Cubs Welcome the World back to Cody
Written by Cole Havens on June 20, 2022
The Cubs are set to welcome the World back to Cody. All week long, the Cody Cubs will play host to the World Baseball Showcases Teams.
According to their Facebook page: World Baseball Showcases provides international baseball development through competitive games and once in a lifetime experiences. They provide the opportunity for international baseball players to develop and pursue their dream of playing college or professional baseball. Our trips consist of a competitive schedule of games nearly every day as well as once in a lifetime experiences experiences along the way. The players are coached by an elite coaching staff with ties to college and professional baseball.
This will be the 3rd year that Cody hosts the World Baseball Showcases. Now how did a team like this end up in Cody, Wyoming? Well Assistant coach of the Cubs Andy Schroeder and Head Coach of this International Team, Steve Fish went to college together.
Prior to the first time these teams played in 2020 I caught up with Andy Schroeder who helped make this happen.
In that first year I also caught up with Coach Fish to get his thoughts on the whole game experience.
