Welcome Message from the Organizing Committee
On behalf of the Hong Kong Baseball Association (HKBA), I am delighted to announce that the TOTO WBSC Hong Kong International Baseball Open (HKIBO) 2014 has been scheduled in both Sai Tso Wan Baseball Field and Lion Rock Baseball Field between 19th and 22nd December this year. I am also pleased to have TOTO as our title sponsor this year.
Subvented by the Arts and Sport Development Fund (ASDF) of the Home Affairs Bureau and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of Hong Kong SAR, it is the third year for HKBA to host this tournament and there will be a total of 6 teams from overseas, including teams from Korea, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, with two local teams from Hong Kong competing for the championship title this year.
I wish to take this opportunity of extending our sincere welcome to all the players, coaches, managers, supporters from overseas and wish you all enjoy every moment in here and develop strong bonding and friendship amongst all of us in and beyond the Tournament. My heartfelt thanks should also be extended to our umpires, scorers, local baseball supporters and volunteers for all the tournament and logistics support they will be providing during the Tournament period.
With all of your support, I am sure it will be another successful year of the Tournament this year.
Let us be ready and play ball!
