Lahore, April 28, 2021 (PPI-OT): Pakistan Baseball Team qualifies for 19th Asian Games 2022 The Asian Games are scheduled from September 18-22, 2022 in Hangzhou, China. According to Syed Fakhar Ali Shah, President of the Pakistan Federation Baseball Federation, during the meeting of the Executive Committee of the Baseball Federation of Asia in Taiwan it is decided that the Pakistan Baseball team will participate in the 19th edition of Asian Games to be held in China next year. Twelve teams including Pakistan will take part in the baseball event. Participating teams are Japan (World No. 1), Korea (World No. 3), Taiwan (World No. 4), China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Mongolia and Laos.
According to Syed Fakhr Ali Shah, Pakistan’s participation in the Asian Games is a good news. Pakistan baseball team has qualified for the Asian Games for the fourth time in a row due to its excellent performance. In the last Asian Games held in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2018, instead of Pakistan’s full 24-member team, 16 players took part, but the team still performed very well and finished fifth in the Games.
Syed Fakhr Ali Shah added that there is no regular ground for baseball in Pakistan and we have to set up camps for team training in cricket or football grounds. If the government provides us with a dedicated ground for baseball, the performance of the Pakistan team can be further enhanced and improved.
