The club tweeted that “someone in the top 50 career home run leaders and a former Cy Young winner” are among players interested in coming to Auckland.

The Cy Young is awarded to the best pitcher in a season in each of the two leagues in Major League Baseball.

“What if I told you some of the biggest names in the sport were keen to play for the Tuatara this season? We need this Covid-19 situation under control, folks,” the club wrote on its Twitter account earlier.
