The official podcast of The Australian Baseball League.

The latest big announcement about the Australian baseball scene was made this afternoon in Canberra and Yokohama, with the Canberra Cavalry and two-time NPB champions the Yokohama DeNA BayStars announcing that the clubs have entered into a strategic partnership.

While there have been players sent from NPB clubs to play in the ABL in the past, this agreement is the first extensive one signed between clubs in the two leagues. It will give the Cavalry exposure in Japan, and BayStars personnel - both on and off the field) development opportunities in Australia during the ABL season.

Some other ABL clubs have been reaping the benefits of overseas players and influence, so what can the Cavalry expect from an agreement like this? Australia's Micheal Nakamura played Major League Baseball in the USA, and in the NPB in Japan, and is one of the most-qualified people in Australia to say what this deal could mean for Canberra and Australian baseball.

Hear Micheal and Chris Coleman chat in this episode of Strike Zone Australia.
