Herts Baseball Club has confirmed that the 2023 Herts Futures Tournament will take place on Saturday, September 30th.
The Herts Futures Tournament (HFT) was first held in 2008 and is now a permanent fixture in the British baseball calendar. The number of teams entering the tournament has been going up. The highest number of entries which we have managed to accommodate in previous years has been 21 teams. It will be interesting to see how many teams will enter this year. If the number continues to increase the club will have to consider ways of expanding the venue further.
The event brings together youth teams of various age groups from across the country for a day of baseball at one of the best baseball venues in the UK. Grovehill Ballpark is the home of Herts Baseball Club. Over the years the venue has been selected to host high profile events such as the National Baseball Championships and Great Britain National Team events.
During the Herts Futures Tournament additional diamonds are added to cater for the different age groups.
This year’s edition is expected to cover the Under-15, Under-13, Under-11 and Under-8 age groups.
