2012 is turning out to be one of the most exciting in Herts Baseball Club’s history. We are about to go into the most thrilling part of the 2012 baseball season and Herts teams will be right in the thick of all the action. Four Herts teams have qualified for the postseason playoffs to decide the national champions in the various senior and youth leagues, which is a club record.
Right from the start of the season the Falcons set out to capture the NBL trophy currently held by the Harlow Nationals. They are currently in second place in the NBL and in a good position going into the postseason.
The Herts Hawks clinched a place in the AA Playoffs and tomorrow they begin their postseason campaign with an elimination game at home versus Southampton.

The Herts U17 and U14 teams also reached the playoffs in their respective leagues. They are eagerly awaiting the announcement by the BBF which will confirm their opponents in the playoffs.
The Herts Eagles and the Herts Raptors put up one hell of a fight in the Single-A League but just missed out on the playoffs. Both teams had a winning season (win-loss % of .500 or above) which is an astonishing performance compared to the previous few seasons for Herts in the A-League. They may be out of the postseason but they too can look forward to the Hunlock Series in September and October, which is arguably the most enjoyable event of the baseball season for everyone connected with Herts.
Here is a run-down of the events not to be missed in August, September and October.
