Softballers make the junior grades
SATURDAY'S junior softball gradings has prompted a T-ball competition to be played on Wednesday afternoons.
With between approximately 50 and 60 youngsters trying out in the sport, Gladstone Softball Association publicity officer Joanne Beach says those who cannot play on Saturday mornings have an alternative.
"We thought we'd have a Wednesday competition from about 4pm and it's for kids who can't make it on Saturday,” Beach said.
She added there were several newcomers who attended the gradings in what were ideal conditions during the morning and early afternoon.
"We had new families come with the T-ballers and we had about 30 in the 10 to 15 year age range with a couple new players in the 12 to 13 year group attend,” Beach said.
