Hull Scorpions Baseball Club were invited to one of The Business Culture’s first networking events. Myself and Barry Marshall donned our baseball uniforms and did a short presentation on our club.
We talked about how we planned to build a baseball facility in an underused park in the east of the city, and bring baseball back to an area that during the 1960’s was the spiritual home of baseball in Hull.
Well the good news is that three years later we have just recently signed a25 year lease on a 5 acre section of Alderman Kneeshaw Park and finish the building of an inclosed baseball field complete with bleacher seating and a batters cage.
Our club now boasts a thriving junior section, ladies softball and mens baseball teams. This has been built on the back of our successful schools baseball programme where we have offered coaching sessions in local primary schools. During the summer we have hosted schools softball tournaments with teams coming from all over the city and East Yorkshire to compete.
The club is always on the lookout for people to become involved, and on Saturday 15th June we look forward to welcoming you to our baseball field so you can see it for yourself and join in The Business Culture Softball Day.
Let’s Play Ball!
