CHASEing a dream - Baseball ME!

So…here’s the thing. I have a DREAM. Its not huge, but its mine.

And I need help to make it happen.

I dream of playing baseball in the States! While I would love it to be at a professional level I am enough of a realist to know that is like a one in a million chance. So the next best thing is to get a scholarship to play College / University ball – combining my love of the game with furthering my education.

To do that I have to get myself in front of scouts….and that is where the help needed bit comes in.

From June 18, 2018, I am joining a month long World Baseball Showcases  playing tour of the States  with a number of other Australian hopefuls. On tour we will be playing roughly a whole season worth of games in just one month, all in front of scouts. It’s my shot at making my dream a reality. And at US$3,500 + airfare, travel insurance and other living expenses for a month, it doesn’t come cheap.

I have trained for years to get to a level to have a chance of catching the eye of a Collegiate team or professional scout. I put in the hard yards with training every week, I work two jobs, I help coach a junior baseball team, I umpire senior games, and at 18 I’ve only just left school.

Do you remember what it was like to be 18 and dream big??? 

I will be so grateful for any donation, no matter how small, to help me on my way with the 2018 World Baseball Showcase tour. Even if you choose only to share this request you are supporting me in no small way to achieve my goal. That makes me smile.


 I hope that you will be able to follow my baseball career, and maybe one day even hear more of me, Chase Karn.
