What will happen with the Baseball stadium in Athens?
It was only 2 years ago in Athens Greece that the Cubans "barely" walked away with yet another gold medal after a great game with Australia. The seats were full…. and the field was rated the best that players had seen in Europe.
I wonder what happened to the facility? I have been told it is abandoned and scarcely used. Since I have not been back to Greece since the Olympics I have talked to a couple people that have said the stadium is off limits.
Thessaloniki is trying to build a new field. They are looking for donations. Go to www.baseballgreece.com
If Baseball is going to get back in the Olympics again we need to grow the game in Europe. That’s where the IOC members live that booted the game again last week out of the 2012 Olympics.
Time to sound off about Baseball Internationally. Its going to be a great year with the WBC. I will be working the field in San Juan at Hiram Bithorn Stadium for the World Baseball Classic. More to blog about that event.
