This past fall/winter some of SOMBA’s fall ball participants were treated to some top notch instruction by Penticton’s own Dustin Houle. Dustin is a SOMBA alumni, former Junior National Team Canada member and is currently a catcher in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. The athletes were given pointers on blocking, throwing, receiving and hitting. Thanks to Dustin, baserunners from opposing teams will think twice about trying to steal on our catchers this upcoming season!
