Sanford Dillman Hornets hurler Bob Collens puts a lot of effort into every pitch

The 100 Mile Men’s Fastball League has already got a number of games under its belt, and the players in the five-team league are currently battling the weather almost as much as they are each other.

Last year’s bantam team dropped out of the league this year, so the young players have been picked up by the other teams, which bodes well for the future of fastball in this community.

Currently, the Red Rock Grill Avengers sit at the top of the standings with five wins in five games, while the Jakes Pub Old Buds are in second with three wins in four games.

The Shuswap Defenders and Exeter Sporting Goods are tied in third with two wins in four games, and the Sanford Dillman Hornets are still looking for their first victory after six games.

 

Rain out

On May 27, Exeter Sporting Goods and the Red Rock Grill Avengers were rained out after 3-and-a-half innings, with Exeter leading 6-2.

The teams agreed to play one-and-a-half innings to finish this game before the start of their next regularly scheduled tilt on June 14.

 

Schedule

Sanford Dillman take on the Red Rock on May 29, and Exeter goes up against the Shuswap Defenders on May 30. Both games start at 6:30 p.m.

All games are played at Lumberman’s Park beside the arena on Airport Road in 100 Mile House.
