Patriots still swing the best bats

There are few surprises in Cayman’s world of fast-pitch softball.

Heading into last weekend, the West Indian Marine Patriots remain atop the male division of the Cayman Islands Softball Association 2012 adult league. The squad has 19 wins, five losses, zero ties and two rain outs at the West Bay field and dominated the competition most of the season.

Leading the assault on Sunday afternoons have been home-run threats Bradimir Robinson (eight homers), Johnny Johnson Senior (six homers) and Peter Whittaker (five homers). They have kept the Patriots well ahead of the 10-11-1-3 Jose’s Escape Pirates, who are led by Byron Bravo’s five dingers.

Currently in the cellar are Donald Watler’s Latinos, who are struggling with a 5-18-1-1 record. Matches continue this month with the teams competing in West Bay on Sundays at 2.30pm.

The squads are expected to finish their seasons in late October/early November.
