It s going to be nice

Berlin Alexanderplatz, 2 more days of sleep before I head to the airport.

Earlier on Sunday, I had the youth indoor baseball tournament on my baseball to go list. I Just got there in time for the championship ceremony, which the Sluggers won for the 2nd time in a row plus I got the chance to use the radar gun and give the kids high fives for their effort;)

Big Lukas Kiner, 10 year old lefty pitcher from the Berlin Roadrunners (also participant of the Afroklauss Baseball School), threw an 84 kph fastball. Always fun when the people appreciate what you are trying to do.

I dont want to brag about the german baseball, but will try to highlight some of the nice things


EBCA announces participants for Coaches Exchange Program

Selected coaches will travel to the US in March

The European Baseball Coaches Association is proud to announce the three selected participants for its Coaches Exchange Program 2011.

The Program was put in place by coaches for coaches. The idea behind it is for developing european coaches to receive coaching insight in every aspect of the game from experienced american coaches. For this purpose European coaches will travel to the US to spend time at high quality baseball University and high school programs.

By spending time in those overseas programs, the Europeans will be able to receive insight into running practices, handling teams and game coaching situations. Participants can pick the brains of their hosts regarding mechanics, strategy and philosophy.
