Hong Kong International Baseball Open - Dec 2017
Sydney University Baseball Club is currently investigating the feasibility of sending a representative side to participate in the Hong Kong International Baseball Open. The tournament is scheduled for 13th - 18th December 2017.
If there is sufficient interest, we will formally apply for sanction from Baseball Australia. The competition level is approximately 1st/2nd Grade standard, and includes the Hong Kong National team, Hong Kong local teams and other teams from Asia.
Ideally, we'd like to send a squad of 20 players, coaches and officials. We feel this is an excellent opportunity for all Cynics, and a great way to promote Sydney University Baseball Club.
