New Look Royals

New 5 year plan established for Royals uniforms

new-look-royals-smThe 2012 Fredericton Minor Baseball AGM put into place some new faces and for the first time a uniform policy that will bring consistant branding throughout the organization for the next 5 years.  Tim O'Hara became the new Vice-President, taking over from Jason Fitzgerald who had to step down because of the illness of his daugther.  Tony Hay became the new Field Coordinator, Tracy Allen, Bantam Coordinator and Adam Humphrey has taken over the Rookie division as the 2013 coordinator.   As part of the new business for 2013 was the plan to update and bring consistency to the uniforms within the organization.  Equipment Coordinator Andrew Connolly and President Paul Hornibrook put together a presentation to the board that would see all uniforms updated for the competitive teams in 2013 and the same for recreational teams in 2014.   The uniforms will be a consistant style with two of the colors shown, California blue and Royal blue and the FMBA logo embroidered on the sleeve and Royals logo on the front with the number and New Brunswick flag on the back.  A top quality New Era type hat will also be part of the new look as well a similar red jersey will be offered with the same embroidery.  Pant style will include white or grey with a royal blue pinstrip down the side.  Belts will be also available in royal blue, black or red.  Board members asked a number of good questions including if teams desire to get second jersey color and hat.  Teams would be in charge of paying for the second set of jerseys and would be required to have the uniform embrodiered and labelled exactly as the approved jersey's presented to the board and approved.  The motion passed unanimosly and production of the uniforms will begin over the next month or so.   FMBA, as always, is greatful to all it volunteers and is looking for a Rally Cap, Mosquito and Pee Wee coordinator for 2013.  If you are interested, please contact President Paul Hornibrook.

Former Jays share their baseball knowledge

samuel-blue-jays

Moncton NB - As every player knows, if your serious about your baseball, a chance to learn from Major League level players can do nothing but help.  Players from FMBA recently attended the Blue Jays Honda Supercamps in Moncton and were able to meet and learn from former Toronto Blue Jays Roberto Alomar, Jesse Barfield, and Duane Ward just to name a few.  Some 100 kids ages 10-16 were put through their paces and provided technical training to help them improve their game.  FMBA's Sam Tingley was one of some 12 players from our area who attended the camp and enjoyed some time getting photos with both Roberto Alomar and Jesse Barfield.  Another player from Fredericton, Jackson Wilson, who found out how much Blue Jay outfielder Jesse Barfield love his Tim Horton's coffee made sure he brought one to him during camp.  In fact, Jesse is holding the coffee Jackson brought to him in the photo with Sam.  Right photo, Sam Tingley, Jacob Palmer and Jackson Wilson.

Bob Kenny Addresses Baseball Camp Participants

news-bob-kenny

Long time community member Bob Kenny addressed the 2012 Royals Baseball Campers on the first day of Camp June 29, 2012. Bob taught campers the importance of team play and of celebrating health. Former Blue Jay and all-star, Tony Fernandez, was on hand along with other camp coaches to hear Bob speak and were encouraged by his remarkable approach during a time in his life where Bob is battling Lou Geriheg's Disease (ASL). The same week former Jay and World Series home run hero, Joe Carter, dropped by and was part of a group, including TD Canada Trust, Blue Jays Care Foundation, Fredericton North Rotary Club, Grant Thornton and the City of Fredericton, that announced a $25,000 grant to rebuild the Royals Field dugouts and were named after Bob Kenny for his longstanding committment to baseball as a player, manager and community supporter. Bob had all the campers in attendance stand together with all the special guests and those gathered for the event to sing "Take me out to the ball game".   It was truly a great celebration of baseball and life.
