It has finally begun! The Beasts competed in their first tournament of 2019, the annual DreiTannenCup in Olten.
The team was made up of veterans and some brand new players who played for the Beasts the first time. The opponents in this years Cup were TruckStar, Orcas, Hunters and Flyers. The Beasts first faced off against the Flyers. The run production didn't start until the very last inning. Being back 0-2, Martin and Don got on base and Mike was able to get them home with a homer and Alex provided an insurance run with a follow-up HR. The story of the second game was about the same as the one of the first. The Beasts weren't able to get runs in until late. Thankfully, Jason and Martin provided the team with two two-run Homeruns to get the team the victory. Next, the Beasts got to play against the host TruckStar. Soon, the Beasts were back 1-4 against them. It took one big inning towards the end to turn that game around. one of our newcomers, Laura, came through with her very first career hit and game-winning RBI. Congrats on that note ;-) With those three victories, the Beasts still had to beat the Orcas to secure first place. Unfortunately, for ones the Beasts had to leave the field as a loosing team. That loss came with quite a sour note, as the Beasts had chances to take the game home. The team for once just committed too many errors in the field and left 6 runners on base. In the end though, the team can be really happy with its first tournament of the season, going 3-1 and taking 2nd place with a newly made up team :-)
The next appointment for the team will already be its Division II home tournament on April 27. Go Beasts.
