Bombers ignite

In the world of co-ed softball the group getting much attention is the C league. With the most teams ever in its existence and one of them currently unbeaten there is plenty to notice about the social league.

Heading into this week the Billy Bones Jager Bombers were undefeated in the Winter Adult Co-ed Softball League. Organized by the Cayman Islands Little League, games in the competition take place throughout the week at the Field of Dreams facility in George Town.

Billy Bones are next in action on Friday 25 February against the Royals at 8.15pm on field three. Among the players slated to take the field for the Jager Bombers is Terry Ballard. A sportsman in his own right, Ballard has been active in basketball and motorsports.

Ballard, who mans a number of infield positions, states the team’s form so far is good.

“Though we’re undefeated it feels the same as last year,” Ballard said. “It’s the same team and we’ve been fine. It’s all for fun really though we always try to win.”

Billy Bones is essentially the same squad that played as the PricewaterhouseCoopers Scorpions last season. That team claimed the regular season C league crown before losing in the finals to team HSBC. This time around both sides have competition from six other clubs split up into two divisions.

Ballard, 23, states his team is not worried about the additional sides and is focused on redemption.

“We’re not really bothered by the new teams. They’re not any harder. The best part of the season will be when we win the championship. Last year we had a big upset in the finals. I don’t think we will lose a game this year. I feel we’re a lot better because we’ve progressed. We’ve all shown progress with our skills.”
