This Thursday, Herts Baseball Club is set to make British baseball history with its first internet radio broadcast.


As the live leadup to its annual postseason Kyle Hunlock Series, the Herts media team will be juggling music, commentary, on-air interviews and live draft results via its streaming internet broadcast. To listen-in is free of charge, and Herts hopes hundreds of UK, US, European and Asian baseball enthusiasts will make time for this historic event. No doubt…the drafted players – members of the HBC franchise – will expect their family and friends to tune in to hear the latest on the Hunlock Series rosters.


The Kyle Hunlock Series is held in honour of a fallen friend of the Herts community – Kyle Hunlock. This young man was taken from us far too soon in a work-related accident in the States. Kyle was a much loved member of Herts Baseball, and will be greatly missed by his fellow teammates and the Herts community. This annual event is a way of offering remembrance to Kyle's strength of heart and character, while celebrating our fellow teammates… the Herts family.


Part of the fun of the 2008 Hunlock Series is our live, online draft. Moreover, rostered players can be traded and free agents can be picked up on waivers. Much can happen during and after the draft – stay involved with the live feed to catch all the action.


HBC/Secure Members can follow the draft picks online at http://www.hertsbaseball.com/secure/draft.php.
