Help Cheer the Ugandan Team at the Baseball Little League World Series in Pennsylvania
A team of 11-year-old baseball players from Kampala, Uganda has made it to the Baseball Little League World Series, and has traveled all the way to the United States to participate in the competition The Ugandan team is the first ever African team to make it to the World Series and will play its first game tomorrow (Friday, August 17, 2012) at 5pm in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
The Little League World Series is an annual event attended by thousands from around the world.
Unlike American and other international teams that have the benefit of having their family members watch them play live and cheer for them, the Ugandan team will not have their family members in the stadium to watch them play. All Ugandans and other East Africans in or around the Pennsylvania area are therefore strongly encouraged to attend the games and cheer their home team. The team is an underdog coming from a nontraditional baseball-playing country but with their strong will and your support they might cause some upsets.
The games will be held at Howard J. Lamade Stadium located at 539 U.S. Hwy. 15, Williamsport, PA 17702 (Tel: 570-326-1921). Tickets to the games are free.
The games, which take place between August 16 and August 26, will also be broadcast live and watched by millions on ABC and ESPN.
