The 2018 Baseball 4 Africa National Showcase Tournament was featured. on KBC news. A short clip was aired on the 9pm news - watching the news is as popular a pastime in Kenya as baseball is in America - but this online edition is much more detailed than what the news bit.
We hope you will join us on Baseball Safari 2019 to be on hand for next year's tournament.
On 18 July 2018, a contingent of Bekoji Baseball Club's founding members hit the air waves of Addis Ababa, via EBC Radio / 104.7 FM, on the "High Time" youth information show with Assegid Mulugeta.
We had a blast talking baseball with Assegid for and hour, and hopefully put the baseball bug in a few more Ethiopian ears. We believe the new Prime Minister, His Excellency, Dr. Abiy, may have mentioned something about baseball in a speech a few days later, so maybe...
We can't stop listening to it. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
We'll toss a few more pics from the day up on Instagram shortly. If you don't already follow us there, please do: Instagram.com/world_baseball_project
On July 3, 2018, Rohobot Debele arrived at Jomo Kenyata International Airport, in Nairobi, Kenya. It was his first time on an airplane, as well as his first experience traveling to another country, from his native Ethiopia – a neighbour of Kenya to the north. It also marks, as far as available recorded history can show, the first time an Ethiopian has travelled abroad for the purposes of baseball. In other words, Rohobot made history.
