Local Boy Joey Votto remembers the big game

Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds has played 456 games in the majors, 711 in the minors and hundreds on area sandlots.

His most memorable game?

Playing for the Bloordale Bombers and beating Martingrove in the Etobicoke playoffs as a 13-year-old.
My son has played for Bloordale and Martin Grove so Votto is a local boy for us.

Love this part of the article

Votto estimates that “if we played them 20 times over three years, they mercied us probably 18 times. A moral victory was when Bloordale played the whole game, without the game being stopped due to a lopsided run differential.

“They’d kill us,” Votto said. “I remember pitching and crying on themound down 17-1.”
