April 2023:


Things are returning to normal in Uganda. The school year started in early February and will end in late November. There will be a three week break between semesters in May which gives us a chance to once again host our Little League tournament. During the week of May 8, we will host the girls 12 and under softball tournament. The following Monday through Friday, we will host the boys 12 and under Little League Tournament. We doubt the winner of our tournaments will be allowed to continue on and travel to Poland for the European/Africa tournament that will allow the winner to continue on to the Little League World Series, as the last we heard, Uganda is banned from participating as we plan to win if we have to pay the $35,000 cost to get there. Little League, I guess is still studying breaking Africa away from Europe, which they apparently have been doing ever since 2007. Uganda will go on, as in the years before the pandemic, we participated in the RBI tournaments in Florida with both boys and girls teams in 2018 and 2019. We have also been approached by Babe Ruth League, which appears where we will be going in the future.


In regard to Little League, Uganda hurt the AVRS school as the government shut the schools down for two years and thus the only people who got hurt are the students who basically had two years taken away from their lives. Where we were able to get 12 year olds to enroll in our secondary school, now they have become 14 year olds. The Dodgers are trying to fix the problem for the next 4 or 5 years, by brining Primary students and helping them get through Primary school 7 so they can become our S1 students of next year at age 12. These primary students will be representing our school in this year's tournament.


Pitch in for Baseball is really an amazing organization We have been working with them for at least 17 years now, and they keep sending us more and more equipment. This is the only way baseball and softball equipment has been coming into Uganda. Every year, they ask us what we need and they pack it and we pay to ship it to Uganda. As far as we know, no store sells baseball equipment in Uganda. We started out with basically one large pallet about 20 years ago. This year, we shipped four pallets. They have now moved into a larger warehouse which I was invited to see earlier this year. They are expanding again. Soon we will be up to 5 pallets and eventually more. Our goal is expand Baseball and Softball throughout Uganda, and they are making a major contribution to making that happen.


While we are restarting our Little League tournament this May, we expect to be starting up our secondary school tournaments in early December or early January. We will decide that schedule probably during the Little League Tournaments. We do expect the secondary school program to expand in Africa. The next thing after we expand the secondary school program is what happens when the students graduate from the Secondary Schools. This is a problem the Uganda Baseball and Softball Federation now needs to begin to seriously work on. The Adult league has to come if they expect to eventually have Uganda playing in the Baseball Classic and the 2028 Los Angles Olympics. We can make it, but the Federation needs to accomplish a great deal. One thing that would help is the Dodgers continue on developing the baseball players for the Dodger organization and for the U.S. colleges. One female is graduating from college this coming January, and two of our male students are now students in a Houston, Texas University playing baseball. One a first year student and one now in his second year.
