John Fitzgerald over at BaseballUnited.net is at it again. In the audio below he sits down to talk with Syed Khawar Shah who is the Secretary General of the Pakistan Baseball Federation and also the Executive Director of the West Asia Baseball Federation.
John and Syed talk about baseball in Pakistan who is set to host the West Asia Baseball Cup opening up today. Syed mentions how many players play the sport in Pakistan and it might surprise you.
The last part of the audio, John talks once again to Toma Irokawa, the manager of the Iran National Team. He will be taking his club to Pakistan to compete in the West Asia Baseball Cup.
It is a short but interesting look inside baseball in countries we normally do not talk about. So give it a listen.
