Last weekend saw two days of epic baseball take place at the Warriston Playing Fields in Edinburgh, in Scotland’s biggest ever baseball tournament, the Bobby Thompson Invitational Tournament.
Taking part were four teams of competitors… the British Baseball League All Stars, the AAU USA International Collegiate team, the Scotland National Team and the South West Rebeldes from the South West of England. The Rebeldes featured two of our very own Weston Jets… Tom and Gian Jimenez!!
It was a fantastic weekend of top level baseball. Congratulations to the AAU USA International Collegiate team for their victory in the final to become the first ever Bobby Thomson Invitational Champions. Also congratulations to the worthy runners up, the British Baseball League All-stars. Our own representatives, the South West Rebeldes added some great latino flair to the tournament.
Our own Jet, Gian Jimenez was selected as the Rebeldes joint star player alongside Miguel Jimenez of the Yeovil whirlwinds. Gian went 3 for 4 against the USA’s ace winning pitcher getting two singles and a double! Well done Gian!!
