The BSL’s 2014 season is inching closer following a successful turn out at the first of our Softball 4 Beginners sessions. With 13 new faces and the support of the BSL’s committee members and league players, an entertaining and lively training session was had by all.
Our Qualified coach Peter Burgess started the evening off guiding all our new comers in the basic skills of catching and throwing. Within 5 minutes it was obvious we had a lot of natural Softball players with great potential.
The evening progressed to cover the rules of base running, leading into a mini game with mixed teams of both new comers and current BSL members. With Pete on hand to instruct individuals on how to hold the bat, where to stand and give tips on how to improve their swing, it was here that we discovered some amazing hitting and outfield catching skills!
The night ended in a social get together at the BSL’s usual drinking spot; The Church Tavern, where both new comers and league members got the chance to mingle and get to know one another.
Overall this was an extremely positive start to our Softball 4 Beginners course with more new comers expected to join in the forthcoming weeks.
