Met him in Montreal with his kid and brother and they are really nice people.

More About Me:
Baseball player in my last year (it will hurt, but the traveling in the adult league is silly..) and baseball coach to the Rudheath Majestics, a team I founded in order to support pupils during the Primary/Secondary transition. It's made a big difference but our equipment is crap (no joke) because we can't afford to buy any! So any donations will be greatly appreciated!!

Sponsors and ways to support us!

Coach Stat provided us with the software and support to make our game days better organised as well as making sure that we have on hand all the statistics and contact details we need in order to efficiently and safely run our team!

Custom Merchandise

Majestic Athletic, our shirt sponsors!
Love them! They were there from the very start!

Celynnen Photography, supporting us for the long run!

Riverside Organic, an organic farm in Cheshire, drove our boys to a tournament in France and provided fencing for our field!

The Rudheath Majestics come back from France!

Posted on June 14, 2009 at 2:10pm 3 Comments

May 2009 was a very special month for the Rudheath Majestics. Not only was it the month of their debut as an official BBF Bronco Baseball team, it was also the first time they went to France to play in the La Guerche-de-Bretagne’s Hawks baseball tournament.

Getting there was fairly straightforward. Taking the ferry from Porthsmouth to the beautiful seaside town of St-Malo, it took… Continue

Rudheath pupils will have a chance to work with Top USA Coach. On March the 2nd and 9th, Nancy Evans, a softball player and coach will support our training, specially with pitchers and catchers and will be an inspiration and model for all, achieving both in sports and in education. She played on the 1994 and 1997 NCAA Champion Wildcat teams and redshirted on the 1996 NCAA title squad with an injury. She earned first-team Academic All-America honors her senior year, Women's College… Continue

This weekend, the Rudheath Majestics were playing at the Frank Caunce Memorial Tournament in Cartmel, Cumbria.

The only team representing the North West Development League, the Majestics started off strong in their first game of the tournament against local rivals Halton Polecats. With Charles Duffy pitching, the Polecats were kept scoreless with 2 strike-outs and a good tag-out by Paul Moss at 2nd base. With a good start under their belt, Majestics came to bat but were unable to… Continue

A Majestic Victory for Rudheath!

Posted on June 9, 2007 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

The Rudheath Majestics stole victory against the Runcorn Jets on

Saturday during their second game of the season! Majestics took an

early lead of 5 in the first inning with good hits from Andrew

Munnerley, Lewis Birchall, Ben Birchall and Scott Morris.

In the second inning Josh Phillips made sure he got on the bases and

was the only runner to score for Rudheath. Good pitching performances

by Charlie and Lewis meant that the Majestics maintained a… Continue

I got the picture but the top of the logo is cut off. Any better versions?

Would you send me a clear jpeg or eps of your logo. I am working on some sample bats for your program and I want to try and mock up a mini-bat for you as well.

That's good. Hopefully, the U.K./England will have a women's national team someday.

Good luck with the growth of baseball in the U.K. Are there many youth teams yet, or is it something that's just starting to happen? Do you allow girls to play in the league?

I can understand the throat protector, although I'm not sure how much it really protects. As far as the numbers on shirts/jerseys, that's standard here as far as organized teams and leagues go. I can understand if teams are not as organized or aren't in a league and are playing for fun, but I've never seen organized leagues allow shirts/jerseys with no numbers. Here, numbers are pretty inexpensive to add... if you get the iron-on style.

That's strange. I think the traditional catcher's helmets and masks are cumbersome and can be unsafe, especially for kids. I don't like those at all.

You're welcome.

For a little help with your question about catcher's masks, the measurements you mentioned have to do with the size of the helmet in inches. The sizes of the helmets are inline with batting helmet sizes and fitted hat sizes here in the U.S.

On the Rawlings web site, it says that their 7 1/8-7 3/4 catcher's mask is an adult mask (it's adjustable to fit that size range). So, the 6 1/4-7 1/2 size you mentioned would be for kids. There probably is a size difference for younger kids compared to teenage kids.

My head is smaller, so I usually fit into teenage kids' sizes in a lot of gear. I wear a 7 1/4" batting helmet. I'm not sure what size my catcher's mask is, but I can check it later today and will let you know.

If you haven't already bought a catcher's mask, I'd get one that's adjustable, so that it will fit several heads. I've used the Rawlings hockey style mask before, and now I used the Easton hockey style one. I really like both.
