We took our first official baseball team to Barahona, DR to work with the I Love Baseball players on July 4th-13th. A total ofÂ 15 kids andÂ five adults from Faith Lutheran High School in Las Vegas, NV came down to play games and help improve the baseball field that our kids practice on daily.
During the week the team spent their mornings working with the ILB kids to clean up the field and build a batting cage. The batting cage will be a big help to the kids in the ILB program (batting practice has been very hard to come by because of limited practice space).
During the afternoons the team from Faith Lutheran played against some of the local high school aged teams in Barahona and with some strong coaching and good hitting they managed to win 3 of their 4 games.
