It was a great sports weekend. A summer sun shone on the Zaan sports fields, a big party was celebrated at the new club KVZ ’23 and the ladies of ZV de Zaan became champions of the Netherlands.
Unfortunately, the men fell just short and finished in second place. In addition, there was still plenty to experience.
Here are the sports results of May 12, 13 and 14.

Saturday May 13
A first win of the season for Odiz Frogs. Coach Eric Stans reports the following to us:
‘We played very well against Hoofddorp pioneers. Offensively, too many runners were left behind, so only 5 runs were scored with 15 basehits. Pitchers Arend Göbel and Randy v/d Aa had little trouble with the weak hitting team of pioneers.’
|4th class B men||Hoofddorp pioneers 3 – Odiz Frogs||2-5|
It was such a special afternoon at sports park Hoornseveld. ZKV and ZKC ’31 played against each other once more and will now continue together as KVZ ’23. There was a large audience, a lovely sun, a tombola and the honor of the last victory went to ZKV. The Hurricane reported.
Furthermore, all clubs came into action again on the field and it was noticeable that almost all Zaanse clubs won.
