My kids, who are all absolute beginners in Baseball, picked up the basics in no time. Gareth, was the very patient, kind and absolutely awesome coach for the kiddos. They started off with some baseball progression training by kicking a soccer ball to begin with, then moving up to a tennis racquet and then to a T-Ball stand with a soft baseball bat. There were shrieks of laughter from my kids, as they darted about.
We stopped for lunch and to keep our American theme going, we all had a hotdog with mustard.
The kids all got a goody bag to take home with them. It included a Brisbane Bandits t-shirt, team cap, buff and other cool stuff and some all-American Swizzle sticks!
Josh has a lot of growing room in his top.
My kids loved it so very, very much, and keep talking about it. I think we may have to look into sign up days for our local club.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Mt Gravatt Eagles Baseball Club and Baseball Queensland for such an enjoyable morning.
