“He told me to have fun and that it was still a constructive experience, summarized Bratt, as to the comments made by the coach of Canada, following the 12 to 1 loss by the Canadian team. It's always supposed to be fun to play baseball. That's what he told me.”
“I put him in a difficult situation, I'm going to take the blame for that, for his part commented Whitt, in a press conference . It's going to be okay. It was a star team on the other side.”
For the moment, Bratt cannot hide his deep disappointment, he who was credited with six earned runs in one third of an inning. He gave up three hits and three walks.
“I'm very disappointed in myself, I had to throw more strikes and trust my different shots, he said. I didn't attack the batters like I can.”
