Early this week, the Malta Baseball & Softball Association (MABS) announced they will be organizing a major event, The Malta Baseball Festival.  This highly-anticipated festival will be a charity event, and will take place on Sunday the 17th of October from 11am till 4pm at the Marsa Sports Grounds.  The event kicks off an important season for MABS, as the organization strives to promote the sports of baseball and softball around the Maltese Islands.  The charity event will be the first of its kind organized by MABS and entrance is free. 

There will be several activities open to the general public during the festival, suitable for all the family.  Adults and children could try out their skills at the Batting Cage and Pitching Net, along with other many fun stations.  Especially for children, coaches will be organising various ball games so that the young visitors can participate and try out teeball, which is an introductory game to the sports of baseball and softball.

At the event, parents will have the opportunity to sign up their children for the MABS annual baseball programme or register for a FREE trial period, where qualified coaches organise training sessions for children.  These coaches will be present at the festival, and therefore, this event would be a perfect time for parents to find out exactly what the baseball programme is all about.

The Stars from Malta’s TV and music scene will be joining the festival as well.  Finishing the day with a bang, our local celebrities will show off their skills on the diamond in a Celebrity Softball Game. For more information about the event, one can call 79708951 or 79061482.
