The Herts All-Stars will return to Finsbury Park 12 months after
missing out on the trophy in an epic 1-0 Final vs the London Mets.
Almost 12 months have passed since the Herts All-Stars lost 1-0 in the National Under-14 Final against rivals London Mets in heart-breaking fashion. The Herts youngsters are a year older, stronger and they have been waiting for this. The club’s four senior teams came short in the hunt for silverware this season so the hopes of everyone connected with Herts Baseball Club rest on the young shoulders of the Herts All Stars.
Images from last year’s Finals – the Herts All-Stars are now a year older, stronger…and they are searching for gold.
Like last year they will need to go through a series of postseason playoff games in order to get to the final. Once again there will be no room for error in these knockout games. It commences this Saturday, 11 September, at Finsbury Park, the home of the London Mets. They go into this Saturday’s playoffs with a regular season record of 6 wins and no losses, but they are yet to face the big guns in the competition.
The Herts All-Stars can once again count on the best
fans in the country supporting them every step of the way.
Their first opponents will be the Bracknell Broncos. The two teams met earlier in the season with Herts coming on top, but, as they say, the form book goes out of the window in the playoffs. If Herts can overcome Bracknell, they will meet the losers of the London Mets vs Forest Glade RedBacks game. The winner of that second game will go through to the National Youth Championships which will be held in Halton on 18 and 19 September 2010.
