FirstCaribbean International Bank has once again helped the community’s youth through sponsoring a team in the Cayman Islands Little League.
The league which has 38 teams and divisions that vary from T-Ball to girl’s Fast Ball is entirely free to the public.
Catherine Ebanks, Small Business Officer at FirstCaribbean said ‘Participating in Little League empowers our youth and we feel very strongly that this deserves our support each year.
The FirstCaribbean team is a T-ball team made up of extremely talented five and six year olds.
Head Coach of the team Paul Reynolds said ‘at this level we only teach the players about the fundamentals of the game and that it isn’t whether you win or lose it’s about having fun,’ adding ‘starting at this level teaches them how to work together as a team, learn new skills and that you have to work hard to succeed.’
Mr. Reynolds also said ‘in the six weeks that we have been playing, the team has shown significant improvement, we even had four home runs in one inning which I believe is a record this season.’ He added ‘every season we have to give a most improved player award and so many of them have improved I am going to have a hard time picking one.’
Stuart Knox, President of the Cayman Islands Little League said ‘the league is run entirely on the generosity of our corporate supporters and without them we would not be able to carry on its good work for Cayman’s young people’.
