The Kemptville Black Sox have been busy this season, playing multiple games a week in the Greater Ottawa Fastball League.
On Wednesday, May 22, the team played the Stittsville 56ers, losing 3-2. Team spokesperson Hugh Murray says Zach Thompson and Tom Hanna pitched well for the team and Jefferson Roman, Jeremy Malloy and Moises Del Corral each had two hits.
On Friday, May 24, the Black Sox traveled to Orleans to play the Orleans Rebels. Hugh says this was their best game of the season. “We out hit them, but they hit a 2-run homer to tie in the 6th inning,” he says. Dan Thompson pitched with relief from Shannon Borho and Dan and Zach Thompson both hit home runs.
On Wednesday, May 29, they played their first home game of the season vs. the Kars Aces. They played two games with one win and one loss.
On Wednesday, June 5, the Black Sox traveled to Manotick to play the Kars Aces again, losing both games.
Unfortunately, Hugh says they are going to have to reschedule their home games because the peewee girls need the field to practice during their time slot. Stay tuned for revised schedule of Kemptville Black Sox home games.
