‘SURREY DOWNS WINTER BASEBALL’ IS UNDERWAY!
Roger Prime has once again provided this program for all to enjoy.
I call it ‘Picnic Baseball’ where players just come out, have a hit and some fun.
We have eight teams this season playing on Saturdays at 11:30am and 2pm – a 14 Round season.
The Canteen and Bar is open for all to enjoy too 😊
Roger has been keeping this Winter Ball trophy (seen below) with each season’s winners since before the Dodger’s were formed!
(By the way, Roger was one of the Founding Fathers of our Club back in 1990.)
Our Club’s winter program was started in 1996 and we changed our name several years ago to the
Surrey Downs Winter Baseball Club to distinguish us from the Summer club.
Come out and say ‘Hello’ if you get the chance.
It’s a fun day!
I look forward to hearing from those wanting to participate in our Jr Academy.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
