The Montagu Beach Foreshore.

Once again, the Montagu Beach Seashore will come alive as all roads will lead to those beautiful blue waters. Moreover, to the delight of the local baseball fans who will be very close to the action. 

Besides, Montagu Beach has always been a venue for Bahamians to gather for fun events and Don’t Blink fans will enjoy this also. I can feel the excitement in the air. 

Who are the Favorites:

Brinson 2020 Champion, Melendez 2021 Champion, Isaacs Jr, Fox Jr, & Chisholm Jr.

Even though there are no favorites except for some fans’ personal choices. For the most part, we all enjoy the action of the baseballs flying out into the Ocean. However, family members always have their favorite. Maybe this is the year for Nick Gordon who has been promising me that he has got this.

Look at what Baseball Got For Christmas:

Don't Blink 2022 Showtime

The New Andre Rodgers Baseball Stadium.

There is an old saying; that a promise is a comfort to a fool. However, after a 2003 promise, we finally have a beautiful baseball stadium. Hence, sitting in the new Stadium during its opening, I was in awe of its beauty, plus the Stadium is not 100% complete, so I had to close my eyes and imagine the finished product. 

Will The Crown Finally Stay At Home:

Don’t Blink 2022 Showtime

Well, hopefully, this is the year. Come on out to cheer our guys on, See you all on December 17th, 12 noon at the Montagu Beach Seashore. 

Don’t Blink 2022, It’s Showtime


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.
