Siblings pitch, bat way to successful season

AN inclusive sport where everyone gets a go at fielding and batting, the great sport of T Ball and Baseball has been played at East Hills Baseball Club for over 50 years.

Boys and girls compete in mixed teams in the Cronulla Sutherland Junior Baseball Competition between September to March each year.
Last summer saw two such players, siblings Liam and Alannah Cavanough, among the best players.
Big brother Liam’s number one fan, Alannah received the Banks Outstanding Sporting Achievement Award presented by Banks MP David Coleman.
Liam also had a great season including being selected for Cronulla Sutherland Junior Baseball Association Little League Minor Team that played in the Warriors Tournament; selection in the Little League Minors All Stars Team that won the BNSW 2019 Age 10/11 State Championships; selection in East Hills Little League Minor Division 1 team who were grand finalists; and was awarded Little League Diamond Backs’ Most Valuable Player for 2018-19.

Selected for the Baseball Talented Sports Program at Endeavour Sports High when he starts high school next year, Liam was also fortunate to be part of the NSW Junior Baseball team that played in Japan in July.
Alannah and Liam will be playing for East Hills Baseball Club at Panania this summer; Alannah in T Ball Major division and Liam playing in the Little League Majors division starting on September 14. Home games are played at Kelso North Baseball Park on Saturday mornings.
If your child would like to join in the fun, there are still positions available in different age groups.
