Peewee baseball: Silver Bay teams learn fundamentals
Kids and parents alike took advantage of sunny weather to play and watch baseball Monday, July 2, at the Mary MacDonald Center in Silver Bay.
The Silver Bay Blue and Gold Peewee teams, ages 7-9, faced off in an umpire pitch game before starting the Fourth of July midseason break. Polar League All-Star Ero Wallin took a break from his summer job painting with the Silver Bay recreation department to pitch and make calls in the field.
The players studied Wallin’s underhand pitches and kept the bases full for most of the afternoon. The Gold team built a significant lead in the early innings and survived a late-inning rally to take home a 16-8 win over the Blue team.
In the end, players lined up to shake hands and coaches Mike Hoff and Jon Nelson reminded their players to get their parents outside to practice catching and hitting during the break.
