Ottawa’s Suds Buds & Windmills: Who Are We?
The Ottawa Suds Buds & Windmills (SBW) was established in 2010. At the time of its creation, the main goal was to provide co-ed opportunities to play safe recreational-level softball.
Now SBW has grown into a miniature league, playing softball while also adding Futsal, Volleyball and Ball Hockey to its roster. SBW also organizes annual softball tournaments, events and charity outreaches in the Ottawa region.
SBW continues to foster new friendships and provides new experiences to young Ottawa adults to play and grow as a team.
Over the years, SBW has grown and learned with the help of its sponsors:
Dinardo's Ski.Bike.Hike and
Katimavic Massage Therapy.
From Dan Bergeron:
We have a few teams needing girls on Sunday’s, therefore, we are looking for ladies to help us out by join another team at no cost, until they find a full time girl.
If interested, the teams are Soft Dump In Corner, No Regretzky’s, Goblins, Electric Mayhem and Price is Right.
Contact a captain for more info.
And please consi...
Our next game saw SBW taking on FO. SBW were missing a key piece this year as Dylan Cundell did not return, which left a HUGE hole in their scoring department. It took six minutes for the first goal, and it was SBW who potted goal numero uno, as Eric Delisle intercepting a pass wristed one five-hole, 1-0...
Our next game saw SBW taking on EM, who were playing their first of two games on the day. SBW would open the scoring as Jake Miron (Dylan who?) would backhand one in while walking out from the corner. New comer Kyle would take a high stick penalty despite a collective team effort into warning against them...
It was a gorgeous night for Softball in Ottawa, and the weather was much better than anticipated (cloudy forecast). The Bats Outta Hell came out strong and need to tip my cap as they performed exceptionally well on the defensive end and kept putting the ball in play. Despite being equipped with elite outfielders Aaron and Frank, balls were hitting gaps...
Much as how the season started, the playoffs also begin with playing the Lumberjacks. The Buds had to face off with the Jacks 3 times in the season and went 1-2. The opener was a heart breaker seeing the Buds losing in as the home team with two chances to seal the win with a home run.
All indications point to this being a tight affair and it was! The game s...
Rookie Aaron here…. I’ll give my best shot at a post game!
What a beautiful night for some playoff BUDSBall! It was a high pressure playoff game where the loser goes home! The BUDS did NOT want to go home.
The Buds started off the best way that any team could start on defense…..3 UP 3 DOWN…or should I say….4 UP 4 DOWN!
In the bottom of the inning,...
It was a beautiful night for a ball game as our SBW’s took on Dan and his Playboy Bunnies (plus a few strong additions). With the division locked up, Playboy mixed up their lineup with Dan pitching instead of holding down center field as usual.
Alex started the game strong catching a fly ball at rover to put Kevin away with the first at bat...
Friday A team is playing Bate island strikers. They start off with a solo at bat. We put up 4 in our half to lead after one. They came back with 4 to pull ahead at the end of the inning. Marty highlighted that inning by dropping a fly but managed to got the force out at second base...
If someone else wrote this post-game, I hope they would have written “Drew took the best pictures of his life”, because that’s what happened.
It’s hard to pinpoint the exact reason. Perhaps with the extra day off he took, but SBW finally got Drew into Pam Vanderson and to diamond 3 at the RA to capture photos for the Tuesday Rec Team...
It’s a Trap!
Pitch Please, is it a request for a pitch or some fun word play with all sorts of sass. The Buds actually got to find out this time as the best of the B decided to show up this time! It was also a welcomed return for Bud’s short stop Justyn with a “y” after being off for a month with a hamstring injury.
Game starts off with Alex Thomson...
