If all go's well with the weather, you will see lots of youngster's on various ball diamonds across town starting next week.
Flin Flon Creighton Ball makes the switch from fastball to hardball and there is a lot of excitement in the air. FFCB held some hardball clinics last season and they went very well, and it was decided that they would make the official switch this year.
One of the challenges besides the low numbers for this area, is most communities do not play fastball any more, so FFCB had a really tough time lining up tournaments out of town.
President Sherri Campbell and the new executive are hoping the switch to hardball will help with attendance and give kid's a chance to travel out of town. The travel teams have been practising indoors at the Sportex for a number of weeks already.
Here is the schedule for the upcoming season:
Blastball Mon/Wed 5:30-6:15 Centoba 4
T-Ball/ Parent Pitch Mon/Wed 6:15-7:30 Centoba 2&3
Rookie/Division 1 Tues/Thurs 6-7 Centoba 2&3
Mosquito/Division 2 Mon/Wed 6-7:30 Centoba 1/Creighton
Pee Wee / Division 3 Tues/Thurs 6-7:30 Centoba 1/Creighton
