A British Baseball Federation (BBF), spokesperson said,  "Win or lose we are proud how the team played and they applied their best they had on the day. However, tomorrow is another day and as the team prepares, so do we, in support of them from afar. We don't know what the two next days of competition brings, or where the story ends. But we know where the story starts. That is, it is up to the team to go all out in the next two days of competition. We believe in this coaching staff and players. It will be the effort and determination the team shows throughout the entire tournament, not just one or three days. GO GB BASEBALL!"
