We hope you are all doing well and enjoying the second half of the baseball season. Things are really ramping up now for all teams and volunteers around the club, and we wish all teams luck in their endeavours for the rest of the season, and maybe even into the postseason!
We will open up nominations for Club Player and Person of the Year in coming weeks, so please have a think of who you believe around the club deserves the award this season.
This season the club has changed photographer to Clisbert Creations, run by Robyn Ebert. Clisbert Creations is a local business to our area, and Robyn comes highly recommended from some of our members after her business has provided their other sports photos in the past.
There is a make-up session on Monday, 20 February at 5:30pm for anyone that was unable to attend this week. Please attempt to attend if you have missed out this week and let your coach know.
Photos for baseball and any additional ones for T-Ball can be ordered below:
– 8×12 Team/Individual Combo for $30
– 8×12 Team Photo for $30
– 5×7 Individual Photo for $15
– 8×12 Family Photo for $15

A special mention goes to our very own Michael Phillips, who was part of the scoring team on the night.
