We’re proud to say that we recently brought 16-year old baseball player Fionn Gallaher-Hall to the USA to attend the Nike Baseball Camp in NY. Fionn, who lives and plays baseball in Ashbourne, County Meath, Ireland, spent the week at Mercy College, where he learned from area coaches and played with players from all over the United States.
Fionn’s trip was organized by the Baseball United Foundation, as part of our ongoing Baseball Exchange initiative. Each year, we bring international players to the US and send coaches and equipment overseas where they are needed to establish and strengthen youth baseball programs.
By the end of his week at baseball camp, Fionn had made some great friends and learned some valuable baseball tips:
