Heike is Mark’s wife and the mom to all that come into the house. She is a born Netherlander but is now a hardcore Cape Townian. Heike goes to work during the day and comes home to the extended family and is available for any of the issues that Coach Mark might have created during the day (as he with his special flavor of crazy, sometimes does)

Heike keeps the family together with her special ability to be sensitive and caring, as all mothers are. She is The Baseball Academy’s biggest fan, scoring matches, driving and fetching people and when camping or doing something, just being in the background making it all happen.
