Our T-ball had a busy night with Dolphins having a double- header, first against Seahawks then against Stingrays. While the games were on, the other team were testing their skills doing batting and fielding drills.
Our T-ball competition had a huge turnout with a full squad for new coach Lewis for the Dolphins with some great hits from Jackson Turner. Coach Michael for the Seahawks had a full team with Chad Moreau working hard and being the stand out on the night. Coach Ben had the Stingrays who all performed well with Charles Meagher being the team’s most enthusiastic player for the evening.
For our Zooka/Junior baseball game, Stingrays were first up to bat with Charlene Keith having a beautiful hit out to 3rd base, but no runs scored for the first innings. Seahawks were next up to bat with nice hits going to Cooper Stibbard and Jack Meagher. Also big congratulations to Daniel Lawler scoring his first home run for the season out to centerfield and bringing runners in. Seahawks scored 3 runs for the 1st innings.
The second innings saw Stingrays come back in with lots of energy to score 5 runs with some good hits and a triple base run to Mason O'Rourke and Mackenzie Mannix. Singles went to Jasna Palmer, James Kellam, Adam Lonesborough, Justin Kellam and Allison Davis. Seahawks then came into bat with Brooke Palmer having a beauty of a hit to first base, but unable to bring any runs home to keep the score 5-3 to Stingrays for the win.
