Baseball New Zealand has hit international baseball with a bang and one main reason is their commitment to the development of coaches at the grassroots level as well as their national teams. To further their development and
goals for young players they have started a professional team in the ABL, Australian Baseball League. They make sure they help coaches attend the program in any way they are able to assist. It is amazing what they have done with baseball in this country and we at ISG are honored to be their partner in coaches development.” Peter Caliendo, VP of the International Sports Group
