Baseball action heats up

THE Gympie Baseball Club has had a bumper season and are heading into the business end of the year.

Semi-finals were supposed to be held last night at Jack Stokes Oval but club officials were tossing up whether or not to cancel because of wet weather.

Club spokesperson Carol Stubbs said if the finals were called off they would probably hold them on Monday night at Jack Stokes.

She said the grand final would be held on Wednesday night, February 29.

The club has had its best ever season with more than 120 kids kitting up to play baseball and tee-ball.

The highlight for the club is two players; Reimarley O'Donaghue and Samuel Stubbs have been selected to play in the Sunshine Coast side at the Secondary School Queensland Championships.

Benjamin Stubbs is playing for Brisbane Norths in the little league state championships and Daniel Stubbs if off to Colorado to play baseball in July.

Gympie is also sending a team to Runcorn in Brisbane to play in a round-robin competition against a variety of big name Brisbane sides.

Previous visits to the city have seen the Gympie side well received and the team competitive against larger clubs.

"It is the biggest year we have ever had," Stubbs said.

"The game keeps growing.

"The kids have done well and are really improving their skills."

Anyone who would like more information can phone Carol Stubbs on 0400 232 150 or Greg Stubbs on 0417 911 485.
