Train­ing good base for Daniel

Weekend Courier - - Sport -

ORELIA res­i­dent Daniel Choi rep­re­sented WA in a week-long stint over east as part of the School Sport Aus­tralia Base­ball Cham­pi­onship.

The Dar­ling Range Sports Col­lege stu­dent flew to Adelaide with 17 other stu­dents from WA schools to at­tend the Cham­pi­onships from May 1 to 5, which were held at Adelaide Shores and Glenelg Base­ball Club. WA fin­ished fifth in a field of six teams. Choi, who played third base, pitcher and catcher, said his hard work paid off to land him a spot on the School Sport Aus­tralia state team.

“It was fun but I had to train re­ally hard to get my po­si­tion on the team,” he said.

“I have been play­ing base­ball for around six years now and soon it will be my sev­enth.”

The Year 9 stu­dent said he had am­bi­tions to play pro­fes­sional base­ball one day.

“I hope to reach the (US) Ma­jor League one day. I want to play base­ball as long as I can,” he said.
