TBALL 2015 13/6/15

TBALL is going along well. The numbers remain about 20 each week and there is no doubt that the skills are developing. The drills that are done in the first 30 minutes or so of each session are being taken in and then displayed during the games. As coaches we watch and to see a young player make a great stop of a hard hit ball after many weeks of missing them makes our day complete. And when we see players instinctively making plays at the ‘right’ bases we know we are on the right track.

The coaching stocks remain high - last Saturday while coach Peter rested his man flu we were again well served by Steve Williams, Adrian Rice, David Hair, James Holley, and Ben Utting. And we must not forget the behind the scenes work of Rob Leary as he takes care of collecting fees, distributing tops (the new ones finally arrived!), chasing up caps and generally going all the paperwork.

It was great to be able to watch 2 games in action – perhaps not 9 per side but it does mean more times at bat and more chances to practice the fielding.

Many thanks to Megan Utting for the after game treat which is the real reason we think that the players keep coming each week. We have no volunteer for next week so if someone wants to put their hand up please call Peter on 0401906515 before Thursday night. We always have the fall back of coach Peter whipping something up! 

Keep up the good KNOX TBALLERS – you are doing really well and getting better each week. 

As well as some very good youngsters we are fortunate to have a group of supportive and enthusiastic parents – and in some cases grand parents.
