There was a great turnout for the closing ceremony to mark the end of the 2013/14 tee-ball season. Brian Gannon, the Club’s President, thanked the players and parents for their enthusiastic participation and Denice Byrne, the Tee-Ball Chairperson, rallied up the crowd with an “I love tee-ball” chant before encouraging them to remind their parents to enrol them for the following season.

Lachlan Dale of Baseball WA also addressed the crowd while Matt Dixon from Perth Heat handed out the 100 game trophies to three of our young players. The children then got to have their photo taken with the Claxton Shield, kindly loaned by the 2014 winners Perth Heat.

Slip’n’sliding fun at Summer Training Camps

Slip n slide fun at Carine Cats Summer Training Camps
There was plenty of fun and new skills learnt at the January Summer School Holiday Tee-ball and Baseball Training Camps run by Baseballl WA and Perth Heat. Run over four days, the kids worked with players from Perth Heat to improve their batting, fielding and pitching skills.

The week ended with a fun slip’n’slide session to learn the finer points of sliding into base and a question and answer session with the professional players to get some inside knowledge on how to make it to the big league.

Thanks to Amanda, Taryn and Natasha for keeping the kids and coaches well-fed and hydrated. Check out more photos in the “Miscellaneous” Tee-ball Gallery and watch this space for news on the next training session pre-2014/15 season.

Fun and new skills with Legends of Baseball

Players from tee-ball and baseball enjoyed a real treat today when several legends of baseball from the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association kindly gave up their spare time to run a free two hour training session for the children.

Anthony Claggett (Yankees, Perth Heat), Brandon Tripp (Phillies, Perth Heat), Shane Lindsay (Rockies, White Sox, Melbourne Aces) and Mike Remlinger (Braves, Red Sox, Mariners) put the players through their paces with throwing, fielding and batting drills and finished off with a few life skills and signing of autographs. The kids had a wonderful time and are looking forward to applying their new skills when the season starts again in February.

We would like to thank the MLBPAA players for providing a wonderful morning activity for our young players. Click on the photo to be taken to more photos in our photo gallery.
