Lagos – The Nigeria Baseball and Softball Association (NBSA) on Friday said the National U-15 Championships earlier scheduled to hold from July 24 to July 30 in Ilorin had been postponed.
The association’s Secretary, Kehinde Laniyan, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the postponement was to enable the hosts stage a befitting tournament.
“The NBSA national U-15 championships scheduled for this month will no longer hold due to a request by Kwara Sliders Club who are the hosts of the event.
“We regret inconveniences resulting from this decision and believe that the postponement will enable Kwara Sliders to prepare adequately to stage a hitch free championship,’’ Laniyan said.
He said that a new date would be announced soon; urging clubs and states not to be deterred by the development.
He also appealed to the government and corporate bodies to support the association to promote the sport.
