Stettler U10 baseball house league starts season

The Stettler U10 home league teams, Stettler 1 and 2 played their first game of the season and had a great time getting used to the pace.

With the weather holding up a little better the past few days, the ball diamonds had some action on Monday, May 1.

The Stettler U10 home league teams, Stettler 1 and 2 played their first game of the season and had a great time getting used to the pace.

“Both teams played really well,” said Stettler 1 coach Martha MacPherson. “It was our first time on the diamond as the weather has not cooperated and the girls played great, with both teams scoring runs.”

Not yet at the competitive level, MacPherson said that along with the other coaches, she is hoping to teach the girls proper pitching and throwing mechanics.

“Learning all the infield positions along with batting skills too is high on the list,” MacPherson added. “For some players this is their first season of ball and so we have to teach many new skills, but hopefully all the girls will experience each position and can feel confident to play any infield position.”

For U10, the season consists of house league games on Monday or Wednesday nights with practices on Tuesday. Consisting of four teams, the league will host a home tournament in the first weekend of June.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to all the parents and siblings that have volunteered their time to coach and umpire for this age group this season,” MacPherson said.
