Baseball Australia finalist in export awards

Baseball Australia has been announced by the Export Council of Australia as a finalist for the 2014 category of NSW Innovation in Export awards.

Announcing the finalists, the Export Council of Australia said that.

Baseball Australia and the Major League Baseball Australian Academy have been recognised for “the unique innovative success in providing export opportunities for homegrown baseball talent to play at the highest levels abroad.”

These opportunities have provided more than 150 young Australian ball players professional contracts with international clubs, which equates to over $20.6 million in signing bonus alone.

Baseball Australia chief executive, Brett Pickett, says.

“Baseball is a global sport and we work very hard to ensure that our pathways and international partnerships provide our athletes the best opportunity for success in Australia and around the world.”

The award will be announced in Sydney in late October
