Pee Wee leads the way

Pee Wee baseball re-emerged on the Far North Coast this summer with nine schools providing 14 teams for the Under 12 competition.

South Lismore Public School seniors team dominated the league ladder, with an abundance of outstanding players, while Our Lady of Help Christian School, provided a handful of determined opponents. Far North Coast life member, Bill OSullivan, offered quality direction for both their teams, the Mustangs and the Blades, so it is hardly surprising they excelled.

In terms of pure numbers, St Carthages provided three teams, which all thrived under the guidance of the Marist Brothers Club.

Goonellabah Public, Bexhill, Caniaba, Lismore Heights, Wyrallah Road and Albert Park also offered their students a chance to get out from in front of their personal computers and enjoy some organised sport.

The league continues for a further three weeks before the start of the baseball season proper and players in years 4 to 8 are invited to participate. The cost per game is just $2 and all equipment is supplied. Players need only turn up at Albert Park on Thursday at 4.30pm to get a game.

For those interested in playing the regular season, Far North Coast Baseball will be running sign-on/muster days on Tuesdays at 5pm beginning March 13 and running until April 3.
