Irish baseball league: Week eight preview

Week eight in the Irish Baseball League ‘A’ division sees the Blacksox take on the Greystones Mariners and the Hurricanes travel to Belfast to take on the Belfast Northstars.

The Blacksox/Mariners game is at Shanganah park in Shankill. The Mariners are playing great baseball and currently sit top of the Irish ‘A’ league at 5-2. The Blacksox have had mixed results so far and badly need the win to get their season kick started, they are currently third in the table at 2-3. This promises to be an exciting game.

The Hurricanes are on a road trip, up to Belfast to take on the resurgent Northstars. Belfast managed a spectacular double header sweep of the current champions the Dublin Spartans last weekend. The Northstars are looking to build on that and improve on their 2-2 record. The Hurricanes are 3-1 and looking to climb further up the table.

Should be a great weekend’s baseball in Ireland.
