Bobby Thompson Invitational this Weekend in Edinburgh!

Fri 12 Jul 2019

On Saturday, 13 July, Baseball Scotland is hosting the first annual Bobby Thompson Invitational at Bobby Thompson Field in Edinburgh.

The tournament was born last year when an AAU USA International Collegiate Team visited Baseball Scotland before their trip to Ireland. The USA side played against multiple league teams in Scotland, finishing with a game against the Scotland national team. After enjoying their tour of Scotland - and winning every contest - the USA team made plans to return this year, starting their tour in Barcelona and wrapping up in Edinburgh.

To change things up this year, Baseball Scotland invited the British Baseball League, to create a three team tournament between AAU USA, BBL All-Stars and the Baseball Scotland National Team. Following this year's Battle for Britain in Kent, a fourth team from the South West reached out, and the South West Rebels, lead by Jose Garcia, were added.

With fantastic support on social media attention already, Baseball Scotland is looking forward to a successful two day tournament  and the first of many Invitational tournaments at Bobby Thomson Field in Edinburgh.
