New Zealand National Baseball Tournament

Ricky and AJ Bassano’s four day U13 National Baseball Tournament concluded on Sunday.  The event saw thirteen teams from all over New Zealand assemble in Rosedale – they did not disappoint with some fiercely fought baseball being played.

Congratulations to AJ, whose Auckland Central team placed 10th overall.  Ricky’s Howick-Pakuranga Hawks (H-P Hawks) impressed, by progressing through to the playoff for 3rd/4th against the Nelson Heat, which was televised on Sky Sport. This was very exciting for the players and for the sport of baseball here in New Zealand.  We congratulate Ricky and the H-P Hawks for ultimately placing 4th in the U13 National Baseball Tournament.
