Four young Hungarian sportsmen arrived on July 2 at Moose Baseball in Washington, DC from the Budapest Reds Baseball Academy to learn new skills in the homeland of the sport. The first ever Hungarian-American baseball player exchange program aims to develop baseball in Central Europe and Hungary to make it more available to all ages with hopes for a lasting impact on an international scale.

David Thompson, President of Moose Baseball said, that they prepared a full-immersion baseball program and are excited about this new opportunity to host the four young players.


Hungarian natives Máté Belle, Ádám Piros, Dominik Staindl and Zsolt Győri will spend four months in Washington, DC to grow their knowledge of the game of baseball from American coaches and hone their skills for the European Championship in Belgium later this month.


In exchange, Will Gibson, a former Moose player and right-handed pitcher will serve as a player-coach and share his knowledge with the Budapest Reds Pro-Am team.
