The Chandler National Little League missed out on its chance to qualify for the Little League World Series but the players will still get a taste of the international play that comes with qualification.
Working with the local Taiwanese Community, the Arizona Governor’s Office and Taiwan Chamber of Commerce, Chandler has organized a goodwill tour and cultural exchange involving the Mayor of Tainan City, Taiwan and Tainan’s championship little league team.
The visit will include exhibition games and baseball skills training involving the Tainan Little League Team (11 & 12 year olds) and Chandler National Little League Majors Team on Tuesday and Thursday at Snedigar Sportsplex, which is located at 4500 S. Basha Road.
Chandler National went 1-3 in the West Region in San Bernardino to miss out on its chance to play in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., after winning the District 13 title and the Arizona state tournament.
The public is encouraged to attend and Baseball Player University (BPU) will provide a clinic prior to the Aug. 12 game led by former major league and college coach, Jeff Forney.
The clinic and games will be filmed and included on a future episode of BPU TV, www.bputv.com
