Softball games continued on June 15 with Simple Solutions playing their first game for the season against DNR Sluggers. Although the game got off to a late, and a rough, start, players became more enthusiastic as the game went on. DNR achieved a slim win against Simple Solutions. They scored nine runs; and Simple Solutions scored eight.
In the featured game between the TC Jets and the Hope Town Wreckers, the veteran North Abaco team was not so accommodating. The Jets edged away with 16 runs to beat the Wreckers, who scored four runs.
Then on June 21, a game was scheduled for the women’s teams – Abaco Groceries Diamond Dollz and Team LA, but Team LA was a no-show. Simple Solutions faced the Creter’s Bulldogs in the final game of the night. This time, they managed to score two runs, but it was far from enough to topple the Bulldogs’ nine runs.
The following night, June 22, Creter’s Bulldogs played again against the Hope Town Wreckers. Errors clouded the Bulldogs’ game giving the Wreckers time to advance during the innings particularly in their defensive mode. After seven innings, though, the Creter’s Bulldogs triumphed over the Wreckers winning the game 4 to 1.
Now this weekend, fans will enjoy an All-Abaco Tournament at the Murphy Town Ball Field where all Abaco teams will be represented. Also scheduled to play are men’s softball team, AAA Razorbacks, and women’s softball team, Gilly Girls, from Spanish Wells as well as the New Providence Softball Association’s Men’s Championship Team: the Bommer G Truckers out of Nassau.
Games begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 28 with the last game scheduled for 10 p.m. On Saturday, a full slate of games has been arranged with the first game between DNR Sluggers and Razorbacks at 10 a.m. ending with the Terez Gas Angels vs. Team L.A. at 4:30 p.m. The evening will feature playoff games and single eliminations starting at 6 p.m. The concessions stand will be open and entertainment will be provided on site by Abaco’s best deejays.
