Herts Baseball Club received exciting news off the field as the Great Britain Under-15 National Team announced its squad for the U15 European Championship Qualifiers. The squad includes Herts infielder, Michael Johnson, who has been a member of the Herts Under-17 and Under-19 teams over the last few seasons. The games will be played in Belgrade, Serbia, from 21 to 26 July. Great Britain is in a difficult group with France, Switzerland and hosts Serbia.
This continues Herts’ fantastic record of its players being called-up to represent their country on the international scene. The progress of Herts players with the GB teams is a tremendous boost for Herts Baseball 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 U10 through to the U19 age groups. It proves that the opportunity is there for any young players who want to get involved in baseball to progress and wear the GB Team jersey.
Of course, you don’t have to be a GB National Team player to play baseball. Any interested players, boys and girls, between 6 and 18 years of age, from complete beginners to advanced players can join the Herts baseball youth teams. Get in touch if you would like to come and give baseball a try.
