19, 2003: Pete Maestrales picked up two awards for
individual effort as his Greek team took the silver medal in the
Seniors Championship of the
Confédération Européene de Baseball (C.E.B.), which ended today in
The Netherlands. Despite his relatively low batting average of
.143 through six of the eight games (the most recent statistics
available), Pete showed his aggressiveness on the basepaths and won
the individual awards for runs scored (11) and bases stolen (6)!
finished second in the tournament with a record of 6-2, behind The
Netherlands, who were dominant with a record of 8-0, winning one game
by 21 runs! (Check out the
roster for the Dutch team -- see any former Bears?)
play with different rules in Europe: according to the C.E.B.
Competition Rules, if one team is leading the other by 10 runs or
more after 7 innings of play, the game ends!
Congratulations to Pete, and we eagerly await
his return to Newark!
