Don't Blink 2020

This photo shows a Beautiful morning at Montague Beach, where a sailboat spent the night.

Five weeks ago, This Montague Beach foreshore had a lot of excitement. Together with some of minor league baseball’s top prospects and a few major league players. There were jet skis, sailboats, speed boat, and red baseballs flying out into the blue waters with hundreds of baseball fans cheering each home run.

Also, MLB TV was there, and PlayBall was there, so was former Marlins World Series Catcher Charles Johnson, along with former Rookies outfielder Dante Bichette Sr.

The Beach sits quietly. Therefore, visitors and locals alike are enjoying its beauty and warm waters.

Finally, this Beach sits in her beauty waiting for the local Regatta Sailing boat season, and foreshores of Montique Beach will come alive again.

Besides, this Reminder of whom our help comes. This car parked in the heart of the home run derby venue. Hence, the owner of this car said to me, don’t be afraid to take a photo of his vehicle whiles chatting with another man about life.

Don't Blink Sights & Sound

Shed Long, Nick Gordon, Jazz Chisholm, and Bo Bichette was sharing jokes all day long. Can you imagine the talking Photo by 360 Designs.

So the sights and sound, and the clowning around at Don’t Blink 2020 Home, Run Derby, in Paradise have come to an end. We hope to see you all next year!

Jeff Francis

Office Assistant at Wynn Bahamas Ltd
Jeffrey was born on April 29th, 1961, in Nassau, Bahamas to Rejoiner Ann Rolle and Jerome James Francis Etienne.

Married to Andrea G. Rolle-Francis, they have two daughters; Janae Latoya Francis, a graduate of Allegany College of Maryland, and Jessica Lee Francis a graduate Potomac State College West Virginia University in Kyser West Virginia.

Jeffrey was coaching the sport of baseball from 1980 at the age of 18 years old because he loved the sport as a kid. He started listening to the game over the radio out of Miami Florida in the late 60s and in the early 70s started playing the game locally in various local leagues right up to the premier senior league; a league where all of the current Bahamian minor leaguers played.

In 1982, Jeffrey had an invite to a three day tryout with the New York Yankees in Hollywood Florida, which was an awesome experience that is lasting a life time memory for him.

Jeffrey has been following the Bahamian baseball players in the minor leagues since 1999 with Angelo Burrows, but found greater interest with the signing of Antoan Richardson in 2005. He also writes a year end review on their play on his Facebook page, Baseball Bahamas, and he has a website with the same name. He has a great following and would love to expose the baseball players to a bigger worldwide audience.

He has a good relationship with all the players because he personally coached most of them.

His favorite MLB Team is the Detroit Tigers from 1969.
