Both sides of the pond …

The Anglo-American Baseball Project is making good progress toward making our 2018 baseball match in England a reality. More and more people in the US and the UK are learning about our plans, and we’ve made several good new contacts recently. Here is some of what’s been happening:

We’re very pleased to announce that our 2018 event will help support Wings for Warriors. You can learn more about former US Navy corpsman Anthony "Doc" Ameen and his fine group on our Veterans page and at wingsforwarriors.org. We hope to announce support for a second US veterans group soon. We’re also seeking partnerships with similar groups in the UK. Please get in touch with us if you have suggestions.

AABP cofounder and author Jim Leeke recently had a lively discussion with Dean Karayanis of the History Author Show. The episode will go live on July 4 on the show’s website, and will be available on iHeartRadio, iTunes and other digital outlets. We also expect to share a local print and video interview later in July. Follow us on social media (via the icons at the lower right of this page) for links to every new story and interview.

Our UK followers might like to know that we’re planning to see the national team from Great Britain play in the World Baseball Classic qualifier in Brooklyn in September. Let us know if you're going, too. We’d love to meet you there and cheer on British baseball.
