World Children’s Baseball Fair

Guess what? I am going to Japan! The WCBF (World Children’s Baseball Fair) is an organization that get’s kids together to play baseball. Every year the Town of Cary, NC picks two people from the ages of 10 and 11 to play baseball in a different country. This time it is in Japan. 3 other kids from the USA get picked nationally to play. Every year they pick 5 people from 20 different countries. I will be traveling with a chaperone not my parents. I will be going on July 20th to July 30th. There will be about a 12 hour difference from where I am. So I will have to call my parents right when I wake up or right before I go to bed. For the first half of the day I will be doing baseball clinics and for the second half of the day I will be doing cultural exchange events. When I heard that I won I was really excited. But I thought about it and I am not going with my parents so I am a little scared. I know the chaperone because he has taught some of the clinics that I have went to. But I am definitely more excited than scared.

  1. “Butch”,
    This will truly be a “once in a lifetime ” experience,
    go and enjoy this opportunity to the fullest, do not
    concern yourself about being away from home, you are a fine,
    kind, bright, mature and responsibile young man.
    I’m very confident that your actions will bring “HONOR”
    to you, your family, your community, your city and state,
    but most of all the “HONOR” of representing our country.
    wear that uniform with “USA” very proudly, as I know you
    will and continue to be a source of pride to all of us,
    as you have been in the past.
    I love, love,love you very much.

  2. I love your blog Andrew! I can tell from this post just how excited you were about going to Japan. I can’t wait to read what you write about the experience now that you are back home. Do you have pictures? That would be neat to see!
    I hope you keep up with your website, especially after you go to middle school next year!! Keep up the great work!
