It was a nice friendly game with some fine plays and the return of an Oxford legend, Steve Roberts. At least 5 runners were tagged out at 3rd on relays from the outfield. Irving hit a home run that still has not stopped rolling. Lesley made an excellent catch in deep right centre field to save a few runs. Grace made the perfect deflection to the first baseman’s glove, it’s a shame she was the runner! And Tom W saw a barrage of balls hit his way but did an excellent job stopping most of them, saving many runs in the process. But ultimately the Angels balanced attack (every Angels player had at least 2 hits) proved too much. Conner, aka “Hollywood”, also made a basket catch while running in from left field, and all other rookies showed progress both in the field and in their stat lines.
