All Aboard....

Mar. 7, 2018

  The Belmont Bandits crew is very excited to be part of the opening ceremonies at the brand new Shipyard Park down in Charleston this weekend. It is hard to imagine that a set of ballfields could be any nicer or more beautiful than this setup they have created down in South Carolina. I know our fans and parents are excited about making the trip. We hope to play some good baseball while down there, and we KNOW there will be excellent teams signed up and ready for competition.

Teams from South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina and beyond will be involved and that little stretch of states will provide you with as good 10u baseball talent as you will find. We are excited to see the great players and teams, and try our hand at competing against them. We are a small town team with 100% Belmont boys;  it is unlikely we will see many other teams there with a 2 mile x 2 mile radius of "talent" that makes up their team like ours is built. We have not moved anyone into town or recruited other team's players. It could be a tough weekend;  we are playing all D-1 teams on Saturday, and also playing D-1 "11u" teams on Sunday. It's always good to see what next level you are aspiring to get near. Also, an hour and fifteen minute time limit is always tough because it's not a full game, so we will have to make some adjustments on the fly to the time, the field size and the intense competition we run into all weekend long. We hope our guys get better and understand this wonderful game provides humility much like life does when you go seek out competition against the best.

It's an honor to see these other organizations, and be a part of this historic weekend in such a historic city. I would guess this ballpark will be a destinational mecca for travel ball teams around the country in the near future. Can't wait to make these memories. Go Bandits!
