Fate back in fighting form with 11-0 crushing of Feliz

A Fate batter waits for the ball during practice for the team's match against Feliz on Mar 28.

Filipino softball team Fate, returning to the pitch after a long break due to the pandemic, resumed their campaign in the Hong Kong Women’s Softball League with a murderous 11-0 win in six innings over Chinese team Feliz on Mar 21.

The victory on the Shek Kip Mei diamond is significant for Fate, the only Philippine softball team in the city, as the Hong Kong Softball Association’s reopening of pitches to continue games postponed last year due to the coronavirus contagion.


To the Filipinas, the triumph is a much-needed shot in the arm after they lost by just a point in their last game against local squadron Artemis on the same field in November.

Fate captain and pitcher Don Gaborno encouraged her all-domestic helper team to focus on the match and prove it wasn’t yet over for them after that loss to Artemis.


When the game got under way, Fate took an early lead as spirited play by the Filipinas long sidelined by the pitch closure showed their local rivals were the underdog.

In the first inning, the Filipinas scores three home runs courtesy of Percy Jayme, Sierra May Tebia and Chelo Garbo.

They added three home runs in the third inning through Tebia, Garbo and Don Gaborno for a 6-0 score at the end of third inning. 

Gaborno’s vaunted fast ball pitch combined with the tight defense of infielders and outfielders to make sure Fate won’t give their opponents a chance to get to home base.

Josel Ondrade added another run in the fourth inning to make the score 7-0 for Fate.

Editha Hidalgo and Bambee Abadilla also produced a run each in the fifth inning, lifting the score to 9-0.

In the last and final inning, Tebia and Garbo made two more home runs that ended the game with a total score of 11. 

Fate celebrates its win with team manager Law Wai Ho

Fate is now on its 8th year since joining the Hong Kong Softball Association. 


With the help and support of their team manager Law Wai Ho, a respected veteran in Hong Kong softball, Fate continues to reap pride for him and for Filipinos in the sport. 

Fate players have made softball their priority on Sundays, their rest day, by going to the pitch early to practice and get ready for the match.
