Little League Minor Match report – Royals go 3 for 3

October 24th:   Oh this baseball game is a funny one alright …. a game driven by individual statistics, but most often won by team effort. Today was no exception.

Pirates Head Home Without Treasure

October 18th:   The Sandringham Royals Reserves team outlasted a plucky Preston Pirates at Tulip Street yesterday. Despite a relatively even first couple of innings the Royals then went to work and set up their win scoring runs in the middle innings with Lyttleton, Arthur, Dunn and Beaumont all contributing with valuable RBI’s. Despite a spirited comeback by the Pirates in conjunction with some lackluster baseball by the Sandringham team, the lead built up by some good reserves baseball  proved too much

Little League Minor – Moving Forward with 2nd Win of the Season

October 17th: Our game is a complex one … it’s not about getting a ball and kicking towards a goal, or using a flat bat to hit a round ball. It’s much more difficult than that. Hitters are trying to hit a round ball with a round bat, in any direction other than where eight other fielders in fair territory are standing.  Pitchers are trying to hit a strike zone that shifts with each hitter, and is subjective at best.

The Sandringham bats were lively with Adam Diamond leading the way sparking scoring opportunities along with Hamish Ferguson and the team responded well to the call from coach May

Friday Night Rookie Ball gets Underway

October 10: The Sandy Kings and Royals opened up their 2015-16 season against our neighbourhood rivals Moorabbin on Friday night at Tulip Street. Most of these players have graduated from T-Ball last season so this is the first time they have learned how to pitch, catch and hit live pitching which is a major threshold for all the players. For the Royals, we had five pitchers and five players put on the catching gear for the first time and it

Seniors Stand Up on a Windy Day

October 10th: Sandy import pitcher Reed Mason must be wondering if baseball is always played like this….for the second week in a row, he took the mound in the 1s facing a howling wind. The Springvale Lions visited the Sandringham Royals at Tulip Street with at times gale force winds making play difficult. Sandringham hit the ball well, scoring runs in the 3rd, 5th, and 3 in the 6th off Lions starter Luke Anderson. Reed showed that the wind again

Sunday Little League Minor Royals kick off with a Win

October 10th: I love this game, and I love the start of each new season … It promises so much, and the most exciting thing is watch the kids develop. But this was an impressive start. Not because of the win, but because of how we went about it. It’s never easy to kick off a new season – new teams, new coaches, new players in amongst a variety of unknowns, but pleasingly it didn’t seem to worry our boys
