In an effort to showcase the lifestyle of our members playing or coaching abroad, we are assembling a promo video and we want to feature our members of the International Baseball Community website, past and present. In return for helping us out, we are offering prizes to the top 3 videos that best showcase the adventure side of things that comes with taking a baseball or softball career overseas.


Top video entries

We will be revealing the winner on Monday, February 19th after a week of gathering feedback from our staff and extended international baseball and softball veteran coaches and players. We will list the participants here and we welcome any feedback on who you think should win. Either comment on the Facebook post or email us.
