Carillon Minor Baseball was awarded Baseball Manitoba Region of the year.
Louis Côté touched on the dedication of the volunteers in the region along with a strong commitment by each community to field teams as the main reason for a growth in the baseball in within the Carillon region. This award represents every player, volunteer, parent and fan that make the Baseball season possible.
Louis Côté will be awarded Baseball Manitoba Volunteer of the year.
Louis Côté, co-president of the CMBA, has been instrumental in the development of the Carillon Minor Baseball Association as it is today. Louis' devotion to the sport of baseball has be seen at every level, from the organization of the Grand Slam program all the way up to the Midget AAA level. Louis was a big part of the change that occurred at the Grand Slam level where he pushed for smaller teams to get every kid involved and playing which has paid divident with the growth in the number of kids playing baseball. His calm demeanour, his love for the game, and his ability to deal with kids of all ages has driven him to do all that he does for Carillon. Everything that he does is to provide opportunities for all kids to play ball and to compete
