HUNDREDS of baseball fans flocked to Carine Cats Baseball Club’s home ground for an open day event on the weekend.

It was a day highlighted by three wins from the club’s men’s teams across three divisions in the state league.

The Cats’ State League 1 split fixtures with Perth Baseball Club, winning the first 9-3 and losing the second 3-8.

The State League 2 team beat Perth 7-3 while the State League 3 team recorded an 11-4 win again over Perth.

Carine Cats Baseball Club co-chairperson Luke Johns said players and fans were also treated to an exhibition match between two junior teams.

“We had dunk tanks face painting homerun competitions design and make your own donuts as well as lots of baseball action going on,” he said.

“(City of Stirling councillor) Andrew Guilfoyle opened our season by throwing the opening pitch to start the season.”

Carine MLA Tony Kristevic was also in attendance.

The Cats next play the Gosnells Hawks on October 29.
