The Friday Rookie Kings were in action for their first game of the season against Moorabbin Black on Friday night, and it was an action-packed start, with all players enthusiastic to play.
On the night we saw some great pitching by Henry, Jonah, and JJ, with Cruz in catcher position. Moorabbin was batting well off good pitching and we saw some good fielding by the Kings and throws to bases, working well as a team.
At bat, Cruz got our first hit of the season and made it home followed by Jonah. There was some great swings, bats and even some bunting by the Kings. Whilst the pitches the Kings chose to swing at were good, we had a couple of strikeouts but it was encouraging to see everyone had a go and that these swings were all good!
A big thank you to Myles (he likes to be called Garry) for volunteering to side with the Moorabbin team who were short on players. It just goes to show that Sandringham Kings are all good sports. Well done girls and boys!
Unfortunately Moorabbins good fielding on the night and a few strong bats saw Moorabbin win the game. However, winning the game at this stage is less important, rather, playing as a cohesive team and developing our skills together is the main aim. Well done to all players. It’s lining up to be a great season and lots of fun.
