Nigeria’s U-12 Baseball Team Heads to US in preparation for Championship in China



Spokesperson for the board of the Nigerian Baseball and Softball Federation (NBSF), Ikenna Agu confirmed recently that plans have been concluded to take the under-12 Baseball team on a training tour later this year in July to Washington DC in preparation for the forthcoming Baseball competition which will be held in China.
The Secretary General of the Federation also has hinted that Rosebud College would be the team’s camp while in the United States.

The Federation added that it is looking for the best in terms of performance for the team which is why they have gone for the best, adding that some other nations that will be coming for the meet in China have also settled for the United States.

According to Agu, “I strongly believe that those of them that will finally make it to Taipei can boldly beat their chest and say that it’s a deserved one.”
Explaining further the necessity of the training tour for the young lads, the Technical Adviser of the team, Gerard Hall said all necessary exposure needs to be given to the team so that countries like Cuba, Venezuela, China, Taiwan and the United States will not intimidate the National Team of Nigeria at the meet.
