‘Come and Try Baseball’ days on offer for all

WITH 35 Australians playing baseball professionally internationally and more than 50,000 grassroots players, baseball is booming in this nation.

First arriving in Australia over 170 years ago when American miners started playing it on the gold fields of Ballarat in the 1850s while on breaks, baseball has continued to flourish in every State.
As such, East Hills Baseball Club (EHBC) wants more to give it a go and is hosting free’ Come and Try Baseball’ days on Sundays, July 21 and August 4, 10am-12pm, with a free sausage sizzle lunch to follow.
EHBC vice president Jill Archer said if you’ve never tried baseball before, it’s not a problem.
“We will have mostly beginners with mixed teams of girls and boys in different age groups and will be taking registrations for the summer competitions on the days,” she said.
“You’ll have heaps of fun and make sure you bring a friend and have a go at batting, fielding, running and throwing.”
EHBC will be running a Lil Sluggers program for four-year-olds for eight weeks from October, with only 20 taken at a time so be sure to register early (Active Kids Vouchers accepted), while junior teams play on Saturdays and seniors on Sundays.
They play in the Cronulla Association competitions with training starting in August.
