Taunton Muskets Baseball Club ready to shoot


AFTER narrowly missing out on the Championship Final game in the 2021 season, the Taunton Muskets are looking to go even further this coming season.

They hope to revisit their successful seasons in 2015 and 2016 – where they lifted the SWWBL trophy – and the Covid-hit season in 2020 where they qualified to represent the SWWBL in the national finals.

Taunton Muskets formed in 2013 and have gone from strength to strength ever since.

And exciting times lie ahead with the prospect of the club continuing to grow.

Taunton Muskets team manager Jake Palmer said: “We continue to grow and develop as a club and we are looking to move forward this year and qualify for the national play-offs again. .”

The Muskets pride themselves on being an inclusive club that welcomes people of all skill levels, genders and ages – providing competitive game time for everyone.

During the pre-season, the Muskets signed new players and worked hard to improve the standards of the team.

That includes starting pitchers Jake Palmer and Al Troake who looked to improve on their impressive performances on the mound last season.

The club were delighted to host the Championship final at their home ground in Victoria Park, Taunton, where they welcomed around 100 players and spectators on the day last season ended.

The Muskets start the 2022 campaign at the Bristol Buccaneers on April 10, before hosting the Weston Jets at Victoria Park on Sunday April 24.

As already mentioned, they are always looking for new players and volunteers.
