Another bat-and-ball international in Cardiff

Wales is a proud sporting nation and the superb job Cardiff made of hosting the first test of the 2009 Ashes Series last week was yet another example of this.  However, the England-Australia encounter isn’t the only international bat-and-ball game to take place in the city this month. 

A ‘B’ British/Welsh Baseball International doesn’t quite have the wide media appeal of an Ashes test, but anyone in the vicinity of Trelai Park in Cardiff on Saturday 25 July shouldn’t miss the chance to watch a sporting battle between England and Wales, played out in this entertaining variation of baseball.  The ‘A’ International is set to take place in Liverpool this Saturday.

Further details can be found on the WelshBaseball.co.uk website, including a link to a feature about leading Welsh baseball ‘bowler’ Matthew Hopkins.

    Thanks for highlighting this, Matt. Visitors will find Trelai Park in the Ely area of Cardiff, and the game starts at 2pm.
    Hoping for good weather – and a finish as exciting as that Ashes Test!

    Looks like the English B side will have to try and even things up on Saturday in Cardiff.
