Youth Meets Experience in Kitchener Fastball League

“Slammin Sammy Forbes” Hits Game Winning HR for the Vets in Game 2

[Kitchener, On] – The Championship Series of the Kitchener Fastball League is now well underway.

The Kitchener Phoenix Outlaws ( 3 times defending Champions) are pitted against the Waterloo Classics, in a battle of the young vs the aging.

Phoenix prevailed in cold, windy opener with a 5-0 victory, in which Sean Geehan got the win, and Don Stebbings took the loss.

In game two, with great weather last night, the Classics got back into the series with a close 5-4 victory over the never say die Outlaws. The Classics got on board quickly with 3 runs in the
first, and another in the 2nd inning, courtesy of a 3 run shot by Classics Catcher Ben Blackwell.

The Phoenix got back into the game with some timely hitting, included a homerun by Sean Geehan, and tied the game at 4-4 in the 4th inning. Both teams went down 3 up and 3 down in the 5th. In the bottom of the 6th Sam Forbes hit an opposite field home run to put the Classics up 5-4. The Phoenix didn’t threaten with any baserunners in the 7th. Winning Pitcher was Jim Schnarr, while Mel Ross took the loss.

Game 3 goes Wednesday Night at Budd Park at 7:00Pm
