Bashaw Minor Ball had some great success the last few years with the help of many generous donations.
It was started up again in 2011 with two girls softball teams and some Learn to Play programs. There were two girls teams for three years.
In 2014 and 2015 we had one softball team of 10 players. Last season numbers jumped from those 10 players to 64, and then swelled to 92 this year.
This is very exciting for the membership and community. This year there were six teams (2 girls and 4 boys) playing in community leagues and one young mixed team that had exhibition games with neighbouring communities.
Teams have been improving and learning many things to build on their ball skills. This year a very successful skills clinic and two pitching clinics were hosted for older players and coaches to learn many things about ball.
There are coaches looking at some provincial play for next year so Bashaw Minor Ball is looking forward to seeing players continue to build their ball skills and have fun playing an exciting game.
These photos celebrate the teams and their busy year.
