2011 was a busy year for STS. All Star GAmes in Taiwan, Panama’s BAseball World Cup, Field reviews and plans in Lagos de Moreno for the Pan Am games. On the homefront we were quite busy with the National MAll, ODP clubs SI Yanks, the Greenjackets etc… Now we prepare for 2012.

Gave a fun presentation at the IBAF Congress meeting in Dallas this month. We are working on a draft of the plan we hope to roll out the first of the year after we get approvals from IBAF and MLB.
Hoping everyone has a blessed Christmas. Also Glad to hear most of our troops are heading home from Iraq although there are quite a few still over in Afghanistan. Thoughts and prayers with them and their families.
It’s always great to visit a country that loves baseball. Taiwan is way up on that list. They really love the game. We are looking at a few ballparks in Taiwan for some potential games in the near future. Checked out the stadium in Xingzuan District in New Taipei City. It’s a 11000 seat ballpark with bermuda grass. It was built in 1997 and renovated in 2003 which included removing the all infield clay and installing infield grass. Yesterday we went through intercontinental Stadium in Taichung City. Another nice ballpark with seating for 19000 people and today we are going through Kaohsiung stadium. Its a 20,000+ ballpark where we hosted a game with the L.A. Dodgers in 2010. Great crowd and wonderful but older venue.
Its going to be a busy fall for the Brickman Sportsturf team and our Subs! World Cup tournaments in Panama, Pan American Games in Guadalajara and a potential MLB All Star throughout Asia will keep us rolling pretty hard from September till mid November.
