Flynn’s current goal is to continue raising baseball’s profile in New Zealand.
“We have grown from 900 players to more than 6,000 in the past few years … and I sincerely believe we could hit the six figure mark over the course of the next decade if resources begin to open up for us,” said Flynn. “With success comes more money and resources, though now it’s the old chicken and the egg scenario. You have to prove yourself to receive additional funding and support, both from a domestic standpoint as well as from foreign sources. But our profile has grown a great deal in the country, and we have a lot of key people on our side.”
