The Hunlock Series has grown over the years and earlier today it was confirmed that green has been added to the rainbow of Hunlock Series team colours.
Black Widows, Blue Dogs, Red Roosters and White Lightning are the four teams which have locked horns over the last two editions of the Series. The name of the green team has been announced and it is Green Eggs and Ham.
Earlier today it was also revealed that Herts favourites, Kimiyoshi Saionji and Andrew Fulford will be back at Grovehill Ballpark for these games.
Kimi spent 8 years playing for the Herts Falcons as the team climbed up from the Double-A League to the NBL. At the start of the year he made a surprise move to rivals Southampton Mustangs, but Herts fans will be pleased to know that Kimi will be back in a Herts jersey this October.
Andrew Fulford was the hero for the Herts Hawks in 2012 helping the team reach the playoffs and go through to the national semi-finals. His grandslam home run against the Guildford Mavericks in the quarter-final was crucial.
Also added to the Series are father and son, Cesar and Sebastian Molina. Sebastian has been playing for the Horsham Hornets in the U17 League over the last two seasons so Herts fans know him well. Despite turning 14 just a few days ago he launched that big home run over the left-centerfield wall of the new diamond at Grovehill Ballpark in the U17 Playoff quarter-final against the Cobham Cougars three weeks ago. We understand that Sebastian plans to wear the Herts uniform in 2014 joining the large number of Herts players with Venezuelan origin. If so, this will be a massive boost for the club.
The Hunlock Series Draft is scheduled for 8:30pm this Thursday, 26 September. You can follow it live on Herts TV. In previous years the Draft was presented as a show with player and manager interviews. This year the show will have a different format. Viewers will be able to listen to live audio from the Hunlock Series Draft Centre as the team managers make their picks and try to outsmart each other before the first pitch has even been thrown. Viewers will also be able to follow the picks on the Hunlock Series Draft control panel.
