Three generations go in batting for FNC Baseball
MOST fathers relish the thought of playing alongside one of their sons in sport.
However, the chance to suit up with both sons and also your grandson, is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
This occurred for the first time in Far North Coast Baseball at the weekend when father Bob McClelland, sons Scott and Micka, and now grandson Seth took to the field for Workers in the major league competition.
All are accomplished baseballers and have represented at state level.
Bob at present is the oldest player in the FNC competition, being 63 years of age.
His other grandson, Cain, is waiting in the wings, and at 12 years of age he is hoping Bob can keep going for a few years to also have the opportunity to play in the top grade with his grandfather and father.
Not to be left out of the action, Cain took the role of warm-up catcher for the team.
The four players made up the infield with Bob at first base, Scott on second, Micka at third base and Seth filled the shortstop position.
On the sidelines, watching, was a very proud grandmother Heather along with mother Melissa who also happens to be the Workers club scorer.
To top the day off, Bob's brother David McClelland took on job of umpire-in-chief for the game.
A real family affair, to say the least.
