Bromsgrove Cricket Club
Club and Professional cricketers around the world are responding with a visual tribute for Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes who tragically lost his life this week after suffering a severe head injury whilst batting.
Why not join in the tribute yourselves - #putoutyourbats started on Wednesday evening in Australia and is quickly travelling to all parts of the world.
Having played at New Road for Worcestershire, we know a great many of our friends and ex-players of the Club are grieving at the moment not to mention Phil's family.
Share a thought for them and don't forget fast bowler Sean Abbott who is reported to be holding up well.
#putoutyourbats #408 #63notout
The tribute is a simple yet powerful message that the cricketing world are united in support for all those affected. Please put out your bats this weekend.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
