Dutch defeat Domincan in the tournaments first upset!
For those of you who voted on my latest poll for the Dominican Republic to win the Baseball classic there has been a turn for the worst as one of the heavy favorites to win the competition lost to a rookie Netherlands team in the searing heat in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This was a major upset as the Dutch man's defense held on for a 3 to 2 win. The Dominican will now play for survival in the competition against Pannama, who also lots its opening game. They wil battle it out on Sunday March 8th at 4:30 p.m. ET at Hiram Bithorn Stadiumin San Juan. The Netherlands will play Puerta Rico on the 9th March for the chance to advance to the later stages of the competition.
Hi, My name is Joe wood, i am a sophomore here at UNM. i am currently majoring in Journalism and i play for the men's tennis team. I come from Sheffield, England so Albuquerque is a whole other world than what i am used to but having been here a year and a half now, i am starting to get used to the climate, food and other general cultural differences that i struggled to grasp at the start.
Tennis takes up a lot of free time but i enjoy playing soccer (football) and going to watch the sporting events here at UNM and have just about learnt the rules for American football!
