Touching Base Episode 11: England WON the World Cup?

Wed 15 Aug 2018

Taking a page from history and using it to shield ourselves from the sun, it's episode 11 of Touching Base, a podcast from BaseballSoftballUK.

You might not know this, but it's eighty years since England became the surprise winners of the inaugural World Cup, held in 1938 on home soil, and BaseballSoftballUK is celebrating this event all week with special world cup themed content available on our website and social media.

Here to take us through the events leading up to this little-known part of UK Baseball history is Baseball historian and former GB International Josh Chetwynd who some viewers will know from his work on the Channel 5s Baseball coverage in the early naughties.

Together we talk about the origins of what was known as the International Test series, some of the stars of the series, and how the series became known as the World Cup.
