The Journal News (Westchester County, NY) has written a column about The Baseball United Foundation’s efforts to deliver baseball equipment to Kenya, as part of our Baseball Exchange initiative:
Over the past two summers, the foundation has brought a couple of young Irish players to the U.S. for instruction. It has also donated more than 1,000 pounds of baseball equipment to Ireland.
But is latest venture, 4,500-plus miles from Ireland and 8,500-plus miles from the U.S., shows that it’s serious about taking baseball worldwide.
Kenya is embracing baseball, and Fitzgerald and his foundation are helping. (Source: Journal News, March 16, 2016)
