BALLARAT baseball duo Will Ringin and Ethan Woolley didn’t come away victorious from the weekend’s Victorian Carnival but gained great experience as Geelong Baseball Association under-18 representatives.
Ringwood claimed the Victorian Carnival as Geelong failed to win a match.
But Damian Woolley, Ethan’s father and B-grade coach at the Brewers, was extremely pleased with the pair’s efforts in what was great exposure for the rising baseballers.
The boys, who represent Mounties Baseball Club over winter and Ballarat City Brewers in summer, impressed in their trials at Geelong last month and earnt selection in the Geelong side.
Woolley said the group, while suffering six defeats, came away from the carnival with plenty of experience and a newfound knowledge of what’s expected at state level.
Ringin is a catcher and a more than capable batter while Woolley will ply his craft as a pitcher.
Playing in his junior grade Ringin is also currently representing the Mounties’ A and B grades.
Ringin boasts a quality base percentage with the bat as well as claiming the under-16 batting award last season.
While Woolley is a member of the B reserve team and delivered an impressive 11 strike outs with the ball in the Brewers’ third grade last season.
