Bankers cash in on Mark’s throws

Co-ed softball is gearing up for its playoffs and a number of teams are doing well.

At the top of the list is team HSBC, who went into last week with an blemished 9-0 record. The squad has a five-game lead in the loss column of the C division in the Cayman Islands Little League Winter 2012 Adult Co-Ed Softball league.

Essentially a combination of Jeff Pouchie’s old HSBC side and pitcher Tony Mark’s Billy Bones Jager Bombers, the bankers have allowed a league-low 27 runs. The squad is one of six teams in action at 8.15pm on Tuesday, 10 April, at the George Town Field of Dreams.

HSBC battles division rivals and cellar dwellers Harbour House Marina Whalers (2-7) on field two, Club House Crabbies face the BritCay Premiums on field three and KM Ltd take on A.L. Thompson’s Hammers on field four.

Club House, 6-4, are charging for a division crown. The Crabbies are second in the AA division, just behind the 6-3 Coors Light Chuggers. BritCay are just behind them at 4-4-1. Last year’s A division winners, Norlan Duarte and KM are now struggling to stay competitive with a 4-5-1 record (which has them fourth out of six teams). The Hammers have similar problems, as they are fifth in the same division at 4-6 (just ahead of the 3-6-1 Kirk Freeport Coconuts).
