24 hours before Saturday’s eagerly-awaited Under-17 and Under-14 postseason playoffs the British Baseball Federation has announced the postseason rosters of the 11 participating teams.
Herts are going into the Under-17 playoffs with a roster which has a significantly lower average age than the other U17 teams. On the basis of this and their regular season record, the Herts U17 All Stars go into the games tomorrow as the outsiders. The Under-14 Herts team is ranked third in the seeding.
From last year’s Under-14 National Championship-winning squad there are five players who are still within the Under-14 age group, while six others have moved up into the Under-17 age group.

We have also received reports that Herts U17 Manager, Lee Manning, has been very thorough in his preparations going as far as actually visiting the venue of the Under-17 Playoffs. He sent in photos showing what the venue looks like 24 hours before the games commence.
