Well, this is a nice surprise! As we continue to plug along in our “30 Days of Irish Baseball” countdown to St. Patrick’s Day, we have learned that The Huffington Post has published a story about Baseball Ireland, The Baseball United Foundation, and the past, present, and future of Irish Baseball!
“Just as Americans love St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, Guinness beer, and U2’s music, the Irish, likewise, equally adore American culture, from movies and television to sports. Baseball is the latest American sport to take hold in Ireland and not just in spectating. The Irish have been actively playing baseball at an internationally competitive level since about 1995.”
Obviously, it’s always great to see major media outlets reporting on the awesomeness that is Irish Baseball. In our quest to spread the word and find more and more Irish Baseball fans, this sort of media attention helps in a big way.
By the way, if you’d like to show the world your Irish Baseball pride, get yourself a T-shirt or cap in our online store.
