Uganda made it to the Little League World Series this year, but last year they weren’t so lucky. It was about this time last year that I was in Uganda with my family, and this came up in conversation a few times. It’s great to see a new country embrace baseball on their own terms and I’m glad this ultimately had a happy ending for the kids, even if they ended up getting bounced from the tournament.

Check out this piece from The Sporting News to read more about the team and how J-Roll threw in some support.

The team was at the Phillies game last night, and no trip to the Bank is complete without dancing on the field with the Phanatic. Which means that I’ve always left disappointed.
