BSL All-Star Sunday Recap

The All-star festivities were action packed and it was a phenomenal way to finish off the season. The best of BSL put on a show for all those that turned up to watch. 

Here were the winners from the competitions: 

Pitching Showdown: Zahid Merchant with 19 points

Running Bases Challenge: Sameer Rafique with a time of 13.54 seconds

Longest Throw Challenge: Ahmad Ammad with a throw of 225 feet

Spray Hitting Challenge: Zahid Merchant with 12 points on 15 hits

Home Run Derby: Umair Jabbar with 14 Home Runs in 4 minutes

The highlight of the night was the All-Star game that was suppose to last 9 innings but ended up going into the 11th. The game was back and forth all night with over 6 lead changes. The Ansaar were up 2 in the top of the 9th when Umair Jabbar hit a grand slam to put the Muhajir up by 2. The Ansaar replied back with 2 more on base hits by Nadeem Hussain and Ibrahim Sardar but couldn't cash in the winning run from third with one out. In the 10th, each team scored one run to take it to the 11th. The Muhajir blew it open with a 4 run inning on some misplays by the Ansaar. On a cold night, the Muhajir got their first All-Star game win. Osman Buttar went 6-6 on the night and Captain Umair Jabbar finished with 5 RBIs including the game winning hit to help his team win. 

The BSL Banquet is this Sunday at 2:30pm.
