BASEBALL: SATURDAY saw the Runcorn Jets' Rookie Baseball team host their Home Tournament at Halton Sports Field.
Cartmel Valley Cubs from the Lake District and Manchester Saints were the other teams involved.
The opener pitched Jets against Cartmel and a vast improvement in fielding saw Runcorn only narrowly lose out, 17-13.
In the second game against Manchester Saints, Jets' fielding standards reached a new peak to limit the Saints to just two runs.
After two innings each, it was 10-7 to Saints.
In the third, Manchester scored five and Jets responded with three, although the un-lucky Runcorn team were denied two more runs by contentious umpiring. Final score: Jets 10, Manchester 15.
Runcorn Jets Rookies travel to Cartmel this Saturday, Jets' Bronco team facing Halton Polecats at Halton Sports on the same day. Spectators are more than welcome.
Runcorn Jets Baseball Club thank sponsor Rocksavage Power Company and will be wearing their new kit this weekend.
