WAGGA’S latest season of Last Man Stands started with a bang.
A rare home run was struck during the first round at Bolton Park on Sunday and it promises to be another exciting season.
James Daley launched a six off the last ball of the innings for Prestige World Wide, earning his team 12 runs and himself a piece of folk lore.
After three years it was the first time a home run has been hit in the Wagga competition.
Competitor organiser Rob Meggison expects another good season with the winners to vie for a place in the world championship.
“There was big scores and we had our first ever home run,” Meggison said.
“That was pretty cool.”
The opening round also featured a hat-trick from Thirsty Crow SC’s Tom Paton as well as a tie between Estella Exiles and Umpire Strikes Back.
It’s cricket not quite as you now it and it’s back bigger than ever.
Seven teams have already signed up for the latest season and competitor organiser Rob Meggison is hopeful they can expand to eight.
Spots for the Sunday afternoon competition are still available with registrations closing on October 9.
