One of the first youth baseball teams was formed to participate in the Royal Canadian Legion Peewee Tournament at the CNE Fairgrounds in 1956.  Newmarket is proud to have entered teams every year since.  The annual Legion CNE Peewee Baseball Tournament is the most prestigious and oldest event of its kind in the province for 12-13 year olds. Thirty-two teams from Toronto (TBA) and Southern Ontario (OBA) compete over nine days in a 31-game, single elimination event. Games take place at the CNE Ball Park at the west end of the grounds starting on opening day.  Click on the picture at the left to see more about the CNE Peewee Tournament.

Newmarket Baseball Association has hosted the prestigious Silver Bat Tournament for Mosquito (Tyke) aged players (10-11 year olds) since 1975.  The tournament has hosted up to 32 teams from all over Canada and the USA. 

Francis Hollingsworth was the founder and honourary president from 1950 to 1959.  The Newmarket Baseball Association was formed in 1960, and was incorporated in 1986.  The 2010 Registration is just over 900 players.  A dedicated group of 10-15 volunteers are on the Executive Board, planning, scheduling, teaching and organizing the teams, coaches and umpires from the beginning of October to the end of September every year. Executive members are elected at the Annual General Meeting.
