In August 2000, the World junior AAA baseball championships will be held in Edmonton Canada. http://www.edmontonbaseball.com/
Australia is one of the 12-nations participating.
One player from South Australia has been selected to the Australian AAA National squad to tour Canada and play in the World Series. The rest of the 20-member squad are from the other states.
The South Australian player, Leigh Neuage, 16-years-old,
year-12 Wirreanda High School has been selected to six-National baseball teams
since 1997, which is an Australian record for his age. He has played in
Under-16 World Series in the States in 1998 and toured South Africa in 1999, as
well as participated in many other National tournaments. He has been selected to his position
Ùr) on two national All-Star squads (1999, 2000). He has been on seven South Australian State squads. As well Leigh has received many awards including as a top-ten-finalist in the Messenger Sports Award in 1998. Leigh has been a full scholarship holder at the South Australian Institute of Sports for the past four years. (He was the youngest to ever get a full baseball scholarship).
McDonalds is a major sponsor of the AAA World Series (see enclosed pages). As Leigh Neuage is the only South Australian person on the National squad I am inquiring if McDonalds in South Australia would sponsor Leigh. If so I will say McDonalds is a sponsor of Leigh on our website for these tours.
Also, Leigh is having a fundraising dinner on Saturday 24, June at the Southern Districts Baseball Club at 7 PM and Leigh would acknowledge sponsors then.
I realise this is short notice as he leaves July first but
we have just received conformation of these tour
Ùs. Besides being selected to the AAA National squad he has been selected to the Schoolboy National squad which will play tournaments in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, July 1 -13. After these tournaments Leigh will join the AAA squad in Toronto for a series of tournaments across Canada prior to the World Series in Edmonton.
As can be expected these costs are difficult for Leigh and I to meet and any sponsorship is very helpful.
