Jeff Thiessen

From John Medrzycki, Umpire-in-Chief

It is with heavy heart that I inform you that Jeff Thiessen, a dear friend and a great umpire, passed away this past Monday.  He was 56.

I've known Jeff for more than 30 years, first as a business client, then an acquaintance, and finally as one of the best friends I've had...ever.  It was through umpiring that we forged our friendship, first running around not knowing what we were doing on Little League fields, to attending various clinics throughout North America to hone our skills, to working literally hundreds of games together throughout the Lower Mainland.  It was often said that when we were on a baseball field, Jeff knew what I was thinking before I even thought it, and vice versa.  Man, we were a team.  And, we looked sharp in our red/navy/gray/cream/pink shirts.

Jeff was diagnosed with Parkinson's 4 years ago, and saw a rapid decline in his ability to function physically.  He made the decision to undergo MAiD (Medically Assisted in Dying).  He died peacefully, surrounded by family, this past Monday, November 06 at 5:30.

I will miss him terribly.

18U AA VCB Mounties win the Western Canadian Baseball Championship

2022 18U AA Mounties in Estevan, Saskatchewan

August 21, 2022

The 18U AA Mounties completed their season in spectacular fashion, winning the Western Canadian Baseball 18U AA Championship, hosted by Estevan, Saskatchewan.

The score in the final game was 3-1.  Pitching for the Mounties was Mikey Norcott, an ace pitcher picked up from Ladner.  Norcott pitched 6 innings, allowing 1 run on 4 hits while striking out 7 batters.   Jaron Palaschuk pitched the final inning, striking out the last batter to end the game.

Morgan Fairweather, Lucas Smith, and Levi Soper drove in the runs for the Mounties, who scored two runs in the 4th inning and added an insurance run in the 6th inning.

Lucas Smith had an excellent game at first base, turning a 6-3-2 double play in the first inning, followed later by catching a line drive and doubling-off a runner on 1st.

Leading up to the Championship game, the Mounties defeated the host team from Estevan, 8-0, behind Ben Black's pitching.

In addition to Michael Norcott, the Mounties picked up Brennan Braddick and his coach father, Dan, from the Vernon Canadians.  Here's a link to a story about them in the local Vernon Morning Star newspaper.

18U AA Mounties are Provincial Champions!

2022 18U AA Mounties in Ladner

July 31, 2022

The Vancouver Mounties 18U AA team defeated a very strong team from Ladner in the Championship game today, 6-3.

Jaron Palaschuk started for the Mounties, allowing 2 runs on 2 hits in 5 innings.  Ben Black closed out the game, striking out 5 batters while allowing 1 run (unearned) in 2 innings.  It was an amazing display of pitching.

The Mounties also had some excellent defense from Kenta Milum at 3rd who fielded 2 hard-hit balls without making an error, as well as Morgan Fairweather, who caught the game, didn't allow a wild pitch or passed ball, and threw out a base-stealer at 2nd.

Offensively, the Mounties got hits from Lewis Sale, Ben Black, Jaron Palaschuk, Jack MacAulay, Morgan Fairweather, Kenta Milum, and Josh Epp.  Josh's hit really put the icing on the cake, as it came in the top of the 7th with 2 outs and runners on 2nd and 3rd.  Josh smacked an 0-2 pitch back up the middle, scoring both baserunners and putting the Mounties up 6-2 going into the bottom of the 7th.  Ladner did get a run back in their half of the 7th, but were unable to close the 4-run deficit.

The Mounties will be playing in the Western Canadian Championship tournament August 19-21, against teams from Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, as well as the host team from Estevan, Saskatchewan.
