It's that time of year again, Summer season is just around the corner. After a great winter season in which we fielded 4 teams, it's time again to turn our focus to summer baseball.
Not long ago at our AGM we elected our new President Todd Clarkson and Vice President Bryan Livett with Avi Lewis and Pete Smith continuing in their Secretary and Treasurer roles. Additionally we have Simon Leicht and Josh Smart joining Sean O'Halloran, Justin Ramirez and Jeff Kuhl as Directors on the Board. With a strong leadership team and renewed commitment to improving all aspects of our club we enter this summer season with lots to look forward to.
We are proud to announce Eddie Escalona as this years club coach. As most of you know Eddie has been doing a fantastic job with the coaching staff developing our junior sides and is one of the most knowledgeable baseballers on the club. With a passion for teaching and success Eddie will continue the legacy of strong coaching ability coming from within the club to strengthening the clubs on-field culture.
Our Season Begins on October 1st and runs through to February with finals in March 18'. Training for summer will begin on Sunday September 3rd from 1-3pm and continue each Sunday through the end of September when we will switch to Thursday training from 6-8PM. Of course, our Thursday training will always end with team announcements and a few drinks up in the clubhouse.
