#IN preparation for the fourth Caribbean Baseball Cup, scheduled for December 4-11 at the newly constructed Andre Rodgers Baseball Stadium, members of the Bahamas Baseball Federation’s national team are in Grand Bahama for a training camp.

#The camp, conducted by the coaching staff led by Geron Sands and Albert Cartwright, is featuring a number of collegiate and professional baseball players who are all in line to make the team to represent the Bahamas.

#The Bahamas will be matched against visiting teams from the US Virgin Islands, Haiti, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Curacao. The winning team, if it’s not defending champion Curacao, will qualify for the Central American and Caribbean Games, scheduled for 2023.

#This is the first time that a major qualifying tournament is being staged in the Bahamas.

#It’s being held under the auspices of COCABE and the BBA, headed by Sam Rodgers. The Local Organising Committee is headed by BBA’s secretary general Theodore ‘Teddy’ Sweeting.

#The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture and the Ministry of Works are working feverishly to have the stadium ready for the tournament.

#Tickets are priced at $45 for VIP, $20 for general admission and $15 for children 12-and-under.
