The following is a Press Release by the British Baseball Federation. It has been edited for style.
The British Baseball Federation (BBF) announces it has secured baseball equipment and digital baseball training licences for its Women’s Baseball League.
Amanda Hocking, the British Baseball Federation Women’s Baseball League representative said: “I am delighted to announce that the British Baseball Federation has secured through a private donation:
1. Baseball equipment, for the setup and preparation for women’s baseball in the UK. This great investment includes catcher’s gear, helmets, baseball bats, and elbow guards. The mentioned will help tremendously in the development of the players and the sport across the UK.
2. I am also proud to announce that the BBF will also provide one licence to Elite Baseball Training [link], for each women’s team registered with Women’s Baseball League. This is a fantastic opportunity that will help fast track player development for the upcoming league by providing professional training at the highest standards. Elite Baseball Training offers hundreds of instructional videos from hitting, pitching, and fielding. I am confident that this will benefit the players greatly and lead us in a stronger direction.”
To help celebrate Women in Baseball Week further, we are celebrating alongside Women’s Baseball UK, who will be releasing their third annual series of virtual baseball cards as well as highlighting the history of UK women’s baseball dating back from 1900.
