Bristal All-Stars Offer Softball Boot Camp

Seniors_Bristal_080114AThe Bristal All-Stars, with a cumulative total of 1,408 years of playing the game, say they greatly enjoyed teaching the youngsters from local summer programs the fundamentals needed to succeed on the ball field.

“We love this game,” said Pete Zaccarra. “We’ve all been playing the game since we were kids and greatly enjoyed the opportunity to share our expertise and love of the game and to provide these youngsters with a sound foundation in the fundamentals of the game.”

The Bristal All-Stars play two double headers a week. They focused on teaching the youngsters the concepts of sportsmanship, team camaraderie, hustling, base running, hitting, fielding, making the cut-off throw and the lost art of flipping down their sun glasses when a ball is hit into the bright blue sky.
