Following a relatively comfortable semi-final win over Halton on Saturday, the Cobham Cougars had to work harder on Sunday 15 September at the BBF's Pony National Baseball Championships at Farnham Park, but ultimately had enough to overcome a feisty Herts Harriers side and defend their Pony title.
The Youth National Baseball Championships were played – but not to a conclusion – on the weekend of 15-16 September. Semi-finals in both the Pony and Bronco divisions were played on Saturday, with Southern teams prevailing in all four games over teams from the North.
The London Mets Pony squad extended their winstreak to ten games on Saturday, sweeping their long-time rivals the Horsham Hornets. During this streak the Mets have out-scored their opponents 130-25 and their record over the last two years is an astonishing 26-2 including post-season games.
