There’s a neat story in the Wall Street Journal today about a man named George¬†Mukhobe, a Ugandan who was taught baseball when he was a boy. Now he teaches baseball to Ugandans and is a key part of Uganda actually fielding a competitive Little League World Series squad.

WSJ reporter Jonathan Miller paid Mukhobe a visit and watched as he taught the game to young children who had probably first seen a baseball five minutes prior. It’s a good read. Go check it out.
