Jamiu Kofi Salami, the head coach of the Ghana Baseball National Team, resigned through a letter he personally delivered to the Ghana Baseball and Softball Federation (GBSF).
Salami served as the National Team skipper for nine years.
“I have taken this decision not because I have problems with anybody,” Jamiu Kofi Salami commented, “it has to do with personal issues.”
Before informing GBSF, Salami broke the news to his players.
Ghana hosted the first of the Qualifiers for the Baseball Africa Cup in the Nation’s Capital Accra.
Ghana was outscored, 14-4, in the first match by Burkina Faso and was defeated, 7-6, and eliminated in the rubber match by Nigeria.
Nigeria scored the winning run in the bottom of the seventh against reliever Boafo. With one out, shortstop David Yonusa reached on a fielding error and scored on another error, the eighth committed by Ghana’s defence.
Nonetheless, Ghana’s fans gave their National Team proud support for the duration of the tournament.
