Great Britain Teammates Homer In Triple-A Series

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – BJ Murray broke out a recent slump at the plate, highlighted by his third home run of the season.






BJ Murray broke out a recent slump at the plate, highlighted by his third home run of the season.

Murray hit a solo home run in the second inning of his Iowa Cubs’ 4-3 loss to the Syracuse Mets yesterday. It was the second home run of the inning for the Cubs, but they were unable to hold on to the 3-0 lead as they fell to 8th in the International League standings.

The adjustment to Triple-A has been a struggle at times this season for Murray with a .169/.283/.280 slash line through 35 games.

Murray is Rule 5 eligible after this season.

Earlier in the series and on the other side of the matchup, Trayce Thompson homered for the Mets in Tuesday’s 8-7 win over the Cubs.

Through 48 Triple-A games, he’s hitting .271 with 3 home runs.

Both Murray and Thompson were a part of the Bahamian contingent that participated for Team Great Britain in their historic run at the World Baseball Classic.

Track & Field

Primary school track and field will take center stage next week at the 2024 edition of Frank “Pancho” Rahming Championships.

The Ministry of Education, Technical and Vocational Training (MOETVT) and the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture (MOYSC), will host the meet May 21-23 at the original Thomas A. Robinson Track and Field Stadium, under the theme ‘Ringing a New Era of Sporting Excellence’. The meet will feature over 30 schools from the Family Islands and over 15 from New Providence over the course of the three-day event.


A Bahamian basketball prospect is making the move from Division Two to Division One.

Zion Richardson will join the Cal State Fullerton Titans for the upcoming 2024-25 season. A 6′ 4″ guard, he spent last season at Quincy University where he averaged 17.7 points and 7.2 rebounds per game in 26 appearances.

Richardson began his career at the Division I level but played sparingly for Wofford University, averaging just over a point and a rebound per contest. He then spent a redshirt season at South Plains Community College before signing with Quincy.
