The “Ambassador of the Game” giveaway is part of an effort by Baseball Jobs Overseas to promote the embodiment of what an import player should be to their new club, given the fact that they have been presented with an amazing opportunity to represent the game overseas. We will be giving away a free, custom baseball or softball glove made by Llerandi Gloves, a custom Spark Bat by Hakusoh Bat, and a Baseball Jobs Overseas 3n2 jersey to the three BBJO players or coaches who best represent the “Ambassador of the Game” moniker. To receive this title, the BBJO members must possess the following characteristics:
- Embraces the role as coach or mentor to players of all ages within their club
- Exhibits leadership qualities, motivating those around them to reach common and/or personal goals
- Exemplifies the characteristics of a quality teammate and sportsman/woman
- Conducts themselves in a professional manner, on and off the field
- Is a contributing member of the club off the field
- Shows up ready to play hard every game
How did we determine this list? First off, they had to be a recent Baseball Jobs Overseas member who signed to play overseas in 2019 as a result of their membership. From there, we narrowed the possible candidates based on the criteria above using a combination of feedback we gathered over the course of the season and our own personal observation. Now that we have narrowed it to 5 candidates, we present the candidates to the public for a vote. To vote, comment on this Facebook or our Instagram post why you think they deserve to win. DM’s are also ok. Only one vote per FB or IG account will be tallied.
At noon, central European time on November 1st, 2019, voting will close the three winners will be selected. First place will make their choice of either a free custom glove, a custom Spark bat or a 3n2 Baseball Jobs Overseas jersey. The second place will then choose one of the remaining two prizes and the third-place finisher will receive what is left over.
