The National Baseball Team (GB Baseball) U12 win big over Romania in game one of the European Qualifiers U12s in Czech. 

The GB Baseball U12s (home team) came out with bats blazing in a 20 to nil win over Romania (away team). 

The first inning set the tempo for the game with GB Baseball holding the opposition to no runs or hits. At the bottom of the first inning,  GB Baseball, saw Travis Harfield doubling to left field after Christian McCarthy walking. With men at second and third,  Erik Gustafson singled to left field picking up two RBI's. Later in the same inning, we saw Arnav Rai and Sebastian Bozzo, pick up an RBI each in separate at-bats, with the score ending after one inning GBR 4 and ROM nil. 

The second inning continued with GB Baseball shutting out Romania. With their at, GB Baseball bats resumed their hitting barrage by picking up two more runs after a Travis Harfield, two run home run, making the score GBR 6 and ROM nil. 

The third inning saw a combined efforts by Lawler  (starting pitcher) and Sebastian Bozzo in relief shutting out Romania. Now, in the bottom of the third inning,  the GB Baseball U12s, bats roared for 14 unanswered runs, bringing the game to a close because of the run difference. 

Dylan Lawler got the win on the mound with Sebastian Bozzo in relief. Both mentioned pitchers no-hit Romania and held them scoreless. 

"The first victory for GB Baseball U12 at the European Qualifiers was a well-earned win on both sides of the field. That is, from both a pitching and hitting perspective. A lot of extra practise time has gone into preparing the U12s, and Coach Erick Anderson should be praised and his coaching staff, said a spokesperson for the BBF. Who went on to say, "the U12s March 2019, tryouts saw the most significant number of British youth participants taking part to make the team. We cannot say enough about our National Team Official - Jason Pearce, in getting the word out about the entire programme and setting the excitement as to what is to come." 

On the day, overall GB Baseball U12s had 15 hits, one error and scored 20 runs against Romania. For our pitching efforts, GB Baseball gave up no hits and no runs.

"There is no secret we will face better-skilled teams. However, the will of the GB Baseball Teams and those involved will always beat skill. We are not going into competitions, to place in the tournament; rather, we are going in to win. We owe it to all of those involved in the GB Baseball programme to believe in them, that they can win, and that they will win. Game on!" BBF
