Roadmap ahead

Great Britain Baseball (GB Baseball) 

With the announcement (30th May) of setting up a Great Britain Baseball (GB Baseball) National Team, the British Baseball Federation will implement a roadmap over four years and strategies to make the team a success. 

A spokesperson for the British Baseball Federation (BBF) said, "Through our roadmap, we look forward to the recruitment of British players to take part in our Women's National Team. Further, we are committed to a roadmap which will create a high velocity Women's Team and bring it great success. Our roadmap and strategies are made up of thematic items e.g., timelines, objectives and goals, designed to build a team, and positive impact for women to inspire to play baseball at the highest level. We realise to start and develop a successful National Women's Team will require continuous improvement strategies. Our commitment to our GB Baseball Women's team is integration (culture, principles) into our successful GB Baseball Programme (ranked 31 in the world), while delivering velocity results. We have a number of experienced and skilled persons behind the scenes which we intend to leverage to enable the Women's Team to compete and succeed on the international stage over our four year roadmap. However, we look forward for everyones support as we move to a historic six Great Britain Baseball National Teams e.g., New Women's Team, U12 Team, U15 Team, U18 Team, U23 Team and Seniors Team." 

The new GB Baseball Women's Team roadmap is organised by the BBF, National Team Programme Official (Jason Pearce e-mail jason.pearce@britishbaseball.org) and Team Manager (Amanda Hocking e-mail amanda.hocking@britishbaseball.org) :
