Pattaya Softball goes old school, playing at revamped field


Sunday, July 1st was not just Canada day, it was also the day the softballers united at a temporary field and played a 3 team tournament.  The Thai Polo Club field is temporarily closed, so the softballers moved to a field near the Pattaya indoor stadium and played a 3 team round robin tournament.

Teams were evenly matched with Stockton’s A Team, narrowly defeating Gil’s Sunrise Taco team 9-6 in preliminary game action.  The Sunrise Taco team went on to beat Diego’s Golf Club team 10–7 in round 2.  Third and final game saw the A Team win again by a 9-7 margin over the Golf Club.  That set up a final between Sunrise Tacos and the A Team.

MVP of the day Jonathan hits a long ball with Andy at catcher and Phil pitching. MVP of the day Jonathan hits a long ball with Andy at catcher and Phil pitching.

The final game was a blowout, with Gil’s Sunrise Taco team getting revenge on the A Team and winning by a score of 16-5.  MVP of the day was Jonathan who hit 2 homeruns and was spectacular in the outfield.  He was assisted by speedy Beck who also hit one dinger and was solid on the base paths.

We had a turnout of more than 30 players this weekend and would like to thank John Stockton and Dave Dolle for all their hard work informing everyone of the changes.  If you are interested in joining us, we play every Sunday from noon to 4pm.  Just send an email to:  scrabbleking or igolfwells or check out Pattaya Sports Club on the web.  You can come alone, or bring the whole family out to the ball park.  It’s a guaranteed hit, so why not give Sunday Softball a try?  See you next Sunday at the new and improved softball field of dreams!
