Expand baseball and softball in our
respective countries as equipment is made available to include thousands of
boys and girls in each country playing baseball and softball.
Expand Little League Baseball into 30
African Countries. Committee members will assist any country wishing
to be active participants.
Hosting All African Baseball and Girls
Softball Regional Little League Tournaments for all age groups with the
winners going directly to the U.S. every August to play for the World
The Little League African Baseball
Committee will train thousands of coaches and umpires. They will all
be trained, not only in baseball and softball, but with a heavy emphasis on
AIDS/HIV, Malaria and Tuberculosis prevention since they will be having
excellent contacts with thousands of children from age 6 to 18.
The committee, with the help of all
friends of baseball, will attempt to have all African Governments remove
taxes and duties on donated baseball equipment sent to Little League
programs in Africa.
The committee, with the help of its
friends at Little League International and Major League Baseball, will work
to reduce the costs of getting donated equipment shipped to African
Countries by working with the U.S. Government to render assistance in this
area, and hopefully shipping it through the U.S. Embassies.
As programs develop, we will look to
individual Major League Teams to possibly sponsor programs in an African
Country. Eventually, even supporting a Baseball Academy in their
African Little League Programs will
look to use the facilities and skills of the established South African
Baseball program for training of coaches and umpires.
The committee members will work to
obtain sponsorships from International Corporations and other agencies and
organizations to support the African Program.
The committee members will seek to
arrange cooperative baseball programs through the “Sister Cities” program.
The committee members will work to get
all African Countries to participate in all National and International
Tournaments in Africa and throughout the World.
While the committee now consists of
only four members, we encourage all countries who wish to develop Little
League Baseball and other baseball programs to join us as active members.
