The West Indie Marine Patriots are eager to top Cayman’s softball ranks once again.
The Patriots, with unsung talent Michael Carey, are awaiting their opponents for the male division finals of the Cayman Islands Softball Association 2012 adult league. A best-of-seven series is slated to start on 4 November in West Bay.
Heading into the postseason, the defending champions dominated the competition with 19 wins, five losses and zero ties. 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).
Currently, the league is in the midst of its opening round playoffs featuring Donald Watler’s Latinos and Jose’s Escape Pirates. Latinos started off the month with a 1-0 lead over the Pirates in their best-of-five series.
The Pirates had a mediocre 10-11-1-3 record during the regular season behind Byron Bravo’s five home-runs. Latinos were in the cellar with a 5-18-1-1 mark.
Matches take place in West Bay on Sunday afternoons from 2.30pm. Game four is slated for this Sunday, 21 October, with game five, if necessary, on 28 October.
