As we get closer to the European Championship Qualifier Tournament in Zurich, members of the Irish Junior National Baseball Team are working hard to get ready.

However, with players scattered across Ireland and the United States, it can be a challenge to workout as a team.

Thanks to email, video, and social media, the  coaching staff is able to keep track of each player’s progress. Here are some recent videos of Irish baseball players in action, including a video from an informal workout at Hardball Training Center in Elmsford, NY, that was attended by players from New York, Connecticut, and New Hampshire.
