SA U15 Western Cape contingent

Starting with the Western Cape contingent in Cape Town last week we saw South African Baseball president Marc Moreau attend a capping ceremony together with multiple officials and parents to bestow the colours on the athletes from the region. Said, President Marc Moreau, “We are thrilled for our players and we note the importance of representing South Africa, we are very proud of the young men who have worked so hard to get here and we wish them all the very best of luck as they wear the Green and Gold .”

After months of preparation, the selected players, parents and several officials arrived with great enthusiasm to see the players and management receive their official South African colours, prior to departure to Johannesburg the following morning where they would then meet up with the remainder of the team.

This Cape Town event was then followed by a joint capping ceremony held in Johannesburg this past weekend which saw South African Baseball Vice President Mr Paddy van Niekerk presiding. Said, Patrick van Niekerk “ We congratulate all the players and offer a special word of thanks to the management who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to get the team ready. “

The event was made even more special with the attendance of former South African Baseball Olympians Nic Dempsey, Ian Holness and Jason Cook who passed on some words of wisdom and wished the team the best for the World Cup.

The U15 World Baseball world cup starts in Hermosillo, Mexico on 26 August 2022.
