WHY IS THIS MAN SMILING?
Congratulations to Joel Mazurek for hitting his very first Home Run last Saturday
during his last game of the Minor Round v Glenelg!
After playing many years – since U14s and playing in our top Senior Divisions –
he finally put one over the fence!
A great way to finish the Minor Round and prepare for the finals!
Good luck, Joel. Way to go! 😊
