My name is Huw Beynon, and I'm off on a baseballing adventure. In a bid to learn how we can best grow the game we love in New Zealand, I'm off to sunny San Diego.

While over there I intend to spread to word that New Zealand are fast becoming a powerhouse in America's Pastime, soak up as much knowledge as I can from Baseball NZ's friends at the San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks, keep a watchful eye on our young Kiwi stars playing college ball... and play a little bit (a lot) of the game myself.

Unless I'm signed to multi million dollar deal to play first base in the majors, which let me tell you is highly likely, I intend to bring all that knowledge back to NZ and help Ryan Flynn and his awesome team grow the game in the Land of the Long White Cloud.

Throughout this blog I'll update you all on the awesome games I see, incredible baseball people I meet, and huge home runs I hit (both figuratively, and let's face it, physically)

I'll also post heaps of photos and videos as I go.

Please comment if you want to, or you can find me on twitter... @huw_beynon 

Speak soon!



Huw Beynon spent four years as a sports reporter for 3News before recognising the potential the sport he loves has in New Zealand, and deciding he wanted to help. Thanks to Baseball New Zealand, he headed to the USA to learn from the best. First baseman. Bomb squad.
