Do you know what my favourite part of the game is? The opportunity to play. I've been playing a sport ever since I can remember. Baseball in particular, has always been my passion. It has led me to a position where I have witnessed and experienced firsthand how not everyone in the world has an equal opportunity to play a sport. My love for sport provided me with the best childhood memories anyone could ask for, led me to obtaining a university education at a renowned military institution, and provided me an opportunity to travel the world. I have played baseball in America, Australia, Asia, and now in Africa. I have experienced the most extreme variations of the game from the sandlot grassroots to the perfectly manicured professional level. The constant variable throughout all of those levels was the sheer love, joy, and happiness that came with playing a game. Now in South Africa, working for Play Sport4Life, a non-profit organization that uses sport as a vehicle for transforming lives of those less fortunate. I have come to understand that playing sport is not a privilege, but a human right.
