Singh expressed thanks to the GCC for the use of its facility and to the coaches and children who participated in all of the camps, he said “Baseball is a relatively inexpensive sport to play and with the invaluable work of our US based Vice-president Mark Gafur in securing equipment donations, more children are being afforded the opportunity to play as our participation numbers grow so does our partnership with our sponsors, a pleasing momentum has been achieved,” he said.

“Baseball will now take a break for 11 weeks as our players turn their attention to CXC and end of term exams, camps and tournaments are planned for the long school break in July and August,” ended Singh.

The tournament was sponsored by E-Networks Inc., Sterling Products Limited, Fly Jamaica Airways and Nobel House Sea Foods.
