Two Central Coast Marlins’ players were a part of the Australian team that took out the gold during the 2019 Under 18’s Oceania Baseball World Cup Qualifier.
Held in the country of Guam, from January 21-27, the qualifier pitted the best of Oceania’s young baseball players against each other for a shot at glory in the Baseball World Cup.
Marlins’ player, Tristan Watts, was selected for the Australian team off the back of a powerful performance during the Australian Youth Championships, and was joined by fellow Marlin and Assistant Coach, Shaun Smith, in the qualifier.
“Massive congratulations to Tristan and Shaun on taking out the gold,” said Marlins’ President, David Bryant.
“This is huge news as it qualifies Australia to compete in the Under 18’s World Cup in Korea later this year.
“Well done Tristan and Shaun, we are so proud to call you Marlins,” Bryant said.
