Preview of the NBNM Rebels 8u

By Josh Choi, 02/09/19, 2:00PM EST


The NBNM Rebels 8u ballclub has shown they have the capability to play at a high level eventually, as they play actively in various tournaments. Some of their accomplishments include clinching a free entry to the Hershey Park tournament this coming July and winning the recent Hot Stove tournament a few months back.

During this winter offseason, the North Bellmore - North Merrick based team has seen to be diligently training at a facility — Batting 1000 — twice a week. According to their respective coaches, the primary focus of this team is to work on defense; they have stated that their pitching and hitting is solid, but their fielding has been consistent with struggling most of the time.

Certainly, due to their indubitable young ages, they do not attend high schools, nor do they get scouted by college scouts. In the meantime, they look to fulfill their development, as these younglings show substantial potential for the game of baseball.
