Stettler sweeps Olds

In its maiden season, the Stettler midget baseball team took both ends of a Sunday doubleheader at home against Olds.

In its maiden season, the Stettler midget baseball team took both ends of a Sunday doubleheader at home against Olds.

After a rain delay between games, Stettler won 15-3 after taking the opener 10-2.

The first game was called in the top of the seventh inning because of rain.

Starter Ben Bauman and closer Aaron Lee pitched for Stettler in Game 1.

“A big defensive play by outfielder Jake Williams kept Stettler ahead,” said Jeff Lee, who’s coaching Stettler along with Darren Bauman and Brian Laughlin.

After the rain delay, and field maintenance, the show went on and Stettler rebounded from an early deficit to post another lopsided win. Scott Ternes, Tim Chater and Stefan du Toit, respectively, pitched for Stettler.

“A big defensive play by left-handed rookie first baseman, Aeroll Acera, rallied the Stettler boys back from a 2-0 deficit,” said coach Lee.

“The Olds’ defence could not keep up with Stettler’s strong hitting and base-running.”

Up next for Stettler — 5-1 on the young season — is a June 12 home game.
