Over 100 baseball enthusiasts of all ages attended the highly successful Jerusalem Lion's Baseball Club Parent Information Night at Kraft Stadium attending by both veterans and many new faces.
The kids were introduced to six baseball skill areas. For many of them it was their first time picking up a bat or ball. Jerusalem parent volunteer Naomi Schacter and her team worked hard at registering the large crowd of baseball enthusiasts.
Jerusalem Regional Director Howie Osterer welcomed everyone to the first event of its kind and noted that the success of the evening and the whole Jerusalem Lions Baseball program is a result of the ongoing support of so many volunteers and coaches. He invited parents to sign up with their team and to share some of the duties that often fall on the coaches such as carpooling to games, arranging snacks, fundraising, etc.
The Jerusalem parents warmly welcomed our new IAB National Director Nate Fish, who ran an excellent coaching clinic in late August at Kraft Stadium. Coaches received coaching manuals and many new skills to take back to their teams.
Baseball in Jerusalem is growing. We welcome old and new baseball players back to the Greatest Game ever... no experience needed... we will even lend you a glove!
