The Herts Hawks find themselves in a battle to avoid finishing bottom of Division 1 South ‘B’ after losing both games of a double header against the Richmond Dragons.
The Hawks were missing a large part of their regular starting lineup which made their trip to Richmond even more daunting. In the first game the Hawks found it difficult to put together any kind of offensive effort and lost 10-3.
In the second game the Hawks found their rhythm and took the game to the Dragons. Despite falling behind they managed to catch up making it 8-7 in the 5th inning when the Hawks exploded with a 3-run home run by Hertfordshire Baseball Hall of Famer, Stuart Boast.
This wasn’t enough though and the Dragons took the win with a score of 14-10.
With one final weekend of regular season action remaining in Division 1, the Hawks now have a ‘must-win’ game at home against the Bracknell Blazers.
The 2007 baseball season has been wrecked by the bizarre weather conditions and similarly to the cricket season, the British Baseball Federation will now have to somehow deal with a backlog of rained-out games in time for the postseason.
