Buddy Reed started it, Connor MacDonald finished it and Donald Lutz joined the three home run party in between on a crazy day of ABL action on Sunday. The trio all homered three times, doubling in size the ABL three-homer game club in the space of less than nine hours, as a mammoth 85 runs were scored across three games.

Import Marc Wik out to ignite the Adelaide Bite’s playoff push

THERE were years Adelaide import Marc Wik was not allowed to play baseball while growing up — now he is a key in the Bite’s ABL playoff push. “I was very athletic (at school) but my grades didn’t help my progress with that — you need grades to play and some years I didn’t have those to be eligible,” Wik, a Houston Astros prospect, said.

Where Aldi wants to set up $5m shop in Adelaide’s east

SUPERMARKET giant Aldi wants to open a store at Hawthorn, in Adelaide’s inner south east. The discount supermarket chain has approached the state’s peak planning authority to oversee its plan to open a store on the corner of Belair and Angas roads, just 150m from Mitcham Square shopping centre. Aldi is yet to lodge its development application but a Development Assessment Commission (DAC) report includes the German company’s plan to build a 1600 sq m supermarket on the site.

Dad forced to apply for approval from Mitcham Council to keep kids’ cubby house

WHEN Chris Della Vedova and his two boys, Zach and Harry, started building a cubby house on the Easter long weekend last year they thought it would bring the family years of enjoyment.

About

David Penrose

I am an Adelaide-based freelance journalist who previously worked at The Messenger for two years.

I have covered general news and a wide range of sports.

I also covered the Adelaide Bite's 2015/16 Australian Baseball League campaign, producing three to seven stories each week on top of my Messenger duties.

I have a strong interest in sports journalism, and also the rapidly changing digital landscape.

In addition to The Messenger and Advertiser I have had work published by a range of outlets, including Fox Sports, the Australian Open website, Australian Ice Hockey League website, Adelaide Bite website, and the Australian Baseball League website.

I started off as a regular contributor with the Messenger, producing between 8-12 articles across the 11 versions of the paper each week. In summer I covered Turf Cricket, while in winter I covered the Amateur and Southern football leagues.

In the past I have produced a weekly magazine for the Volleyball South Australia State League.

I also run a couple of online publications – ABL Stats and SANFL Stats – in my own time.
