The Pelican Bay Flyers will be competing this weekend over in West Palm Beach Florida. The 12U and 14U teams will compete in the Palm Beach Classic today, beginning at 12:00 p.m.
They will play a double-header against teams out of West Palm Beach. Coach Brian Hanna voiced that the tournament should be an exciting and eye opening experience for the teams.
“The tournament should be very exciting and it gives each and every child an opportunity to be seen by high school and college coaches,” said coach Brian Hanna, “With the talent we are traveling with I could guarantee that scholarships are right behind. The important thing is to get these kids seen in a different light.”
Hanna furthered the club’s goal has always been to develop the young men. He added that it is also their goal at the YMCA’s Legacy Baseball Program to teach the “hardcore fundamentals of the game of baseball.
“We want to enhance each player’s ability with the understanding that they are playing baseball with a goal and purpose in mind. This will enable them to strive higher and be more productive in the community.”
He also voiced their plans for the summer which included taking the 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-15 to the United States. Hanna also voiced that they have already begun practicing for the week long tournament.
“There is an open invitation to the public and new players. We do intend to play baseball year round and during the summer months.”
Yesterday the 14U team took on a baseball club out of Canada. The 12U team attended a clinic that was instructed by the University of Miami.
