November 28, 2004, The 5th annual Burnaby Bulldogs Awards night and wrap up party was held on Friday, November 26th at the Lougheed Village Pub and Grill in Burnaby. Nearly 85 people attended and were treated to an evening of fun, friends and general good times. Awards were given out for both our Junior and Senior teams with the winners being recognized and listed on the respective team web pages. The Senior Bulldogs also chose to recognize a couple of former players for their contributions to the program in our building years. Barry Demarco and Gord MacInnes were recognized for the lengthy involvement with the Bulldogs Baseball Club. Barry was an instrumental part of the building of the team between 1990 and 2000. Barry served as an assistant coach for many of those years and managed to put up some impressive stats while doing so...lifetime average around .400, No-Hitter in the 1994 Pacific Metro Baseball League Playoffs in Richmond against North Shore and some of the best outfield play ever seen at Central Park (former home of the Burnaby Bulldogs). Gord played a total of 12 seasons for the club, starting in 1988 and also ending up in 2000. Gord can be remembered for his quiet yet strong leadership and his always TEAM FIRST approach. Gord played both Outfield and First Base while with the team and can still be identified as 'The Guy' who rattled baseballs off of the Skytrain Tracks behind Central Park on a regular basis. The Bulldogs would like to thank Wes and his team at the Village for a job well done and everyone who attended this years event. In addition to the team at the Village, we would like to further ackknowledge the Event Photographer Tony Rodrigues for all of his help and John Jefferson for his donation of the Propane Fire Pit. Event Photos will soon be available and posted on the respective web pages. October 15, 2004 The 2004 edition of the Burnaby Bulldogs was once again very successful on the field, compiling an overall record of 39 wins and 15 losses. A considerably better showing at this years Baseball Canada Senior Championships in Moncton, New Brunswick and a trip to the Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament at the end of August are certainly high-lites from the summer. However the most memorable game played in 2004; and quite possibly Bulldog History, was played in early September against a traveling team From Chinese Taipei. While the 'Dogs were not able to sneak out a win against the strong side from Taiwan, they did take a lead into the 7th inning in a well played game by both teams. It is the clubs hope that this will not be the last time they are able to play teams of this calibre and would like to once again thank everyone involved in putting this game together. Individual performances worthy of special mention this summer include first year players Jon Bosnick (University of Texas at Arlington) who led the Bulldogs in hitting and Sean Hotzak (Armstrong Atlantic University) along with Jeff Sheppard (2004 Bulldogs MVP), Trevor Murray and Mike Sinclair. The Burnaby Bulldogs would also like to take some time to thank those players from the Pacific Metro Baseball League, British Columbia's best Senior League, for all of their time and energy. We simply could not offer up the results without your involvement. Special thanks to Trevor Johnstone, Tyler Sharpe and Scott Nehaj (Vancouver Pharaohs); Mark Dorrington and Clay Premack (Surrey Mariners); Mike Lazuruk, Waleed Elabed, Matt Kittleson and Cav Whitely (UBC Alumni); Travis Phillips (Richmond Auto Body Budgies) and Rob Gauthier (Coquitlam Angels). In addition to the players listed above, the 'Dogs would like to especially thank Grant Matsuda (Vancouver Pharaohs) and Dave Diachuck (Surrey Mariners) for the help at the Provincials in Trail...your insight and energy made it easy for the rest of the staff. Finally, we would like to acknowledge the following players from around the province...We hope you enjoyed your time with us...Brad Rogers (Nanaimo); Sean Murphy (Victoria); Steve McRea, Will Devick and Paul Wourms (Kamloops). September 15, 2004 The Burnaby Bulldogs and PMBL All-star additions lost a very close game against a traveling team from Chinese Taipai by a score of 2-1. A run scored in the first inning (Keith Radix, Burnaby Bulldogs) looked as if it would be enough as Trevor Johnstone (Vancouver Pharaohs), Rob Gauthier (Coquitlam Angels), Trevor Murray and Mike Sinclair (Burnaby Bulldogs) worked their way through the Chinese lineup. A bloop hit plated the winning run in the top of the 7th inning to beat the local team. The Burnaby Bulldogs and the PMBL would like to thank the Chinese Taipai Baseball Association and consultant Oliver Wu for the opprotunity to play this highly skilled and extreamly classy team. We hope that this exibition will be the first of many such games played between the PMBL and traveling teams. We would also like to thank the Surrey Amature Baseball Association, Rick Williams and the Surrey Mariners, Chuck Baily, and the folks at Whalley Stadium for the tremendous job with game day operations. August 15, 2004 The Burnaby Bulldogs are the 2004 British Columbia Senior Men's Champions!!! The 'Dogs did it again in Trail by winning 4 straight and defeating a scrappy Victoria team in the final. Tournament MVP honours were won by Jeff Sheppard, who had 6 hits with 2 home runs. Jeff drove in 9 runs and scored 6 more himself. Also contributing big offensively was tournament Top Hitter, Jon Bosnick, who was 8 for 12.
