I Hope Baseball Quebec is still active....
I played baseball my whole childhood in Pointe-Aux-Trembles and I recently went back for a tournament and was surprised to see things are still going well over there. There's still some hope, but very little... Where I live now, the cities have to merge to make a team and play against other merged cities. It's sad to think one day I'm going to want to take my kids to the park and throw a ball, like my dad did, and his dad did to him, only to have him want to play soccer instead because that's the reality of it... Baseballs no longer an option in alot of areas.
