Behind all good sports teams is a place where players and members can kick back, relax, share a drink and some food in a friendly local environment, The Loxley ticks all those boxes and you'll find us there after most games and training. The Loxley's team couldn't be more welcoming and the selection of food and drink certainly helps the mood win ( or lose) . If you haven't stopped by, make a trip and enjoy a drink and a meal, play some pool watch one of the many screens showing all sorts of events.
For the past couple of years. the club has slowly been developing our junior baseball program. This winter we've been running bonus indoor sessions, for our budding stars to get the baseball reps in.
The progress of our future stars has been inspiring and the club is proud to offer baseball to our local community.
We're proud to have a great spirit within our whole squad and to celebrate this we introduced an off season,'non baseball' competition this past off season. We aptly named it the 'Hot Stove Series' and its proved to be a massive success, with over 35 players taking part across a range of events, including Axe Throwing!
2 randomly drawn teams have faced of in other events such a out 'Sac Fly've A Side' football, 'WHIPlash Karting' 'Pop Fly Pool' and there is still 'Strike Out' Bowling to come.
We're sure this will become a long term comp. and has certainly made friends of team mates!
The season is on its way, until then, we are just sat counting down the days to that first pitch. A loads been happening since September but nothing beats that first crack of the ball off the bat and the first run that crosses the plate.
Check our schedules and plan your visit to one of many games taking place at Forge Valley this year, it's sure to be a great year with all 3 teams in action.
**** with the current situation regarding the pandemic sweeping the world, our season will be delayed in getting started, updates will follow as things improve ****
