Essex Arrows Baseball Club launches recruitment drive
|Author: David Shaer||Published: 10th August 2010 11:19|
Essex Arrows Baseball Club has been affiliated to the British Baseball Federation for the past 27 years. We consist of the Essex Arrows (National Baseball League), Essex Archers (AA Division) and the Waltham Abbey Little Leaguers (The WALL).
We currently boast one of the best fields in the country, with two solid brick dugouts, a 150 seat spectator facility, two 72-foot long batting cages and a 20-foot storage container beside the field at Town Mead Leisure Park, Brooker Road, Waltham Abbey, EN9 1JH.
Plans are to make the field even better over the coming years!
Since 1984, the Essex Arrows Baseball Club has attracted players from the UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Hungary, Portugal, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, Japan and South Korea to name but a few, and we have all shared a lot of good times on and off the field, helping to write the rich history of the club and continue the club cosmopolitan tradition.
Having come off of a 25-0 season in the AAA Division in 2009, the Arrows moved up to the National Baseball League. But we lost a lot of players in the off-season and it has been a struggle to field a consistent team in the NBL. Although the Arrows continue to improve, new players are required to add to the existing squad for the 2011 season if we are to move towards a team that can challenge for the NBL title.
It is certainly our ambition to be in that position within the next two seasons, so we are looking now to recruit players to be ready for pre-season training in January.
