Philippines guns for ‘four-peat’ in BFA East Asian Cup


After five long years, the Philippine Men’s National Baseball Team will not just get to defend the BFA East Asian Cup but also get to compete on the international stage.

The Philippines will send an all-homegrown team to the 13th BFA East Asian Cup, set to take place from April 29 to May 4 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The last time the Filipino batters were able to compete in an international tournament was back in the 30th Southeast Asian Games that saw them win gold.2019-SEA-GAMES-Blu-Boys-def-Indonesia-Aids-Bernardo Philippines guns for 'four-peat' in BFA East Asian Cup Baseball News  - philippine sports news
