Gold Coast Baseball
In January 2017, Thursday the 5th I will be going to Australia for baseball.
I was chosen for an U12 baseball team from Auckland and Wellington. To get in the team you had to trial, the coaches looked at your defense, pitching, batting, sprinting and stamina. We will play against the Australian teams and play 1-2 games a day. We have intense training every Saturday or Sunday, and we have to practice at home as well. My position for baseball will be outfielder, this is a very important position as lots of balls are hit into the outfield. Many famous MLB baseball players are also outfielders. I feel very proud to be playing for New Zealand. Even though this isn't officially a NZ national team, it is still a team from New Zealand.
