Did you know Bournemouth had a highly competitive Baseball team? Have you heard of the Bournemouth Bears? We must admit, we didn’t know much about them ourselves! That was until we met with the team’s creator and manager, José, last week! Check out the video on C&B’s Facebook and Instagram!

Bournemouth Bears are in the AA League, competing against other UK cities throughout the season. Based over in Ferndown, they invite members of the public to get involved in both supporting the matches, and having a swing of the bat themselves!

José Lopez, Bournemouth Bears Baseball, comments: ‘Baseball is a great sport to watch and play. We invite you to get involved! Watching our matches is totally free – just bring a chair, take a seat, and join in the fun! Thanks to Chicken & Blues for jumping on board to support the team, and to help us spread the word to locals about our baseball project!”

Joshua Simons, C&B, comments: ‘We’re delighted to have met José and the Bears team this past few weeks. They are extremely passionate about the sport, and getting people involved in both supporting them, and playing themselves. Bournemouth Bears and Chicken & Blues is a great partnership, and we have committed to getting the word out there about all the great work José is doing within the sport. We’re going to take a few trips to the upcoming games and look forward to seeing the guys in action!”.
