U9 Match Report – 24 Nov 2018

Tballers to the rescue
A great, tight fought win for U9s this weekend. With 4 regulars unable to take the field we had to call on some of the young guns from the Tball team to help us out. And help us out they did. Fantastic effort to step up in age group from Grand Slam Cam, Benny MacDonald, Iorwerth Evans and Xavier Hansen. Every Tballer registered at least 1 hit and impressively showed they’re ready for Machine Pitch by getting hits from the machine too. Iorwerth and Xavier had their first taste of behind the plate action also and bravely donned the catchers gear for an inning each. A great effort from all and we thank them for their help.
Jackson Corcoran had a huge day in the field gloving everything that came his way and effecting perfect throws to 1st for the outs assisted by Chase. Austin took a great catch at 3rd base and with quick thinking was nearly able to get the double play as the runner was slow to tag up back at 1st. Knox and Oliver were again our lead off batters and are scoring runs every week with good hits from the machine and soft toss and advancing around the bases. Chase showed his love of a run down tag out by racing after his base runner late in the game proving too quick for his prey. A great win.
Again special thanks to the parents, coach and tballers for helping us out.
