Troy Bodie didn't have to look at his stats to know he had a good night. That was obvious when Tim Leiweke came into the locker-room to congratulate him.
"He doesn't come in here often," he said of Leiweke, who is the president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment and Bodie's father-in-law. "So when he does, you take it."
Playing any major league squad is memorable for the Canadian junior baseball team but Tuesday's date with the Toronto Blue Jays is extra special.
Major league teams provide a variety of opposition against the Canadian juniors, with many fielding prospects. The Jays take it a lot more seriously than most.
Jays expected to figure in the game include Canadian Brett Lawrie, Adam Lind and Munenori Kawasaki and pitchers Brandon Morrow and Steve Delabar, among others.

EDMONTON - The Los Angeles Kings are looking very much like a team that has hit its stride heading down the stretch.
Jeff Carter had two goals and an assist as the Kings stretched their streak to seven wins in a row with a 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.
Alec Martinez and Trevor Lewis also scored for the Kings (37-22-6), who are now on their longest win streak since taking nine in a row in 2010.
MINNEAPOLIS - The Toronto Raptors have had every excuse to give in this season. They've had injuries to key players, turned the roster over significantly with an early season trade and had low expectations after a regime change portended a possible tear down and rebuild.
Kyle Lowry doesn't make excuses. Dwane Casey doesn't make excuses. And the Raptors haven't given an inch while climbing the Eastern Conference ladder.
