GCC Pursue Scottish Baseball Dream

By Greig Hopcroft

Glenrothes Cricket Club is delighted to announce the launch of the Glenrothes Green Sox, our new baseball team.

“I love baseball and US sports in general, cricket and baseball are practically the same sport anyway, it's a natural tie up” Alistair King, GCC

The Glenrothes Green Sox will present an exicting new chapter in the future of Glenrothes Cricket Club.

GCC spokesman Alistair King commented; "I love baseball and US sports in general, cricket and baseball are practically the same sport anyway, it's a natural tie up".

"We hope to apply to join Baseball Scotland and I've got all the paperwork together today (April 1st 2019) to do just that. It shouldn't be long before the Glenrothes Green Sox are mixing it up with the Edinburgh Cannons, Edinburgh Devils, Edinburgh Giants, Glasgow Comets, Glasgow Galaxy and Granite City Oilers."

"With this development it is going to mean some changes to the ground at Gilvenbank Park, fortunately Kenny Crichton and his team have almost finished work on the new pavilion, with a cement mixer still on site; I'm sure we can get the baseball diamond laid on the outfield in time for the start of both the cricket and the baseball seasons".

If you are keen to get involved with the Glenrothes Green Sox, please email aprilfool@glenrothescc.co.uk - we'd love to say howdy.
