Juniors of all ages had a ball at the Bellarine Bears Baseball Club’s come and try T-ball day.

Events were held at Leopold and Ocean Grove, attracting about 70 girls and boys eager to get baseball a go.

Plenty of coaches were on hand to teach throwing, fielding and batting.

Training for juniors is on Tuesdays at Wallington Recreation Reserve from 5-6pm. Anyone who missed out on the come and try day can head down on a Tuesday night to join in.

The club will be running T-ball on Sunday mornings from May 2.

Teams for under-12, under-14 and under-16 will also run, with the season commencing on April 24.

The Bears will have two women’s teams competing in the Geelong competition and are looking for more recruits to join the fun.
