Preliminary notes from Shawna Macurio, Principal, North American Liberty Belles:
There are 6 of us from the States and Canada going (5 of our core Belles players and a gal from the D.C. Thunder). We will combine with 6 gals from the Long Zhu school in Shenzhen, which is next to Hong Kong in mainland China. They play both fastpitch and baseball and have been training almost everyday for the past 2 years. We will have 2 of our coaches there (Rocky Ostrom and Philipe Yan), and Long Zhu will also have 2 coaches there.
I heard there will be 7 teams there counting us. There will be 2 from Korea this year…
