Gilas Pilipinas women’s project director and head coach Pat Aquino joins the Philippine Blu Boys as special guests in the Tuesday, Dec. 6, session of the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum at the ground floor of the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex.
Aquino is set to leave for the US this holiday season to look for potential players who can be naturalized and suit up for the women’s national team. The multi-titled coach is expected to talk about the trip and other plans for the women’s program in the session that starts at 10 a.m.
Blu Boys pitching coach Ray Pagkaliwagan and infielder Jerome Bacarisas, on the other hand, share their experience in the just concluded Men’s Softball World Cup, where the country finished its highest placing ever at No. 10. The team arrived from Auckland, New Zealand late Sunday night.
The weekly public sports program is presented by San Miguel Corporation (SMC), MILO, Philippine Sports Commission, Philippine Olympic Committee, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR).
PSA president Rey Lachica, sports editor of Tempo, enjoins members to attend the session being held face-to-face again.
The Forum is livestreamed via the PSA Facebook page fb.com/PhilippineSportswritersAssociation and aired on a delayed basis over Radyo Pilipinas 2, which also shares it on its official Facebook page.
