, The Roasters and Cujo’s Cubs.
