The BBF has been notified of an opportunity for young baseball players to gain scholarships to attend an upcoming baseball camp in February in cases where financial and/or personal family challenges might restrict their participation.


The Perfect Game Academy (PGA), founded and run by British Baseball Hall of Famer Cody Cain, is offering three full scholarships for deserving young players to attend the 2nd Annual PGA Baseball Camp from 13-15 February.
