As at the beginning of this year, the Dutch baseball hangout wants to focus on trading in the Belgian Baseball Gold (BBG) League, which is called the Top League next year. The trading period in Belgium ended on December 1st, so let’s start with the 10th blog post. It’s about the Brasschaat Braves, Belgium’s largest baseball and softball club.
The Brass Ghat Braves started in 1958 as the Brass Ghat Baseball Club. In the late 80’s, an American player named Johnsonwood joined the club and persuaded him to change his name to the Brass Ghat Braves.
Since the club has the most active members of Belgian baseball, it relies primarily on its youth development system, yet to replace the players who left the club in 2021, the club has their farm team I’m watching it.
The remaining players are Christoff Peeters (Hoboken Pioneers), Tibo Soebert (unknown), Christopher Gé (returned to the Netherlands where he played at HCAW due to the Corona crisis last season) and Larry Infante (whose role is different from the team?). .. ..
To replace these players, the Braves turn to Liam van Malder and Rob de Boy. These are the fruits that the Braves can choose from their youth development system. Robbe De Boey is a versatile player who can play as a pitcher, infielder, and outfielder. Liam van Marder can play in both the infield and the outfield.
If permitted by COVID-19, the Braves want to strengthen the flagship team with an import pitcher and another import player who can act as a relief pitcher and a utility man. Both importers are needed with the upcoming Federation Cup (sponsored by the Braves) in mind.
The coaching staff also has some changes. Ignace Peeters will leave the club, but Donald Vertommen from Borgerhout Squirrels will join the coaching staff. The team will be under the command of Kevin Peeters and assistant coach Peter van Walraven.
The goal is to work on a youth development system. The Braves 2nd and 3rd teams are doing a good job and I am confident that the club will choose fruits in the long run.
A big thank you to Hans Heyrman for providing us with the very necessary information. I really appreciate your help.
