Coach’s Corner

Pre Game report, 12-2 in 8 inings

Another well played game at the Kaker Lakers field in Witten. Since Witten had more players of the second team on the field, the challenge was not as big as expected. Nevertheless, the pitching, batting and defense was very good. Again I had the chance that each pitcher could throw for a few innings. Since Carsten Pletscher was not at the last game in Herne, he also stood on the mound again. They all did a good job with less than 20 pitches in 2 innings. Because of good pitching and good defense, Witten only could score 2 runs. Again we had a nice double play, 6-4-3.

Our batting is getting better and better, even though some players had problems to keep their eye on the ball. Since it is the beginning of the year, I do believe that this is a small thing, we all can work on! With Christian Penger, Sebastian Balk, Rico Rehme, Gerhard Krajczy and Bryan Ramon, they all had 2-base hits. Also there were nice bunts and 1-base hits.

If we keep this up, we will have a good season.

I want to thank Witten for inviting us to their field.

The next pre-game is against Lippstadt this coming up saturday at home.
