Houston Belize United baseball team dedicating high-stakes playoff games this weekend to deceased coach

By Benjamin Flowers: After 12 weeks of traveling to Mexico on Sundays to compete in Calderitas, Mexico, the Houston Belize United (HBU) baseball team has made it to the playoffs in the Quintana Roo Second Division Baseball Liga ‘Sheriff’ Casanova.

The team heads to Mexico on Sunday to play a best-of-three series against the Calderita Broncos for a shot at getting into finals and winning the championship.

Pitcher/Center Fielder for HBU, Anthony “Hollywood” Smith, told Breaking Belize News (BBN) that the team currently ranks fourth in the league with a 7-5 win-loss record. Smith said that the team heads out this Sunday with the intention to show Mexico and the world that Belize is an emerging force in the sport of baseball, but also noted that the players also have a personal stake in the games ahead, having lost one of their coaches to illness earlier this year.

“We lost one of our coaches but he is there with us in heart. Every time we go out there we say ‘1,2,3, Coach Richie!’ His name was Richard Wentworth, and hopefully, we win the series in his name,” Smith said. “This is big; big for baseball, big for Belize and we’re gonna play our hearts out.”

Breaking Belize News (BBN) wishes the players and coaches of HBU all the best as they prepare to represent the country and Coach Richie at these important games.
