EventsPosted by admin Sun, December 04, 2016 16:19:16

To celebrate the start of the 2017 youth baseball season, Leicester Blue Sox are organising a joint Juniors & Little Sox club trip to Wembley on Sunday 26 March 2017.

The day has been planned as follows:

Morning - Trip to the Baseball batting cages at Northwick Park (near Wembley)

Playgolf London is home to the UK’s first automatic American-style baseball and softball batting cages. The venue boasts authentic USA style pitching machines set up for all levels of player.

  • Slow Pitch Softball: suitable for ages 6+
  • Fast Pitch Softball: grown-ups, 3 speeds
  • 3-speed Baseball: small balls, harder to hit

No need to bring anything down, equipment (helmet and baseball bat) is provided with our booking.

Afternoon - England vs Lithuania at Wembley Stadium

With Christmas now just around the corner, the FA are pleased to let everyone know that they’ll be running a special offer on tickets for England v Lithuania – the Three Lions’ first home match of 2017.

If you book before 12 December, as well as receiving your tickets in time for Christmas Day, you will also receive the following special gifts with each order:

• One voucher to collect a free match day programme on the day of the game
• One exclusive England Christmas card from the Senior Men’s England team

Tickets are now on general release and are £20 adult and £10 child in the family enclosure.

Link to purchase tickets here (you can enrol as an FA member for free)

Once the club knows how many members have booked tickets for the England game, we will then arrange a club booking for baseball batting cages for those who are interested and then divide the cost between those attending.

Note: if you only want to do one of the activities that's fine, once we know final numbers we will arrange a location for a pre-match lunch with interested members to toast the beginning of the 2017 season.
