A cross section of Officers and Marines from The Royal Bahamas Defence Force paused from their stressful duties to exert some energy and experience a bit of competitive bonding with their fellow servicemen and servicewomen this weekend in a friendly game of slow pitch softball.
Organized by the Training Department, namely Chief Petty Officer James Darling, teams from the Officer Ranks, Senior Rates, Able Seamen and Marine Seamen faced off with each other. Commander Defence Force, Commodore Tellis Bethel threw the first pitch and commended organizers and participants alike, wishing the best team would truly emerge victorious.
The Able Seaman and the Senior Rates were the last two teams standing by the day’s end, and youth won over experience in the final minutes as the Able Seamen plundered on, taking no prisoners with a final score of 12 to 0! Members were very pleased at the return of the sporting events and look forward to Flag Football later next month.
