THREE brothers from the Belmont area have been rewarded for their talent and passion for baseball by being selected in important squads.

Cloverdale brothers Beau (15) and Kyle Cornfield (14) have been selected to represent WA in the Australian Senior League Championship in Lismore during May.

Younger brother Harley (11) will compete in the Little League State Championship, which will take place at the Wanneroo Baseball Club during the Easter long weekend.

All three brothers play for the Kalamunda Rangers.

Kyle said there were two charter teams representing WA, made up of players from different suburbs, with the brothers playing on the Western Meteors team.

“The winner of the championships will then compete in the Little League World Series in America, which is really cool,” he said.

“The national championship is very competitive, we’ve been training with our team on Thursdays and Sundays to prepare.

“I’m a pitcher and Beau is a catcher so we that experience of playing together so we know what each of us will do.

“There are 16 players in the squad so we will have to fight for our place on the diamond.”

The brothers’ father Darren Cornfield said the family had been applying for grants and fundraising for the trip.
