 Mr. Baseball DOUBLE YOU

Baseball Player Active in the Years 1961 – 1977

Member of Royal Scorpions B.B.C.

 Achievements on the field are of great importance to any athlete. They captivate the spectator’s attention, turning the player into an idol. Equally important are the on-field achievements, serving as examples of dedication, discipline, and camaraderie.

 The brief introduction we just presented is to continue with the presentation of WILLIE PIETERS, a baseball player and active member of the ROYAL SCORPIONS BASEBALL CLUB at the time of his tragic death on February 2, 1978.

 For approximately 16 years, WILLIE PIETERS actively participated in the top tier of baseball, consistently standing out in various player groups, whether in regular championships or local, inter-island, or international tournaments.

 Even though memories of his achievements are still vivid, and most of those present here remember him well, we find it necessary to mention some of his accomplishments to provide a basis for the decision to include him in our HALL OF FAME. If the information we provide is not exhaustive, what we can offer is sufficient for our purpose.

 In 1965, the late Willy Pieters became the batting champion of the Beproma tournament. He achieved this distinction again in the years 1967, 1968, 1969, and, finally, in 1977. He also became the home run champion in the years 1970 and 1974.

 In 1968, he received the Most Valuable Player award, and in 1972, he was honored as the Athlete of the Year.

 In 1967, we have the data that he achieved the triple crown, being the batting champion, having the most hits, and driving in the most runs. Additionally, he had the most home runs, doubles, triples, and runs scored.

 In the inter-island tournaments, Willy Pieters stood out. It’s worth mentioning that he was part of the winning team of Firestone that took the first title of Antillean Baseball in the 1960s.

 Regarding his international achievements, it’s noteworthy that in 1970, during the Pan American Games in Panama, despite Antilles losing all 8 games, he emerged as the batting champion with an average of 560 points among 162 participants. In 1967, he was recognized as the best player in the tournament held in the Netherlands, and in 1972, he became the player with the most home runs in a tournament held that year.

 In 1976, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Curaçaose Baseball Associatie, during an international tournament, the organization dedicated the event to Willy Pieters as recognition for his contribution to the sport.

 Despite being hailed as a superstar by the press, Willy Pieters proved his dedication to his beloved sport by coaching teams, acting as an umpire for lower-level categories in which he participated, and, in general, doing everything within his reach to promote his beloved sport. It is essential to highlight his exemplary conduct both on and off the field, where he remains a cherished teammate, whether part of the team or the selection.

 His enthusiasm for the game, coupled with a sense of humor, invites those around him to experience the best on the field.

 In short, this is what we can present today as we designate WILLY PIETERS as a member of our SPORTS HALL OF FAME, C.S.F.
