-Sad news to pass on from the Saints. Melissa Egilson a CMFL super-fan has succumbed to her illness. Melissa was the number one fan for 3 teams over the last several years as Lyal played for the Cavs, The Sharks and most recently The Saints. I doubt there's ever been a more staunch fan and loyal supporter of the CMFL. A true loss and she will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Condolences to all her family. Rest in Peace Melissa, I'm pretty sure you still have that score book in hand....

-A Go Fund Me Page has been set up for Rodger Miller’s son Brian who suffered a near fatal accident June 24th 2015. He suffered a severe spinal cord injury and is a C-4 Quadriplegic. They are raising funds to help cover the high costs of extensive renovations that are needed to their home as well as money to purchase an accessible van.
The league was formed in the summer of 1964 when some friends living on one bay in Crestview challenged friends from another bay to an afternoon recreational ball game. Little did anyone realize that this was the beginning of a community men’s fast ball league that would span 50 years to become one of the longest standing men’s fastball league in North America.
Originally families and friends played with no real rules or uniforms, just folks having fun. As time went on and word of the games got out the league began to develop into the Crestview Men’s Fastball League; allowing teams to recruit player only from their respective streets or bays. Now a-days the league boundaries are a little wider but stay true to the neighbourhood with the majority of the approximately 180 members in the league living in the Crestview, St. James and Charleswood area. The league has progressed to a ten team competitive men’s fastball league comprised of fathers playing with sons and brothers playing against brothers.
The community spirit of the original teams continues with many team names still identifying the original bay or street they were founded around, such as the Hilary Blues, Voyager Hawks, Westwood Royals and the Cavaliers. There is one player in the league who played in the original year at the age of 19 and is still playing in the league this year. We bet he has some great stories to tell!
Garvie on a mission!
