The day has finally arrived! Tomorrow morning the Redcoats U12 baseball and softball team will fly to Treviso airport, Venice to play baseball games and softball games against teams from the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region of Italy.

Their first baseball game will be against Tigers Cervignano on Friday afternoon. After the baseball game they will play a shortened coach-pitch baseball game against the same opponents.

The following morning they will play a softball game against the Softball School of the Fruil’81 Softball Club. The Redcoats’ U12s are more used to playing coach pitch games and this should be a good challenge for the girls and boys in red.

Their final commitment will be another player-pitch baseball game against White Sox Buttrio on Sunday morning. Once again this will be followed by a shortened coach-pitch baseball game.

Our girls and boys along with their coaches have worked REALLY hard to prepare for this trip which was made possible by the Ministry for Gozo through the Promotion of Sports, Initiatives and Facilities Scheme 2022. Visit Gozo provided the Club with souvenirs which the players will give to their opponents to promote Gozo as a destination of excellence.

TO DARE IS TO DO – only by trying one can achieve, the motto that was selected for this trip. The Redcoats will be doing their utmost to perform at their best. By travelling abroad and taking on more experienced teams they give themselves an opportunity to do well.

The young Redcoats will be sporting their new uniforms for these games.
