Effort overcomes the rain

Both local teams played their hearts out - and won

Oceanside #2’s Ian Whibley leaps over O1’s Ben Saunders sliding safely into home during game two of their double header last weekend.

 It may be the coldest, wettest nastiest spring on record, but it hasn’t dampened the spirit of Oceanside’s young ball players as evident up at Springwood Park last Tuesday when Oceanside’s #1 and #2 Bantam teams waited out a big dump of the wet stuff to get a few innings in.

The field was heavy and footing sketchy but the effort level up there.  

Oceanside # 1 won the first game 11-2 and Oceanside #2 won the second 3-2.  

“Both games of the double header were shortened by downpours,” O2 coach Cliff Craven said after. “We only played four innings in total.”
