CWBL hosts Aussie Hearts Aug 21-22

The CWBL is excited to join up with our sisters from down under who have come to the U.S. to visit the birth country of baseball and play a few games while they’re here!  We will match up with the Aussie Hearts in a three-game series at Simmons Field in Kenosha, August 21-22.  Game times are 10am and 12:30pm on Saturday and 2pm on Sunday.  In addition to these games, the Hearts’ youth team will on an American youth team put together by Baseball for All.

This tournament is a great opportunity for the CWBL to and the Aussies to not only play ball together, but also to hang out, get to know each other, and swap stories about our baseball experiences.  We all want to see women’s baseball grow not only at home but around the world—creating friendships across national borders is an important part of building a dynamic international women’s baseball community.

Simmons Field was the home of the AAGPBL’s Kenosha Comets, and is one of the few remaining stadiums from that league. 2010 is the third year the CWBL has played games at this historic stadium and we are pleased to share the experience with our visitors from Australia.

So, join us for some or all of the weekend.  We’d love to share this historic event with all of our fans!
