A record-breaking 17 teams will be in action at the 2014 Herts Futures Tournament which will take place at Grovehill Ballpark tomorrow.

This breaks the previous record of 15 team entries as – in addition to the U17, U14 and U12 divisions – an U10 division has been added as clubs expand their programmes to cover much younger age groups than they had previously.

The opening ceremony will take place at 10.30am; the first games begin at 11am and continue into the early evening.

“Herts Baseball Club welcomes new players at any time of the year” said club president Aspi Dimitrov. “Any children aged between 6 and 16 who are interested in giving baseball a try should contact the club. It is not too late to take part in this event.”

Traditional baseball snacks will be on offer including hot dogs, chilli dogs, big league chew, Krispy Kreme Donuts and more.

Imported baseball merchandise will also be on sale at the Herts Baseball shop, and players and fans will have a chance to buy framed photos from the games instantly at the venue.
