The Van der Stel Baseball Club from Cape Town completed its tour of the Metro and locked heads against local clubs like VWBC, the combined Gelvan/Pirates club and Despatch Red Sox.

In the penultimate match, Despatch Red Sox was just too good for the Western Cape side. The combination of Daniel Coetzer, pitcher, and Keith Grobler, catcher, worked well for Red Sox, with Coetzer allowing 5 hits and hitting a homerun which changed the game in Red Sox’s favour. Other standout performers were young incumbent, Dylan le Roux, who pitched the closing frame against Van der Stel Baseball Club. Morné Minnie and Gertjie Coetzer also performed well for Red Sox on the day.

Dennis Transell, who umped the game, said it was a very nice game with Van der Stel fighting back till the end; however, Red Sox was victorious scoring 8-6.

Baseball returns to Despatch on Sunday, where defending champions, Red Sox will take on Pirates at 14:00 and VW Baseball Club will take on Park Tigers at 12:00.

All junior games will start at 09:00. Youngsters of the ages u/10, u/12 and u/15 are all invited to come and play ball. Entrance is free and all are welcome.

An u/10 Pirates team recently completed a tour to George where they played against 5 sides from South Western Districts and Western Province. They ended up winning 3 of the 5 games and a lot of experience was picked up by the youngsters. Standout performers were Damian le Roux and Stefan Bezuidenhout, who both hit home-runs during the tournament and they were well supported in the in-field by Dillon du Preez. - Terrence Gouws
