Surfers Paradise Baseball member Pat McDonald pulled out his specialised drone to capture some images of the wonderful facilities at Surfers Paradise Baseball Club. These images were captured the day after the 2018 Pan Pacs Masters Games had finished, so the ground was in immaculate condition.
GBL Division 1 CHAMPIONS!!
A huge congraulations to Matt Corbitt and his Bluewave team
In a best of 3 series against Windsor, the boys have come out on top 2 wins to 1.
Friday we went down to Windsor 11 – 6 but not before we played very well against some of the pitchers in Australia
Sunday was a beauty. Down 4 nil, Matt Studeman came up trumps with a grand slam 4 run home run. The game stayed tied until the 10th when Natt Cunningham and Ozzy Braff got on bases and Scott Hillier drilled one out to right field. Natt flew around the bases and slid in for the winning run and a scoreline of 5 – 4.
The rain threatened to interfere with game 3. Wednesday was postponed and Thursday we moved to Windsor. In a great pitching duel between Ryan Searle of Windsor and our very own Sam Brunner the game remained tied until the 4th When Shane Thompson took Searly deep and put us up 1 to nil. Players were on and off the field and got back on to play enough innings to make this a game when the game was called due to more rain.
Well done to all.Thank you Matt, Kevie, Connie, Bette and all the players. And thank you to all the suppoters who got along to support the boys. Presentation night is next Thursday and should be a great night.
