Bristol baseball June 22, 2007

Posted by mark in : Uncategorized , trackback

Heard today that a baseball team has started practicing on the Downs – 1pm, Sundays, by the Water Tower – and hoping to get a proper pitch and games. No website that I know of, and no mention on BaseballSoftballUK.com yet. I plan to go along this Sunday (and I’m told that anyone’s welcome).

In the 90’s I played a few games for Crewkerne Cutters (initially at 3rd base, then shortstop and relief pitcher), coached by Patrick Carroll. The SW League folded the following year, but I think there were half a dozen teams, from Taunton, Plymouth, somewhere near Bristol (Yate?), etc. And I think that’s the last time ‘Bristol’ had a baseball team.
