Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba)’s sponsorship support for the latest season of the Bahrain Baseball League underlines the company’s commitment to encourage team sports amongst the young and promote sportsmanship.
Three teams from Bahrain competed in this year’s Bahrain Baseball League in the Kuwait-GCC tournament, which included teams from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Dubai.
The 12U team coached by Bradley Worrall, Ryan Edy and Chris Carroll had a strong showing with a 2-2 record and was led by the play of Donovan Worrall who was a 2-time game MVP. Also contributing to the 12U victories was the strong play of Bryan Van der Meer, Shintaro Azegami and Masaki Kurihara.
The 14U team coached by Mohab Khattab, Dan Taylor and Tim Murray were led by the play of Omar Khattab, Ethan Murray, Alex Kehoe and Steven Taylor. The young 14U team faced tough competition from the older GCC teams and ended up losing in the semi-final game against Qatar.
The 18U team coached by Robles and Eldredge had strong play with some tough losses to end with a record of 1-3. The team under the leadership of captain Spencer Painter showed great team work in the face of tough competition from the older GCC teams. The highlight of the tournament for the 18U team was the game winning homerun by Brelin Carroll.
Commenting Alba’s support of the Bahrain Baseball League, Alba’s Chief Executive Tim Murray said: “At Alba, we firmly support youth sports. We believe teamwork is a key part of life, be it sports or work. We have been a proud sponsor of the Bahrain Baseball team for the past several years and we take pride in Bahrain competing against the other teams from the GCC. ”
