Concord PCBL B gradw - Round 5 Vs Carlingford Report


Wasn’t the best conditions for our second game at the Thunderdome this season. The 30 degree heat and strong winds weren’t ideal to face the top team Carlingford, but it didn’t seem to phase the boys in white. Caley got us on the board early with a 3 run bomb to centre - right field. And not his only one of the game, going deep a second time in the 4th. His defence was just as good with a few great plays, one from his ass but wasn’t given the call. Truly the new ‘Hero.’

Unfortunately, the batting couldn’t be replicated throughout the lineup with a total of 7 K’s recorded for the game. Although 4 out of the 7K’s were blown calls by the umpire, Alex said it was the first time in 4 years or so that he’s go down looking.
Anthony, Joel, Danny, Matt and myself also struggled to put bat on ball. With Joel getting rung up twice on pitches well off the plate.
Dylan proved crucial in the field with some amazing plays at 2nd. His batting was strong until a dive back into 1st on a pickoff saw him retire from the game injured.

The base umpire’s calls weren’t as great as his get up, with a number of bad calls going either way. One in particular with Dan B getting picked off at 1st with an inch of glove between his foot and the base. Surprising that the first baseman stayed in the game after all the grief he gave the base ump. But we weren’t complaining. 
The game finishing 9-3. A very solid defensive game from the boys, however the batting could do with a boost. Although it wasn't the best performance from the former Div leaders but largely due to an exclellent defence peeformance by us. I’m sure in future games they won’t be such a push over.

Winners:
- Us
- The Don Tony
- The umpire in shorts
- Caley’s batting stats

Losers:
- Carlingford
- Carlingford’s 1st baseman
- Dylan and his knee
- Joel’s batting average

Wishing Ken a Speedy recovery.


As some of you know, our Canteen manager Ken was ill last week and unable to look after the canteen last Saturday, we wish Ken a Speedy recovery and home to see him back soon. 

Thanks to all of those that helped cover for Ken on Saturday including our wonderful juniors that lent a hand and did a fantastic job. It's great to see our juniors step up and contribute to the running of our club. 

BBQ Duty

 
The committee appreciates the work done on the BBQ and thanks all those that help, whether they are rostered on or asked to assist. Without this method of raising funds, the committee would need to resort to higher fees, selling raffle tickets and asking for a significant amount of financial support. Please note that this helps the club keep fees low and helps fund equipment. At the end of the day this will affect your pocket, so keep up the good work!

Also if you are able to take a picture of what is happening with your mobile phone even better.

In regards to baseball a reminder that the first team to play on the diamond is required to set up the field then rake the field after along with cleaning out the dugout they occupied. The last team on the diamond is required to pack up the field, rake the diamond and clean out there dugout.
