Baseball Ready For Take-Off

FAILURE OF the Ghana Baseball and Softball Association (GHABSA), since its formation 16 years ago, to make a major impact on the local and international scenes, according to Albert Seth Ocran, is due to lack of logistics, financial, technical and promotional supports.

In spite of GHABSA's 'no show', "the performance of President George Bush with Ghanaian kids gave a booster and international recognition to the nation's base and soft ball sports", he said.

 

Mr. Ocran, the President of GHABSA, made these remarks when he and other GHABSA officials pre¬sented a five-year development plan to the National Sports Council (NSC) in Accra this week.

 

He stressed that his association would honour President George Bush of the United States of America, H.E. Alhaji Aliu Mahama, Vice President of Ghana, and Ambassador Pamela Bridgewater as life patrons in July this year for their immense contribution and keen interest in the development of the sport in Ghana.

 

The NSC's Head of Public Rela¬tions, Hamah Hamid Issakah, who stood in for Hon Prince Oduro-Men¬sah, Chief Executive of NSC, prom¬ised his outfit's support for GHABSA and cautioned that with such support the association should be able to suc¬ceed in delivering its five-year plan.

 

The baseball game in Ghana, until it was re-launched in the last four years, had failed to appeal to the Ghanaian sporting public. But Mr. Ocran observed that the game in re¬cent times had not done badly at all.

 

"Ghana is becoming a beacon in Africa. Our team won bronze re¬cently."

 

GHABSA's five-year plan (2009¬2014) was presented to the NSC for onward transmission to the Ministry Education, Science and Sports for study.

 

Included in the plan is the con¬struction of a baseball stadium at the University of Ghana, Legon.

 

The land was donated to GHABSA by the university and funded by the African Development Foundation (ADF), with support from government.

 

Currently the Ghana select side for the African Baseball and Softball meeting to be held in Burkina Faso are camped non-residentially in Tema for the preparation of the competition slated for July 11-14, 2008.

 

Nigeria, Cote D'Ivoire, Togo, Mali, Burkina Faso and Ghana will be vying for honours in the six-nation championship.
