Brantford Red Sox Say Thanks For 2021 Season

by Brantford Red Sox staff

A message of thanks from Brantford Red Sox ownership

To Our Red Sox Community,

The IBL season is not over until a Champion is crowned, but it has come to an end for the Brantford Red Sox. 

After a very rough start this team worked hard together and finished the regular season a much stronger team, and to the delight of everyone, won the first round of the playoffs.  We are very proud of the Red Sox for their commitment to become a stronger team and advance to the semifinals. 

On that note we would like to thank our Players, and our Manager, Coaches, and Bat Boys - Matt, Paul, Nick, Tyler, Panther, Farley, Emmett and Corbin - for a great season.  We thank you for your patience and cooperation this year - you all made it happen because of your dedication to this team.  You are all very kind and respectful, and we are very lucky to have such a great bunch of guys that were here to play this game that we all love so much.  It was an absolute pleasure to spend our summer with you all and we can’t wait to do it again.  You are awesome!

To our fans, we thank you for supporting the Red Sox by spending your summer at the stadium with us.  We have met so many wonderful people and enjoy seeing you at the games.  Your boys of summer play for you all, and they sure do love the support of the fans!  We can’t wait to meet up with all of you next year.

To all of our sponsors,  we thank you for your dedication to this club and our community.  Your help allows us to the provide a family friendly venue for our the community, so thank you, for your generosity.  Without your support none of this would be possible. 

Last but not least, a HUGE thank you to all of our volunteers - our friends and family who work tirelessly throughout the season. You are the backbone of this club.  We have never worked with such a great bunch of people who are so committed to ensure our fans have a great time, and are always fun to be around.  No matter what hiccups happened, we figured it out and went on with the show.  You all give so much of your time and it’s a great pleasure to be surrounded by so many great people: Bryan & Crystal, Paul & Diane, Anne, Cheryl, Nadine, Ivadelle, Mary Ann, David, Reece, Colin, Wade, Jenna, Brady, Cameron, Chad, Tyler, Shawn & Jason. You are the best!

Sincerest thanks for a great season!

And good luck to Toronto & London in the Championship round!

Connie & Rick Pomerleau

And from the Brantford Red Sox online team (because they won't take credit themselves!), a huge thanks to Connie and Rick for their commitment to the community and the team, and their efforts to make this season happen. The Red Sox have been a Brantford institution for 110 years, and not having an IBL season in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic was a huge blow. The Pomerleau family worked tirelessly, and against a lot of adversity, to ensure that we fielded a team and presented a safe, quality game day experience this season. 

Please stay tuned to and all of our social media channels during this offseason for news on what lies ahead for 2022. Rick, Connie, Matt, Nick and the rest of the Brantford Red Sox crew are already planning towards making next season even better!
