When we visited the city of Brzeg we spent a couple days meeting the hard working directors of their softball program. There are 3 teams, one in each age group. There are Little Leaguers (ages 9-12), Juniors (13-14) and Seniors (14-16). This season the Little League and Senior teams won their respective regional tournaments and represented the EMEA Region of Little League at the Softball World Series in Portland Oregon. The Junior team finished third in their regional tournament. They all practice and play on "Frank Gambosh Field". Frank, PNYBF National Vice President, was responsible for raising funds for the field named in his honor. There is a loyal and dedicated group of parents and friends who support and direct this program. They are currently searching for a good used pitching machine for use in practice by all the teams.

"Boislo Baseballu" translate to "Baseball Field".
This is Frank Gambosh Field.
We were guests at a dinner party thrown in our honor. The dinner was at the beautiful home of Ms. Jadzia Furman who, while director of her secondary school, established and promoted the baseball program.
"Ms. Baseball" is now charged with finding a good used pitching machine for use by all the teams. Others at the table are coach Litwin and parents of players.
