Almere Magpies receives Penalty after Loss against DOOR Neptunus

News - Dutch Baseball Leagues Comments Off on Almere Magpies receives Penalty after Loss against DOOR Neptunus

While we are displaying the Hoofdklasse standings with wins and losses, the Royal Dutch Baseball and Softball Association (KNBSB) awards teams with points, similar to soccer, two for a win and one for a draw.

According to a report on Honkbalsite.com the Almere Magpies got stripped from two points by the KNBSB, as they used an ineligible player during the 1-6 loss against DOOR Neptunus on Tuesday. According to a new rule, which was implemented before the start of the 2010 season, only one of three foreign players can be used as a starting pitcher during a three-game series against the same team and also may not return as a reliever later in the same series.

On Tuesday the 26-year-old American Justin Prinstein entered the game to pitch in the fourth and fifth frame. Since this was a make-up game of a series from the end of April, he already took the mound for the second time, as he already had started a game against DOOR Neptunus on April 30th. With less two points the task for the Magpies didn’t get easier in their pursuit of avoiding relegation from the Hoofdklasse.
