Come and try baseball
BOYS and girls aged between 8 and 13 years interested in giving baseball a go have an opportunity today at the Six Mile Oval.
A new baseball club is being established in Gympie and to help recruit players, a come-and-try day has been organised.
Starting at 10am, participants can try their luck at hitting a home run or landing an impressive catch out in the field.
Parents with questions about the sport will be able to speak with representatives on the day that will only be too keen to lend a helping hand.
Meanwhile, those who register to play for the 18-week competition, costing $80, will receive a pack of sporting gear, including a back pack, water bottle, baseball, shirt, cap and a brand new glove.
Today’s come-and-try day begins at 10am and finishes at 12 noon.
The Six Mile Oval can be found opposite the Roadcraft Drivers’ Education Centre, heading south along the Bruce Highway.
Additional details may be obtained by contacting Carol Stubbs on 0400 232 150 or by emailing
The come-and-try day ends a period of promotion of the sport with organisers hopeful numbers will enable healthy competition.
