The Member Statement that Maguire gave in the House of Commons read:
Mr. Speaker, it is my honour to rise today and pay tribute to the Baldur Regals Senior Baseball team who earlier this month were inducted into the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame.
As the Member of Parliament for Brandon-Souris, I wish to congratulate all of the players, coaches, and supporters on being bestowed this worthy distinction.
The Baldur Regals have been on a tear and won the Border West Senior AA Baseball League Championship in six consecutive seasons, from 2007 to 2012.
And they recently captured three Manitoba provincial Senior AA Crowns and in 2009, they won the Western Canadian AA Senior Championship.
As in many rural small communities, baseball is a rite of passage and in Baldur, Manitoba, and indeed all of Westman it is no different.
So it is with great pride that we are able to celebrate their accomplishments in the House of Commons and to wish them success as participants and hosts of the Western Canadian Senior AA Baseball Championships this August 21 to 23 in Baldur, Manitoba.
Westman is proud of them, and I know all members of this House wish them all the best in the years to come.
