Uganda - 1st African country at the Little Leagues World Series

Congrats to the little ones from Uganda for putting Africa on the Little Leagues World Series MAP by being the first from Africa to qualify to play in the Tournament. Africa is blessed with so many natural born talents that just need the necessary training and sport medicine + performance staff/gears to refine their skills...they are like uncut gems, just waiting to be polished so they can show the world their sparkle ^_^.
I will be keeping an eye on this team.
Good luck and all the best wishes for the future.
