April 7th marked the beginning of two baseball leagues for children and youth in Tunis, Tunisia. Players, coaches, and parents met on the rugby grounds of the historic Stade d'El Menzah in northern Tunis to open the inaugural seasons of T-Ball and Coach Pitch on a beautiful Saturday morning. The first day of the season was filled with an exciting mix of teaching and fun, as players learned the proper guidelines and fundamentals of the sport and enjoyed the spirit of competition.
The T-Ball league is made up of children aged 5-7, while Coach Pitch features youth aged 8-10. GSP Tunis created these leagues, accomplishing one of Global Sports Partners' core objectives: to increase participation in youth sports across the globe, giving new opportunities and experiences while discovering and developing talent. Because there is currently very little local opportunity to learn the game at a young age, much of the focus of the inaugural season will be on instruction and training, providing a strong knowledge base of the game for the betterment of the future of Tunisian baseball. The season schedule will continue inside Stade d'El Menzah every Saturday through May 27th.
Global Sports Partners values the construction, development, and expansion of these leagues. We continue in our commitment to increase participation and provide opportunity for youth and children all over the world. Global Sports Partners and GSP Tunis are planning even more involvement in Tunisian baseball and greatly anticipate the opportunities to come! In the meantime, we are looking forward to a fantastic opening season!
