Womens Adult Baseball League

Womens Adult Baseball League

The Mens Adult Middle Georgia Baseball League has been getting many request to have a womens league. So with the many request we have decided to try it out for one season and see what come of it.  

We will suggest for our first season we are only trying to fill two female teams and  play between five and ten  games and each game is only 7 innings long with 10 players in the field. If you are intrested in playing some Hardball with the your Girl friends now is the time to join. We are looking to have a manager for each team that can play also.

Practices will be indoors at the Georgia Sports Academy where you can rent out the batting cages and pitchers mounds to get ready. most practices will be late in the evening. If you cant make the practices you can special request a hitting or pitching coach to work with you on your skills.

 

Step 1... Google BLOG

Step 1... Google BLOG

That's right. I had to get a proper definition of what a 'BLOG' actually is. Sure, I've read a couple. I just needed to be sure.

My first 'Blog', I guess, should be about the excitement that was this weekend's Cherry Blossom events. Thursday, I had not yet attended many of the activities of the past week and a half as I was a part of the huge group of Staff Students and volunteers at Macon State College responsible for making the Balloon Glow come off without a hitch! Though tired, I decided to venture out to Central City to experience some of it for myself.

I arrived in time to see Mighty Mcfly take the stage playing all of the Hits from my High School days and now, the 'old school' songs my son plays in The Middle School Band. After making a couple jokes with my Hipster friends, we all came to the realization that these guys were pretty tough. Anyone that can nail the solos of Neal Schon, and Eddie Van Halen is okay by me!
