GOLDEN GROVE CENTRAL DISTRICTS BASEBALL CLUB e-NEWS
19 November 2020 – COVID EDITION
Our Club wishes to thank all our following sponsors for their support THIS season and we WELCOME our new sponsor: GREENBUILD Energy Solutions.

I trust this finds you all well during our ‘circuit breaker’ 6 day shut down that took place from midnight on Wednesday, 18 November 2020.
Covid has struck us again, but hopefully, with this short shut down, we can isolate it and get on with our lives.
In conjunction with the State Covid Mandate issued on the afternoon of Monday on Community Sports 16 November, Baseball SA had postponed all trainings and games until Tuesday, 1 December 2020.
Since this was imposed and a couple days later, the ‘6 day shut down’ came into effect on Midnight 18 November.
We are all waiting to hear what happens after this shut down which ends on 24 November.
Hopefully, we can recommence our Baseball season in December. We will update everyone as the situation changes.
ARMCHAIR UMPIRE – YOU MAKE THE CALL
It is the bottom of the last inning, the score is tied 5-5 and the bases are loaded with two outs.
The batter hits a home run over the centre field fence.
The runners from third and second cross the plate.
The batter-runner, then, over runs the runner from first! and the umpire calls him OUT.
What is the final score?
