There is a new leader in the Dutch Hoofdklasse Softball after last weekend’s action. Sparks Haarlem swept its doubleheader with the Tex Town Tigers and moved into first place with a 13-1 record, followed by the Tigers, which are 14-2.
In game one Haarlem needed just a two-run homerun by Kim Kluijskens in the top of the opening frame to win 2-1. Dagmar Bloeming out-dueled Lindsey Meadows on the mound. In the second match Sparks overcame an early 1-3 deficit en route to a 4-3 victory. Nathalie Gosewehr drove in the winning run with a double in the sixth. Karin Tuk drove in two for the Tigers.
The Dutch Hoofdklasse resumes next weekend with a big Softball happening in Haarlem, as all scheduled doubleheaders will be played at the fields of Olympia Haarlem as part of a four-day event. Additionally the Dutch National Team will face an all-star squad of the foreign players in the league on Sunday.
