With Team Australia’s first game of the World Baseball Classic Qualifier just hours away, a call to arms has been issued from the team to the Australian Baseball community and newcomers, to come out to Blacktown and paint the town green and gold.

The Southern Thunder will line up against the Philippines on Diamond 1 at Blacktown International Sportspark at 7.30pm (local time) tonight as tournament favourites, boasting 26 of the 28 man roster having played in the Minor Leagues or higher.

“We have already proven that when we are at our best, we can match it with any given side in the world on any day” Team Australia Manager Jon Deeble said. “We know we can win, but we know we’ll have to be at our best to do it.”

Tournaments on home soil are few and far between for Team Australia, so to have the Qualifiers in our own backyard gives Aussie Fans the chance to catch the best of the best baseball talent in our country.
