Rapid rise with tee for Tyson

Rapid rise with tee for Tyson

Tyson is part of the Wanneroo Joondalup Tee-Ball Club under-11s and state teams and last year received the award for most valuable player in the under-10 WJTBC state team.

He also plays little league and machine pitch baseball for the Wanneroo Giants and is part of the Northern Charter development squad, which will compete in a weekend-long carnival in April.

The Butler resident has been nominated as a HBF Junior Sports Hero for his commitment as well as achievements, with Tyson either playing or training six days a week.

‘I like having fun with my friends, taking good hits and catching,’ Tyson said.

‘I want to one day play for the Perth Heat or the New York Yankees.’

He also hopes to be a part of Darling Range Sports College’s specialist baseball program when he starts high school.

Tyson’s father John said his son put everything into his game and trained hard and was ‘an inspiration to all younger players’.
