An amazing group of volunteers led by Troy Feaste is bringing Youth Baseball and Softball back to Abaco. The fledgeling program was well underway until Hurricane Dorian struck in 2019 and brought extreme devastation to Great Abaco Island. However, the spirits of the coaches and parents are not dampened, and as the community begins its slow recovery, they have begun working to clean up the fields and getting the kids together for practices. There are already over 100 children participating in spite of the fact that they have little equipment and no faciliites. Practices will continue every Saturday, with hopes of starting the season in June of 2021.
