About the League
The 2013 season will be the 28th year of play for the Tottenham Oldtimers Slo-Pitch League (TOT). The mandate of our league is to provide recreational baseball in a manner, which promotes the ideals of sportsmanship and friendship while minimizing the potential for injury. TOT is a non-profit organization and actively supports minor sports leagues along with various worthy organizations in the community.
TOT is a recreational slo-pitch league for men 35 years and older from the Tottenham, Beeton and surrounding communities. Teams are picked every year through a blind draft, offering players a chance to play with different teammates every season. Games are played at Keogh Park and Coventry Park in Tottenham and teams play once and occasionally twice a week with game nights scheduled Monday through Thursday. The regular season is culminated in mid September with a year ending playoff tournament taking place from Monday to Sunday.
The primary focus of the league is to have fun and interact socially with your neighbours while playing ball. This is reflected in our local rules that stress safety, the blind draft and the fact that all teams make the playoffs. Everyone wants to win and the playoffs are indeed competitive, however the competition is always friendly. The players, executive and alumni of the league take pride that our league promotes having fun as its first priority. There is no better testament in our mandate than the several players that have been actively playing in the league for the entire 26 years of its existence.
TOT is governed by Slo-Pitch National rules of play but some local rules have been adapted and are outlined in the Constitution. For more details and a full list of local rules please open this link to the TOT Constitution and review the section "Rules of Play".
TOT is always looking for new players, if interested please contact the league president, Jamie McClean.
