Newsletter #10 2017/2018

With the best baseball venue in WA, and a perfect weather forecast, there is no excuse not to get down to Kevan Langdon reserve on Sunday to witness a fantastic day of baseball!   A number of dignitaries from the City of Stirling have been invited and our President may have some exciting news to share with regard to our facilities at Kevan Langdon!  This will be a great opportunity to watch some of the best players in the league, with the Braves on top and the “pietribe” in 4th spot. Come down, catch up with some old friends and possibly enjoy a light beverage or two.
Before our big day on Sunday, the State League 1 team take on 3rd-placed Gosnells Hawks at Baseball Park on Friday night.  The boys did have a Monday night game against South Perth (strange fixturing as all the other teams played Sunday) but this game was washed out. 
Club Night :   Roast turkey and gravy rolls   
Next match :            Sundays order of play is:
9.15 - State League 2
12.30 - State League 1 – Game 1 
3.15 - State League 1 – Game 2  
A Grade 
Lost to Wanneroo  : 6 – 7
This was a tight game with Wanneroo scoring first in the third and our boys fighting back in the bottom of the innings.  Wanneroo took a 4 – 2 lead after 5 innings and managed to hold on despite the Indians scoring in the last.  The 2 sides play each other again at Wanneroo this Sunday.   The A’s have slipped to 6th and will be desperate to avenge Sunday’s defeat.  
D Grade – West Stirling
Beat Wanneroo  : 11 – 7 
This was a game the boys always looked like winning.  Runs flowed fairly freely with the only nervous moment coming in about the 5th innings when a couple of hard hits on Camel saw the Giants score 4 runs.  With an 11 – 7 lead, Jacob Riou closed the game out like a pro.
