SYDNEY, 27 September - The Australian Baseball League is proud to announce Futuretronics as an "Official Partner" of the 2012/2013 ABL season.

Futuretronics, Australia's number one gaming accessories brand, will partner with the Australian Baseball League to create a line of baseball accessories compatible with the Wii™ Sports baseball game.

Each of the six ABL teams will have their own customized adaptors that will transform the traditional Wii™ remote into a full form baseball bat and ball.

Futuretronics is launching this project in Australia through the ABL with hopes that success in this market will open doors in America with Major League Baseball, a shareholder in the Australian Baseball League.

All Futuretronics Baseball for Wii™ products will be available on the official Australian Baseball League website, as well as in all six ABL stadiums and leading retailers in Australia where Futuretronics products are currently found.

ABL National Partnerships Manager Gaby Anger says, "Futuretronics is a leader in the gaming accessory industry and we are excited to have the ABL brand associated with their customizable products."

Harry Chojna, CEO of Futuretronics says, "The ABL has done wonderful things to facilitate the growth of baseball in this country. We are excited to grow our customer base as the sport continues to expand.
