The Bahamas Baseball Federation continues to meet its mandate  of exposing its members to baseball opportunities.
 
The first weekend of its 2008 Winter Baseball Informational, Instructional and Prospect Showcase was a resounding success with 65 Young Men (5 from BIMINI) and (2 from Grand Bahama) being exposed to high-level baseball exposure.
 
Team One Baseball, "The Leader in Player Development & College Placement in the USA"  Directors Jim  Gemler and Justin Roswell gave the enthusiastic young men and their parents a very informative question and answer session on Friday November 21st at the Wyndham.  The session was filled to capacity, as the Team One outlined in details the theme for the weekend "What must I do to Be Recruited".  The parents were very pleased with the information provided, as it pertains to preparing their sons to excel and benefit from the sport of baseball on the next level.
 
Purpose of the 3 week sessions:  With the enormous growth and development of the Youth & Junior Baseball Programs being experience throughout The Bahamas and the overwhelming desire by our young men too play baseball at the next level (High School & College), the BBF in conjunction with Pony Baseball-Nassau saw the need to bring the baseball expertise and recruiting to the Bahamas to give our young men an opportunity to showcase their talent to the various clinic educators.
