THF JAKARTA OPENING SOON
In the next three weeks, The Hit Factory is opening a 20,000-square-foot facility in Jakarta! Located 5km from the Senayan baseball fields (2015 SEAYBST location), 6km from the Jakarta International School (JIS) and 25km from the airport, THF Jakarta is in a prime location.
This is very exciting news for THF Singapore members, as the opening of this facility and its close proximity to Singapore will hopefully create future opportunities for games and exchange programs for all of THF’s players.

THF STAFF UPDATE
The THF Staff continues to expand, and the latest addition is Kristin Azevedo. Kristin will be THF Singapore’s Facilities & Business Manager, and will handle the financial components of the business. Kristin has an accounting background and is already familiar with THF, as her son Will is a member of the 12U Club Team. THF is happy to welcome Kristin to the team, and excited to have her as apart of the staff.
With THF Jakarta opening in the next few weeks, the coaching staff will start to look slightly different. Owen Reid, THF’s Director of Operations, will oversee the opening of THF’s second facility, and current THF Professional Coach CJ Maeda will make the move to Jakarta, where he will be a permanent fixture in the staff. Coach CJ will work alongside Reuben ‘Argee’ Eduardo, who will take on the role of Business Manager & Assistant Coach. A resident of Jakarta, Coach Argee has been instrumental in the development of youth baseball in Jakarta, and is extremely connected in the Indonesian baseball and softball community.
The Branch Manager Head Coach of THF Jakarta will be Anthony Bennett, who, although new to the THF staff, is not unfamiliar with The Hit Factory. Coach Anthony made a visit to THF Singapore in March, where he was able to work closely with Club Team Members. Coach Anthony spent time in the Milwaukee Brewers organization and has coached high-level baseball in multiple countries, including managing national teams throughout Europe and representative teams in Australia.
THF BASEBALL & SOFTBALL SUMMER CAMP
THF will be offering two 4-week summer camps! These baseball and softball camps will be for players between 5-14 years old, and will take place at THF and the United World College (UWC) Dover campus. ATTACHED IS A FLYER with more information about the THF Summer Camp, including cost and registration details.
SOX SHOW WELL IN INAUGURAL SINGAPORE TOURNAMENT
Over this past weekend, THF’s 10U, 12U and 14U teams participated in the inaugural Lion City Classic, held at the Singapore American School. Strong performances on the diamond led to the 10U and 14U teams playing in the championship games of their respective age groups, and the 12U team finishing in 3rd place. The Lion City Classic will certainly prepare Sox players for the Shanghai Slam, which is taking place at the end of May.
THF SENDING THREE TEAMS TO SHANGHAI
Here we come, Shanghai! For the second consecutive year, THF will be participating in the Shanghai Slam. Sox players are eager to put their skills into action in China! Follow the 10U, 12U and 14U teams’ progress in Shanghai by liking The Hit Factory’s Facebook page.
As always, our friendly, professional staff looks forward to working with you.
See you at the yard!
