SEA Games 2011 Palembang Updates Ver. 1

I just learnt today that the Cambodian Baseball Federation had a change or leadership recently. The new President, Mr. Phin Sarun was unanimously elected to replace founder Mr. Joe Cook, and flanked by a 9-member committee comprising of 2 Japanese Nationals based in Ho Chi Min City.

Its was further reported that the new Committee revealed the Cambodian National Baseball Team was destined not to compete in the SEA Games 2011 in Jakarta/Palembang, due to financial constraints, but their keeping their hopes up for any last minute changes in faith.

With Cambodia out of the picture, the possible contenders are left with Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar. The INASOC (Indonesian SEA Games Organizing Committee) had pre-determined that the Baseball Events would be held subject to a minimum of 5 participating countries. As at 1st August 2011, the INASOC had only received Entries by Numbers from Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines. With the latest development, participations from Myanmar and Thailand are crucial for the continuance of the event.

Let’s all of us pray..
