(4)Major League Baseball (MLB) - Africa Camp, December 2014 – Bothasig Baseball Club Grounds
It is with great pride and joy that I announce that the Bothasig Baseball Club has been identified, selected and short-listed to host the Annual MLB Africa Camp for elite Players from Africa and South Africa in December 2014.
The event is a closed event and fully administered by MLB USA. The training camp is made up of 40 selected and invited elite Baseballers (Africa & South Africa); 20 Coaches and 10 MLB staff from the USA.
A MLB USA delegate has arrived in South Africa and will be doing a site and facility inspection at our grounds tomorrow, together with Mr Tommie Norman and myself.
This will truly be a huge accolade for our club should we be successful in my proposal that was submitted in February 2014.
