Birmingham Softball Series
Posted: Wed, 27 Apr 2016 20:37
Wednesday evening saw that launch of the Birmingham Workplace Softball Series, hosted at Tally Ho.
25 people, representing Hozelock, Fleetmilne Property and Sport Birmingham enjoyed a fantastic training session from specialised softball coaches, covering throwing and catching with the softball glove and some fielding tips, before splitting into two teams for a game.
This was the teams' chance to practice before they take to the field for real in May when the fixtures start for real.
