MANILA--The Philippine women's baseball team has to wait a few more months before swinging again into action as the World Baseball Softball Confederation once again postponed the Women's Baseball World Cup.

Philippine Amateur Baseball Association president Chito Loyzaga confirmed the development on Thursday.

"We already got confirmation from the World Baseball Softball Confederation that the Women's World Cup, which is supposed to be held in Mexico this March, has been postponed to a later date," Loyzaga said during the online Usapang Sports forum by the Tabloid Organization in Philippine Sports.

This is the second time the WBSC had to postpone the Women's World Cup, which was initially scheduled last year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The latest developments, especially the emergence of the new COVID-19 variant from the United Kingdom, prompted the next rescheduling of the event.

"We are hopefully expecting that maybe it might be rescheduled again perhaps after the Olympic Games," Loyzaga added.

In effect, according to Loyzaga, the national team has to call off its training too.

"With regards to our women's [team], we will at least suspend first our training also because of the present pandemic and hopefully come back perhaps when we're in a better situation where we can have perhaps face to face training," he further said.
