The Tournament team is

Congratulations to the following players on making the tournament team

  • Pitcher  Adrian Blount Gaut A
  • Relief Pitcher Damian Perkins  WP B
  • Catcher Cuan Bergman Gaut A
  • First Base William Thomson Gaut A
  • Second Base Nicholas Eagles WP U23
  • Third Baseman Cameron v Niekerk Gaut A
  • Shortstop Brett Willemburg WP A
  • Outfield Hein Robb Gaut A
  • Outfield Josh Halversen WP B
  • Outfield Keagan Palmer Gaut 23U

The criteria for selection are as follows; the tournament side would be selected on the stats up to the end of the rounds excluding the last day – i.e. The semi and the final – the stats of the first three days selected the side – and yes the stats are available – the fielding and batting averages were taken in every position with the top fielder been selected from the first three days. Hitting also came into the equation but a certain amount of at plates were required to qualify.

We trust that this clears up any confusion as to why, who, how, etc

Finals update by Sean Campbell

In this morning semi-finals WP A beat a brave WP U23 10-0 team to progress to the final.

After a slow start Gauteng A out hit WP B to eventually cruise to a 9-2 win.

2 runs in the 6th and 5 runs in 7th inning blew it for WP B as they were leading 2-1 after 5 innings.

So it turns out to be the predicted final,
WP A vs Gauteng A at 2pm.

WP A are the fresher of the 2 teams, with them recording 3 shut outs in their last 3 games, and Gauteng A being pushed all the way in their last 3 games.

Carl Michaels and Jared Elario are raring to have a go at Gauteng A. Gauteng A are gonna have to dig deep to put 2 or 3 quality pitchers out there to make WP A work for their runs.

It could be interpreted in various ways, Gauteng A can be on a good run, WP A are fresh and well rested, WP A could be complacent………

Earlier in the tournament WP A shut out Gauteng A 6-0.
Get down to Chukker Road to watch the final at 2pm
