Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Uganda and Kenya have already qualified for the Africa Cup, which will be played May 1 to May 5. The winner of the Africa Cup will advance to the Europe/Africa Qualifier, with the winner of that event qualifying for the 2020 Olympics.

Nigeria to Play U-13 Baseball Tournament

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Nigeria will be playing their first annual u-13 baseball tournament with 16 schools from Lagos, Oyo, Kwara, Ondo and Ekiti.  The games will be played January 16 at Jubril Martins Grammar School in Ipnori.  The games will conclude on January 19.

It is hoped that this tournament prepares the team for the West Africa U-12 tournament in Burkina Faso.  This tournament would also assist them in selecting players for the IBAF World Junior Championship coming up in March.  Myworld is not familiar with any IBAF World Junior Championship in March, but perhaps it has not been announced yet.
