The tournament will feature the 90 best teenage baseball players from 14 European countries, including Austria, Belarus, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine and Great Britain. 

The tournament will serve as a showcase of MLB's Europe-wide elite development programme. MLB teams will have baseball scouts in attendance to seek out new stars of our sport. 

Ollie Thompson is a local born player who developed in both character and skill to showcase the best of British Baseball. We are so proud of Ollie, who has progressed from his local baseball club, through our National Teams (GB Baseball) and now showcases his skills overseas in the US while attending New Mexico, Junior College.  Ollie is a great example, for other local players of what character, hard work and British determination mean to follow your dream to play our sport. We congratulate Ollie and extend him much success and praise as he showcases his talents against Europes best. We further would like to extend a pre-welcome to MLB and all of the other players and attendees to Britain for the EDT." Said a spokesperson for the British Baseball Federation.
