XII AA WORLD YOUTH BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS
The IBAF-sanctioned championships is underway for the top 13-15 year olds in the world. Hosted in Monterrey, Mexico, the competition is split into two pools. Group A consists of: the US, Japan, Netherlands, Mexico, Russia and South Africa. Group B consists of: Australia, Brazil, Chinese Taipei, Cuba and the Czech Republic. Play began on 8/19/05 and will continue through 8/28/05. You can follow all of Team USA's action here. One interesting note for Team USA, is that the team will be led by super stud - Robert Stock, who impressed the hell out of me when he played against an older CT national team this past summer. See content that I posted on 8/6/05 for pics and comments on Robert Stock.
