Baseball International - GB vs Ireland

30th July 2006

Sunday 29th July 2006 saw Great Britain play a double header against Ireland at Finsbury Park cricket club — the first international baseball played in this country since 2002. These games were the conclusion of a three game series between the sides and were also notable for marking the retirement of long-time Great Britain catcher, and five baseball pundit Josh Chetwynd. GB won the first game of the day 6 to 5, but despite an impressive 2-out rally in the final inning of second game they lost that one with a reversal of the scoreline from the first game. Ireland took the series 2 - 1.

Here’s some photos of the action…

(Some photos were taken by me and others by Paul, but I forget which are which)

Updated 31st July 2006 — added a few extra pictures I missed the first time I looked through them. I’ve tried to keep the pictures in the order they happened.
