The baseball club has an eight year history.  This is their first fundraiser at the Wheelhouse.  Director Lynch explains further.

We would like to keep the teams doing tournaments for years to come.  We are not affiliated with any particular school or organization. Our club is open to all kids who want to play baseball and have the experience of traveling to various locations.”

There are currently three teams in the Club and have played in tournaments in Las Vegas and Reno Nevada.  In Southern California they have traveled to Beaumont, Perris and San Diego.
