The Great Britain National Team has confirmed that three members of Herts have been selected in the GB Under-16 National Team to travel for a series of games in Canada with another three Herts players staying in the UK for games with the GB U16 Team to be held around the UK this summer.
A total of six Herts players were part of the GB Under-16 National Team preliminary roster for GB Team pre-season training and games. Carlos Casal Jr, Marty Cullen Jr and Tom Everex-Armstrong will be part of the group of British players which will be representing the country in a gruelling games schedule in Eastern Canada between 12 and 22 July.
Brodie Caress, Callum Vangundy and Jose Morillo, for whom this is a first year with the GB setup, will continue their involvement with the GB Under-16 team in friendly games scheduled this summer which do not clash with the Under-17 and Under-14 British League schedule.
The progress of Herts players with the GB teams is a tremendous boost for Herts as an organisation. The Club is even more excited by the fact that there are many more talented players coming through the various age groups of the Herts youth system, from the U-11 and U-14 teams through to the U-17 age group. The opportunity is there for any young players who want to get involved in baseball to progress and wear the GB Team jersey. But you don’t have to be a GB National Team player to play baseball. Any interested players, boys and girls between 6 and 16 years of age, from complete beginners to advanced players can join the Herts baseball youth teams (click here for more details).
