BaseballGB’s preview to the 2009 British Baseball Season

by Matt Smith

The 2009 British baseball season gets underway tomorrow.  Forty-five teams from across the country will begin their league campaigns all hoping to be a part of the National Baseball Championships at the end of August and the beginning of September.

will be providing plenty of coverage of the British season this year and we’ve already started as we mean to go on.  In his debut Roundshaw Hop column, Joe wrote about the new ‘double elimination’ format that will be used in the National Baseball Championships, while Russ has been quick off the mark in publishing some handy pdfs of the British baseball league fixtures.  My contribution is an article previewing the season, highlighting each of the leagues and explaining the postseason structure. 

A Preview to the 2009 British Baseball Season – pdf.

Good luck to everyone involved tomorrow, from the players, coaches, umpires, official scorers and everyone else who plays a part in staging the games.  Further details on the league tables and fixtures can be found on the official British Baseball Federation website and if you live near one of the venues, why not go and support your local team and enjoy some live baseball.
