Just some quick snap shots from last Saturday at Nate Bailey Stadium. It was a quick shoot, but a very meaningful for me. To me it marked the beginning of Pearl of Africa Series II for me. Nearly 2 years ago I travelled to Uganda with our local Langley little league baseball team. The story is told here: http://www.sportsnet.ca/fair-ball-from-canada-to-uganda/.
Now, I am getting ready to return to Uganda. In January and February I will be in Uganda for 3 weeks to teach a baseball scouting video workshop, shoot some scouting videos of the excellent local talents there, and shoot a small documentary on the progress Pearl of Africa Series has made in the last 2 years. I am beyond excited to see all my friends in Uganda again.
In these photos here, Dr. Ed Conway, POAS coordinator Ruth Hoffman, along with volunteers Sandy and Jeff, are packing up boxes of equipment donated to POAS. It was really great to see so much baseball equipment has been donated, but the kids in Uganda can definitely use more. No more games stopped because a ball has disappeared in the grass. No more running on bare feet. No more injuries.
These equipment will be on its way to Uganda in the next little while. So will I.
