Habanero has a baseball team!
All this learning in important for any young person to learn, especially early in life. Learning there are consequences from your actions is always beneficial. Mistakes will happen. Wrong choices will happen. Why not make them on the ball field when your're young instead of in your job or your marriage?
When I was in Habanero in July I was amazed at how the baseball field was continuously being used. There were children on the field all the time playing baseball even with no coaches and no assistants. In 15 years of working in Habanero I've never seen that. EVER.
The Longview Soccer Association donated tubs of mix and match shirts that serve as our uniforms. The boys are so proud to have the same color shirts!
Thank you to Jenny Thompson who coordinated equipment donations from Good Sport Equipment Connection in Vancouver, WA. Habanero has bats, balls, gloves and even catcher's equipment!
The boys are all hoping they will one day play baseball in America. Although that might not be a reality for most of them, playing baseball in a uniform representing your little village can be pretty darn close...............
