Five squads of emerging young ball players will travel to United States over the next several weeks to represent their team – and their country – at world-renowned Little League tournaments.

 

After qualifying through our own national titles, Sydney-based Cronulla will be travelling to Easley California to contest the Senior League World Series that is scheduled for 28 July to 4 August, while almost simultaneously our national qualifier Northern Metros will be contesting the Intermediate League World Series slated for Livermore California from 29 July through to 5 August.

 

Hills – which has already been represented on the world baseball stage – heads to Taylor Michigan to lock horns with the best players in its age group at the Junior League World Series scheduled from 12 to 19 August.

 

The last of our regional qualifiers, Gold Coast Cougars, seeks to announce its presence at the prestigious Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, in a series scheduled for 16-26 August.

 

Meantime, Adelaide Seahawks have secured a berth at the Cal Ripken World Series that is scheduled for 3-11 August.

 

Australian Baseball Alumni extends its very best wishes to all squads, who we know will experience the baseball trip of a lifetime while representing their team and their country with great distinction.

 

All tournaments will be covered in depth by the Little League organisation and/or by Cal Ripken World Series (see links below).
