Great Britain Baseball Releases Roster for 2013 European Championship Qualifier

Great Britain Baseball Releases Roster for 2013 European Championship Qualifier

Press Release by Great Britain Baseball

Great Britain Baseball has released its preliminary roster for the upcoming European Championship Qualifier in Zurich, Switzerland from 22-28 July. The team will include a number of familiar faces mixed with some new recruits, and will have several domestic-based players.

Team GB is expecting to field a strong, competitive squad, as it looks to return to the European A Pool at the first attempt following a surprising relegation in 2012.  Over recent years, the team has won the European Championship Qualifier in Israel in 2011 and took the silver medal from the 2007 European Championships.

SELECTION PROCESS

The final roster will be confirmed one week before the tournament, but a preliminary 20-man roster has been selected by Head Coach Sam Dempster.  Coach Dempster will be assisted by Pitching Coach and former GB player Brian Essery and former MLB player Philip Stockman, with details of the final coaching position to be confirmed shortly.

The squad has been drawn from the BBF’s National Baseball League as well as from Europe, North America and Australia.
