Singh optimistic Henry could help GBL become eligible for 2020 Olympic Games
President of the Guyana Baseball League (GBL) Robin Singh is optimistic that newly elected Vice-President Inga Henry will help to make discussions at the recently concluded World Baseball Softball Congress (WBSC) Hammamet, Tunisia Africa, a reality ahead of the 2020 Olympics.
Singh told Stabroek Sport yesterday that proposals surrounding Guyana’s inclusion as a member of the softball aspect of Major League Baseball were made while the members were in Africa. Guyana is a member of the Major League Baseball (MLB) federation but is not a part of the softball arena. The WBSC mandate means that Guyana must be a member of the softball format in order to make themselves available for 2020 Olympics in Japan.
As such, Henry’s appointment came at a good time according to Singh who explained that her portfolio in both baseball and softball is very credible after her years of mastering the sport in Cuba, stating that her vice-presidency will enable Guyana to quickly form a softball division.
