First day Hudson John Tournament completed
THE HAGUE (Neth.) - The first day of the 15th Hudson John Tournament is in the books. Despite the current cold in the Netherlands, the first three games of the event were played on Saturday, March 30, but were abbreviated to only five innings. The opening game on Friday-evening was postponed due to the cold and will be played either on Sunday or on Monday. It is the first time that the annual event is being hosted by ADO Lakers in The Hague. The previous fourteen editions were organized by Sparta-Feyenoord in Rotterdam, but that club was dissolved in October last year.

On Saturday, Mampaey The Hawks, which will make its debut this season in the Dutch big league, opened the event with a 2-0 shutout-win against UVV. In Game 2, UVV also lost its next game, this time with a 3-1 score to DOOR Neptunus. The first day ended with a 3-1 win by host ADO Lakers against The Hawks. The tournament continues on Sunday-morning at 11 AM.

Game One: UVV vs. Mampaey The Hawks, 0-2
In the first game on Saturday, which was now the opening game of the event after the postponement on Friday, The Hawks won 2-0 vs. UVV.

The Hawks scored both runs in the second inning off of starting pitcher Dennis Burgersdijk. After a runner was left on third base in the first at bat, The Hawks was more successful in the second inning. Gregory Trinidad led off with a walk and advanced to third base when Berend Ruben singled with one out. A double by Coen Merkx then enabled both runners to score and gave the team from Dordrecht a 2-0 lead.

In the third inning, The Hawks reached third base again. Urving Kemp led off with a single, then an error followed on a force play-grounder by Bob de Bruin. But then, a double play and flyout followed, leaving Kemp at third base. The UVV-defense turned another double play in the fourth inning.

Three pitchers of The Hawks held UVV to only one basehit. Starter Henk van Heijingen retired the first six batters in a row, then Tim Sloots took over in the third with The Hawks leading 2-0. He gave up a lead-off single to Dennis Ribbens, but he was caught stealing moments later. Next, Joris van Ballegooy was hit by a pitch and an error on a grounder by Andy Raaff led to runners at first and third base. Norbert Jongerius then flied out and Van Ballegooy went on to score, but he was called out, after The Hawks appealed he left third base too early. In the remaining two innings, UVV reached base only one more time, which was when Ribbens walked with two outs in the fifth inning.

Game Two: DOOR Neptunus vs. UVV, 3-1
In the afternoon, Neptunus handed UVV its second loss of the day by winning 3-1.

Neptunus opened the score in the first at bat off of starting pitcher Jurjen van Zijl. With one out, Gianison Boekhoudt singled, then scored all the way from first base when Dwayne Kemp followed with a double. But he stranded at second base, as two groundouts followed.

Neptunus added two runs in the second inning. Benjamin Dille led off with a double and advanced on a grounder by Gyenuar Lopez, then scored on a sac-fly by rookie Stephen Henson. Next, Shaldimar Daantji singled and scored when Adrian Anthony doubled. In their remaining two at bats in this game, Neptunus was held hitless by Hylke van Viersen, who only walked Lopez in the fourth inning.

Neptunus-starter Diegomar Markwell gave up two hits in the four innings he pitched. In the second inning, he gave up a lead-off single to Giovanni Samboe, who then advanced when a pick-off ended in a caught stealing-error. After an one-out walk for Brennan Nijhof, Samboe moved to third base on a force play-grounder by Dennis Ribbens, but the inning ended when the latter was caught stealing. In the third inning, Markwell gave up a 2-out single to Norbert Jongerius, who stole second base, but stranded there.

UVV then scored its lone run in the fifth inning after new pitcher Floris Timmer gave up a lead-off single to Brennan Nijhof. He moved on a walk by Ribbens and a sac-bunt by Thomas Smits, then scored on a grounder by Rossini Frolijk.

Game Three: Mampay The Hawks vs. ADO Lakers, 1-3
The first day was closed with a 3-1 win by host ADO Lakers against The Hawks.

The host club opened the score in the first inning when Hugo van der Kooij, the starting pitcher for The Hawks, gave up three consecutive basehits to start the game. Gino Hersilia led off with a single, then moved to third base when Wamaer Bordewijk also singled. A double by Ludwin Obispo then led to the first run. With runners on second and third base, a strikeout followed, then a double play ended the inning.

After a scoreless second at bat, ADO Lakers added its next run in the third inning off of new pitcher Rick van Dyck. With one out, Ludwin Obispo walked. An error following on a 2-out single by Glennton Poulo then brought Obispo to third base and he scored when Tim Schaareman followed with a single.

ADO Lakers increased the lead to 3-1 in the top of the fourth inning. With one out, Kevin Noordzij was brought in as new pitcher, but he was greeted with singles by Nurison Leonora and Gino Hersilia. An error then led to the third run. In the home of the fourth, The Hawks scored its lone run off of Sylvester Martina. He walked lead-off hitter and pinch-hitter Coen Merkx, who advanced on a single by Steven Wharwood and a flyout by Erwin Bonis, then scored when an error was made on a grounder by pinch-hitter Gregory Trinidad.
