SPY AOFTBALL UPDATE
January 18 2015

The JenSchro Clinic in Virginia
Cooped up most of the fall into winter, Spy broke out today to observe the Jennifer Schroeder (Buchan) clinic at the Rip-It Center in Sterling VA. More than 100 Girls 8-18 (mostly mid-range) practiced hard for four hours – pitching, catching and hitting — under the expert tutelage of Jennifer and Katie Schroeder (both UCLA), Amanda Scarborough (Texas A&M) and Morgan Stewart (UW). I have observed their growth into accomplished professionals since their travel ball days, and some of the travel ball players in attendance told me how much they learned. There were players from Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. On Monday, the Tour will conduct a similar clinic in Delaware.

Spy was impressed by the skill levels demonstrated by some of the 12-15 yr old players.

2020 Tokyo Olympic Games: Japan boosting efforts for inclusion of Baseball and Softball

Tokyo 2020 chief, Yoshiro Mori, says baseball/softball in 2020 would be a “big plus”.

TOKYO — As support for baseball and softball to be included in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games continues to mount across Japan, with a growing chorus from all parts of the globe, the political group consisting of 67 Diet Members campaigning for baseball and softball at the Olympic Games assembled in Tokyo for the second time in a month last Tuesday, November 18 in the Japanese Diet.

Kazuhiro Tawa, Senior Advisor of Baseball Federation of Japan, and Taeko Utsugi, Vice President of Japan Softball Association — as well as World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) executive member — made presentations to the supportive Diet members, exchanged ideas and were encouraged to expand the baseball/softball Olympic inclusion campaign.

The Diet Federation members from the LDP of Japan recognized the ongoing work by the baseball/softball family, including the screening of the promotional video on the stadium jumbotron during the recent WBSC-sanctioned “Japan Series” between the top-ranked Japanese National Baseball Team, Samurai Japan, and the MLB All-Stars at the Tokyo Dome, and University/High School Baseball Championship at Meiji Jingu Stadium.

Immediately following the Diet meeting, the 40-proposal Olympic Agenda 2020 reform programme was released from the International Olympic Committee’s headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The potential reforms being introduced by the IOC would allow host cities to propose the inclusion of one or more events for their games — a move which would clear the way for baseball and softball to be included in the 2020 Games.

IOC Vice-President John Coates, who was visiting Tokyo with his IOC Coordination Commission team, and Chairman of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Organizing Committee Yoshiro Mori, spoke to the media on how the IOC President Thomas Bach’s reform agenda could affect planning for Tokyo 2020.

“In the case of Japan, including baseball and softball would be a great idea,” Mori said at the news conference last Wednesday. “The two sports are very popular in Japan and having them on the program would be a big plus.”

The Olympic Agenda 2020 reforms will be put to a vote by the full IOC membership at a special session in Monaco on December 8-9.

The first/last bid from the new world governing body, WBSC, to include baseball and softball in the 2020 Olympic Games was at the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires, Argentina in September 2013, where wrestling was voted back onto the official Olympic Programme the day after Tokyo was announced as the host of the 2020 Olympic Games.
WORLD BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
World’s Top 12 nations revealed for first-ever ‘Premier 12’ World Baseball Championship; New No. 1 Japan heads elite line-up

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) unveiled the line-up of the world’s best-ranked nations that have qualified for the first-ever “Premier 12” — the new flagship pro baseball world championship that will feature the National Teams from baseball’s 12 highest-ranked nations and become baseball’s highest-ranked international competition, awarding US$ multi-millions in prize money.

The Top 12 nations that have secured a place in the inaugural Premier 12 in 2015 is headlined by No. 1 Japan, No. 2 USA, No. 3 Cuba, No. 4 Chinese Taipei, No. 5 Netherlands, No. 6 Dominican Republic, No. 7 Canada, No. 8 South Korea, No. 9 Puerto Rico, No. 10 Venezuela, No. 11 Italy and No. 12. Mexico.

WBSC President Riccardo Fraccari celebrated baseball’s first-ever collection of Premier 12 nations.

“WBSC congratulates the 2015 Class of Premier 12 nations and the athletes who helped lift their countries to be among the Top 12,” Fraccari said. “These nations represent baseball’s best that will unite and deliver an exciting — and unmatched competitive parity — at the inaugural Premier 12. Any one of these elite nations can come out victorious in 2015 and leave The Premier 12 as the reigning World Champion.”

The unveiling of baseball’s most powerful bloc of nations follows the end-of-the-year calculation of the Official 2014 WBSC World Baseball Rankings, as the final standings of the rankings in the year preceding The Premier 12 serve as the exclusive qualifying method into the international baseball showcase. (See Complete/Final 2014 WBSC World Baseball Rankings.)

The release of the 2014 WBSC World Baseball Rankings also marks the historic rise of the Japanese National Baseball Team, Samurai Japan, which for the first time ever is the world No. 1, surpassing 2013 leader USA.

The inaugural Premier 12 participants will represent a global spread that includes the entire western hemisphere — North-, Central- and South America, and the Caribbean — Asia, and Northern and Southern Europe. Oceania’s No. 14 Australia, which had been ranked as high as No. 10 in 2012, was just 8.96 rankings points behind No. 12 Mexico.

All WBSC’s world championship platforms — from the U-12, U-15, U-18 and U-21 Baseball World Cups to the 2013 World Baseball Classic and sanctioned/recognised international competitions have shaped the rankings and qualification into the 2015 Premier 12.

The Premier 12 logo, and 2015 tournament dates, are expected to be unveiled at an upcoming press conference.

Following the 2015 Premier 12, the world championship platform that unites the world’s 12 best nations will be rolled out every four years.

WOMEN’S SPORTS FOUNFATION GRANT TO ASA
ASA/USA Softball a recipient of the Women’s Sports Foundation’s Travel and Training Fund grant
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Amateur Softball Association (ASA) of America and USA Softball was recently announced as a recipient of the Women’s Sports Foundation’s (WSF) 2014 Travel and Training Fund grant. The Women’s Sports Foundation has announced that the USA Softball Women’s National Team (WNT) is one of twenty-three grant recipients—and more than 80 athletes—of its 2014 Travel & Training Fund fueled by partner Gatorade®. The USA Softball WNT will receive $7,500 to support its travel and training for the 2015 season.
“On behalf of ASA/USA Softball, we want to thank the Women’s Sports Foundation for their support of our great sport,” said ASA/USA Softball Executive Director Craig Cress. “To be a recipient of the Travel and Training Fund grant is a great honor and will certainly assist our Women’s National Team program in their training for the 2015 season.”
The USA Softball WNT is slated to compete in two international competitions in the 2015 season, including the General Tire World Cup of Softball X in Southern California and the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Under the leadership of Head Coach Ken Eriksen (Tampa, Fla./Head Coach at USF), the WNT most recently competed at the International Softball Federation (ISF) Women’s World Championship in Haarlem, Netherlands in August, 2014 where Team USA claimed the silver medal. Also joining Eriksen on the coaching staff for a second-consecutive season are Laura Berg (Corvallis, Ore./head coach at Oregon State), Howard Dobson (Orange, Texas/assistant coach at LSU) and Lisa Dodd (San Diego, Calif./head coach at UNLV).
“As an athlete, having the opportunity to represent your country is a surrealistic feeling,” said Women’s National Team athlete Taylor Hoagland. “It is such an honor to be a part of something that is much bigger than yourself while donning the Red, White and Blue. Thank you to the Women’s Sports Foundation for providing us this grant, which will allow our team to train and compete at the most elite level in our sport. With this gift, our team will not only be able to achieve our goal of winning games but achieve our goal of winning hearts.”
The Travel & Training Fund helps aspiring athletes and teams with significant potential to achieve even higher performance levels and rankings by providing direct financial assistance. Grants are used to offset the costs involved with coaching, specialized training, equipment, athletic attire and travel, thereby giving them the opportunity to attain their next great achievement in sport and preparing them for leadership roles now and in the future.
“Playing ice hockey in high school, college and on the USA Women’s Ice Hockey Team was a huge expense for me and my family, as is the pursuit of big dreams for so many athletes and their families,” said Angela Ruggiero, WSF President and a four-time Olympian. “There is so much untapped greatness in women’s sports today: the Women’s Sports Foundation and Gatorade are proud to fuel the dreams of more than 80 female athletes with this year’s grant.”
The Women’s Sports Foundation was the first organization to offer grants to female athletes with elite potential. Since 1984, WSF has awarded nearly 1,400 grants to individual athletes and teams, many of whom went on capture national, world and Olympic titles. Past recipients include figure skater Michelle Kwan, ski jumper Alissa Johnson, swimmer Mallory Weggemann and the US National Water Polo Team.
This year, the Women’s Sports Foundation awarded $100,000 in grants ranging from $3,000 to $10,000 to 23 applicants across 20 sports.
