Following this 3-game series, there is a banquet to end off another great season.

The first trophy presentation took place on Sept 20, 2015 at the Queen Victoria Pub. 

Anne Oake (Shea) was on hand to be honored and see the trophy's debut.

Homes Publishing's Navy team was the first trophy recipient.

 

Steve Oake pictured above, holding the “Anne Oake” trophy, is also the Trophy’s sponsor.

Having a trophy was Steve idea alone, he promoted it and the league accepted.

How the Championship Trophy came to be

Steve's words:

“My Mom will celebrate her 95th birthday in November 2015.

She is a huge baseball fan. I’d like you to allow me to purchase a trophy for the league, championship, in her honor.

This will probably be the most exciting gift she ever received.”

 

The trophy is awarded each ball season at the banquet final and Anne Oake was able to attend the 1st awarding in 2015.
