JCB Opening Day was on Saturday, March 3rd. Perfect weather made for a great day of baseball.
In addition to some exciting baseball, the festivities included a DJ with music and player introductions and announcements for Rookies division teams.
Additionally we had representatives from the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, family photo booth opportunities, peanut and snow cone vendors.
The JCB Board will be reviewing opportunities for similar activities on other weekends this spring. Stay tuned for more!
In an effort to provide our players and parents the best instruction in the northeast Florida, JCB partnered with current and former Major League Baseball players this fall to conduct player workouts with our recreation and AB/All-Star teams. The program has been a huge success with the players and parents and will be continuing throughout the 2018 Spring season as well. The coaching focuses on hitting, fielding, pitching and individual position instruction such as catching. The costs for the program are included in fall and spring registration fees. Below are a few photos from the program this fall.
Field of Dreams is a specially designed baseball field that will allow mentally or physically handicap kids the opportunity to play baseball. To wear a uniform and play as a member of a team. A place where all our areas exceptional kids can meet on the field and play ball. What kid does not want to hear the cheering of the crowd? What kid does not want to receive a trophy? And what kid does not want the opportunity to play Americas favorite sport? At the Field of Dreams they will and can thanks to the numerous volunteers such as Julington Creek Baseball. Julington Creek teams from 11U to 15U volunteered as “Buddies” on February 24th to make memories for all the Field of Dreams kids and families. Without the Buddies, Field of Dreams couldn’t exist. That’s why we hope all our JCB kids come out next year to make new memories for these exceptional kids.
