One of the great weeks on the baseball calendar is Major League Baseball’s All-Star Week. Herts Baseball Club also tries to recreate this great tradition here in the United Kingdom by running events alongside those which take place on the other side of the Atlantic.
Herts Baseball Club has just announced the events schedule for All-Star Week.

Members of the Herts AAA, AA and A adult teams will head South for this year’s International London Tournament held in Croydon over two days. Most hotel rooms in that part of London have already been booked as Herts Baseball Club members intend to make an all-out invasion of Croydon. For the first time in its history, the club has entered two teams in what is arguably the biggest adult baseball event in this country. The tournament game schedule will be confirmed a few days before the event. In the evening, following the first day of games, the Tournament will stage the annual Home Run Derby.
