The Pakistan Federation Baseball (PFB) has named a 19-member national squad for the 27th Asian Baseball Championship to be held in Taiwan from Sept 16 to 20.
The squad was announced during a training camp, which is being organised by a Japanese coach Tomo Irokawa at the Punjab Stadium. The Asian Baseball Championship is the toughest continental event featuring all top six ranked countries of the region — Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, China, Indonesia and Pakistan.
While acknowledging that it was the most demanding continental event, PFB executive director Fakhar Shah said Pakistan were well prepared under Irokawa’s coaching.
He said Pakistan had attained sixth rank in Asia, terming it a big achievement within the limited resources the PFB had.
Pakistan are in a strong position to beat China, one of the strong opponents, to improve the ranking to fifth, the official added.
