In the African country of Uganda, there are two million orphans. Nearly half of the children have lost their parents from AIDS, a terrible and widespread disease.
Many children are very poor. Many live in slums.
However, some children in Uganda have found something great that helps them in their lives: playing baseball.
Uganda’s Little League team is very good. So good, in fact, that last year they beat the team that had held the regional championship for 11 years, Saudi Arabia.
It was the first time that an African team had won the regional tournament.
