In the 2018 National Junior Baseball Open (Changsha Station) held on November 24th, the baseball team of Changsha WES Academy has won the championship of Group Coach Pitch for Schools by winning all four of their games. Let’s give them our warmest congratulations!
Coach丨Mr. Zheng Zhihua (Happy Start Baseball)
Players丨Grace Yang, Lee Zhang, Eason Yi, Nicole Li, Lily Dai, Winnie Wang, Luby Yin, Kitty Liao
Under the pressure of competing against the defending champion, our first inning was unfavorable with a score of 0:6. We thought the children would be depressed but they managed to adjust their mindset and got back into the match with full enthusiasm and confidence. In the second inning, they defeated our opponent by 6:0. From then on, they played better and better and won the first game.
In the following games, there were faults and unfavorable situations, but the children were able to turn things around. They encouraged each other on the court; they worked together when they lost points; they listened to the coach to make adjustment…
These children, who seem too relaxed during their regular training, devoted themselves to the match and spared no pains to win it. Perhaps that is the mystery of “Learning through Play” – when playing, they are motivated to seek knowledge, to communicate with others, to learn and to explore. In turn, the smooth communication helps to develop sports skills and cultivate team spirit.
Well done, our young baseball players!
