International Baseball Tours
JapanBallTravel hosts international baseball tours for fans and is run by Shane Barclay, a friend of BBJO and one of the best baseball people out there. Shane worked for MLB’s Office of the Commissioner with the role of helping to develop ballplayers abroad and working on MLB-operated events such as the World Baseball Classic, All-Star Futures Game, and the Arizona Fall League.
Eventually Shane parlayed the coolest parts of his MLB job —traveling and watching baseball— into working with Bob Bavasi of Bavasi Sports Partners on his long-running JapanBall tours. While doing so, he earned certification as a Japan Travel Specialist from the Japanese Government’s National Tourism Organization and was quickly convinced to make baseball travel his professional focus, eventually taking over ownership of JapanBallTravel.
