Twelve Hornsby chapter members and guests met for lunch on Saturday, March 18 at the Third Base restaurant at US183 and Anderson Mill Road.
Topics of discussion included the World Baseball Classic and performance of the remaining teams – Japan, Netherlands, Puerto Rico and the pending USA-Dominican Republic elimination game. Of special interest was the “international extra-inning” rule that attempts to shorten games by placing runners on first and second with no outs, beginning in the eleventh inning. Spring Training was another hot topic, with chapter members discussing the performance – so far – of their favorite teams.
Jan Larson provided the quiz, a review of general baseball history and records. The results were hotly-contested and Jim Baker walked away with the valuable prize – a Mark Saccomanno Corpus Christi Hooks bobble-head.
The April chapter meeting is TBD, but April 22 appears to be a likely date. More information will be forthcoming.
