Welcome back to Eagles Baseball and it’s great to see that we have the numbers for an U17 team this coming season.
Just an update about training and apologies that the communications have been a bit slow, but I assume that you have all just returned from school holidays anyway.
You will be coached the year by the three US imports to the club which is exciting as they bring a wealth of knowledge about the game and terrific enthusiasm as well. Boomer (some of you know him from last year) is returning having won the A Grade MVP for Canberra last year, and Ed Warren and Steve Farkas who are both hard throwing left handed pitchers from North Carolina will be assisting. The guys are new to town so please make them feel very welcome.
As some of you will be playing seniors as well, we have decided to run a dedicated u17 session on Monday nights from 5pm and a second training with the seniors on Thursday nights. If you can only make one session (exams may just pop up) the Monday would be the one.
We don’t have a draw yet so I’m unsure about midweek games etc, but I would expect at the very least there will be 4 clubs fielding teams on a Saturday which is great news.
Having spent the last few years with you guys, I’ll come down and introduce you to the American boys on Monday at 5.
