The recent growth in popularity of British baseball is not only responsible for the creation of the Herts Falcons' second team, but Richmond have also benefited to the tune of now fielding 4 teams.


On Sunday, the Falcons 2 travelled to Richmond to face the Riverdogs, Richmond's 4th team. Although both teams included a high percentage of rookie players, it was apparent early on that the Falcons were more talented, better coached, and had a stronger desire to win. Richmond were totally out-played in every department – batting, fielding, and pitching.


The Falcons got off to an early 2-0 lead and were 6-1 up after 2 innings. They continued to pile on the runs as the game progressed until the game was called after 7 innings on the Slaughter Rule with the Falcons 29-6 ahead.


This Sunday sees the Falcons 2 at home (Grovehill Playing Field, Hemel Hempstead) to play the Cambridge Monarchs 2. The game starts at 2.00pm (visitors are welcome).
