British Baseball Federation: Opening Day Programme (2 April)

On behalf of the British Baseball Federation, we invite you to attend Opening Day at Farnham Park (Slough) on Sunday, 2 April 2017.

We have organised a full day of events on the same day at our national baseball and softball complex – Farnham Park (Slough). Catering and support will be available thanks to BaseballSoftballUK (BSUK).

Parking available on the grounds.

A great fun atmosphere of baseball and something for everyone, so join us.

PROGRAMME

Doubleheader – game one starts at 12:00 (main diamond). Entrance is free.

Elite Baseball Training (youths and seniors) – Justin Stone (starting at 09:30)

  • Justin teaches approximately 3,000 players (youth and adults) from across the US each year (teaching hitting, defense, pitching and catching).

  • Elite trained players (+1,000) have committed to US schools all over the country, from Arizona to Florida St., as well as schools in every major BCS conference.
  • Plus, Elite-trained players have gone on to play professionally.

Youth Mix-n-Match Competition (starting at 09:30)

Youths are welcome to register regardless of their skill. We will organise games throughout the day for youths based on their age and skills. No team entry required as individual players are welcomed. A great opportunity for youths to meet and play with other players from around the country. Coaches will be on hand to organise and oversee all of the games. Age groups will be from:

  • 7-10 (Minors)
  • 9-12 (Majors)
  • 13-16 (Juniors)
  • 15-18 (Seniors)

Game schedules will be based on how many youths register in advance. After that schedules and times will be announced on or before 27 March.

Please if you would like to participate and receive Elite Instruction and/or participate (youths only) in our Mix-n-Match please register in advance. If you would like to coach and/or volunteer to assist on the day we ask you further register. Places are limited, so it is first-registered-first-only basis, so register now.
