Shameko said “I grew on the softball field in Cooper’s Town with coach Niqel; he got me into baseball.” He said he would later move to Freeport where he was able to play every week.
After softball games were cancelled the night before, players eagerly looked forward to the double header scheduled on September 1 in Cooper’s Town. The first game featured was between the RJ Bonefish Runners and the Lady Sluggers. The first inning was dominated by the Lady Sluggers, who managed to secure a series of runs putting them in an early lead against their opponents. Although the Runners fought back and were able to accumulate a few runs, they were not enough to topple the Lady Sluggers who were on a roll by the final inning. In the end, the Lady Sluggers beat the RJ Runners: 14 to 6.
