The defending champions of the Nanaimo Senior Men’s Fastball League will play their home opener at the Glenora softball fields this Thursday evening.
Already holding a pair of victories under their belts, the Duncan masters team will square off against Wheatsheaf at 6:30 p.m. The Closson crew finished second in the Icebreaker tournament at Cedar earlier this month, and has compiled a record of two wins and one loss over their first three league games.
They opened with a 12-2 win over Baker Supply on May 7, with pitcher Craig Snyder adding a home run to his 11-strikeout performance, while Dennis Young went 4-for-6 at the plate.
On May 14, the Duncan team was edged 5-4 by Wheatsheaf despite eight strikeouts by Snyder. Dom Mansueti batted a perfect 3-for-3 with a homer. The team bounced back on May 21 with a 6-2 win over Lantzville Pub. Snyder had 14 strikeouts while going 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBIs. Dave Devana and Dan Whiteford also hit four-baggers.
