Liverpool Trojans Baseball Club Est.1946
Sweet 16 spoils the party for the Scorpions as Trojans rally back to impossible sweep
The Hull Scorpions were the visitors to Norman Wells Ballpark on Sunday where they took on the reigning northern championship holders, the Liverpool Trojans in what was one of the most remarkable contests ever to have taken place on the hallowed fields of Maguire Avenue.
Game two saw one of the greatest comebacks ever to take place in this sport (or quite possibly any other) that the UK has ever seen. By contrast, game one was a tamer affair, but there was still plenty of highlights.
Sunday 5th June 2016
Britain’s oldest existing baseball club, the Liverpool Trojans, marked their 70th anniversary as the club’s first and second teams met for the very first time.
The original team was formed in 1946 by ex-servicemen returning from the second world war. During the early years the team were on a very steep learning curve as the standard of baseball in the UK was extremely high. During the mid 70's and early 80's the Trojans won the British Championship 3 times and won their own division for nine consecutive years, at the time a British record. Winning ways returned to the Trojans in 2011 & 2012, becoming AAA National champions after losing out in the semi-final in 2010. In 2013 the Trojans once again made it to the AAA national Finals but were beaten by the London Metros. The current Liverpool Trojans are setting their own high standards and are keen to follow their predecessor's winning ways.
