The Cranbrook Banditas fastball team took the field for the first time this week, playing a scrimmage and exhibition game at the Quad Ball fields in Cranbrook.
On Sunday afternoon, the team split up their roster and added five players from the Cranbrook Heat U16 team to play a scrimmage and on Tuesday evening, the Banditas took on the entire Heat roster in a friendly game.
The game ended as a 12-5 win for the Heat and Banditas catcher/founder Sarah Coles was thoroughly satisfied with the performance of all the players involved.
“I was really impressed with our girls,” Coles said. “Our pitching staff did an amazing job. Only giving up five runs really shows how much work we’ve been putting in during pre-season.”
The Banditas have a weekly practice schedule and their next planned event is an away tournament in Sicamous, BC on the weekend of May 27.
