BBF Press Release: Liam Carroll Resigns

The following is a press release from the British Baseball Federation. We will have more imminently as the situation develops. 

Mr Liam Carroll, Great Britain Baseball (GB Baseball) Seniors National Team Manager(*), who has been involved in the programme from 2004 has decided the time is right to move on to new challenges. Mr Carroll leaves the programme in great shape to continue to develop.

Representing Great Britain has been the greatest honour. From the first time I was selected to play in 1996 all the way to managing the 2019 European Championship squad and preparing for the what-if 2021 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers, I have given the programme my very best. I am incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved and how we’ve grown, especially while having had the privilege to be the caretaker of the Senior age group over the last few years.

Most importantly, I am humbled to have had the best seat in the house to witness the incredible efforts made by so many players, coaches and support staff to Inspire, Develop and Perform for Queen and Country.

Great Britain Baseball will always be inside of me, and although I’m ready to explore some exciting opportunities outside of the programme, I am looking forward to supporting the continued growth of the programme in the future,” said Mr Liam Carroll.

Mr Jason Pearce, National Teams Official for the British Baseball Federation, said: “We are so thankful for Liam’s many contributions throughout the years, we know his future is bright”. He went on to say, “On behalf of Great Britain Baseball and the British Baseball Federation, we wish Liam all the success in his future endeavours.”
