Players, coaches and organizers will be out in full force to spread awareness for cancer relief and treatment for families and patients.
Baseball provides the perfect setting for Indians and other nationalities to connect and build relationships outside of the daily grind.
With a number of schools planning to establish baseball programmes after exams, now is the perfect time to learn about baseball and the opportunities it brings India’s talented athletes.
It was a thrilling day of baseball and international competition at Grand Slam Baseball’s New Delhi Little League this Saturday. In addition to close games between the Modern School Barakhamba Warriors and the Thundercats, the players were visited by Former US Ambassador to India David Mulford and his wife Jeannie. As lifelong baseball fans and major supporters of growing the game in India, the Mulfords added to the excitement of big hits and razor sharp pitching from the talented young ballplayers.
After throwing out the ceremonial first pitch, the former Ambassador and his wife took their seats to enjoy the game from where they used to watch many the teams and Indian players they sponsored during their tenure.
Despite first putting on a baseball glove just 3 months ago, the Modern School Warriors proved to be a powerful force against the likes of seasoned American, Japanese and international players. The Warriors turn heads walking into Modern School with baseball bats and leather gloves and each game at the Embassy provides an excellent intercultural experience for the players and supporters. With schools lining up to establish competitive baseball programs to compete in major tournaments within India and abroad, the Modern School Barakhamba Warriors are a big part of India’s bright athletic future.
