I'm the manager of the Rudheath Majestics. We are a Baseball team in Northwich, Cheshire, in England.
it's a bit of a special team in a way that it was built mainly as a way to support pupils doing transition between primary school and high school (which is a bit of a problem here) as well as to help with other issues. (I can forward you articles in private if you fancy..)
What we're looking for is to "twin" ourselves with some teams in the U.S, and start possibly a pen-pal kinda thing with the kids and if we could benefit from more coaching tips, it would be really cool!
Baseball is not the most popular thing here but I found it really useful to address all sorts of problems. But we sometimes feel a bit alone here as the web presence is near to zero and we are the only LL team I know besides another one in Northern Ireland. So we play with the local Pony league teams (2 teams) and sometimes make a special trip 2 hours north to meet another team. All the rest are down south, the nearest 4 hours away.
Getting a few letters with pics or emails from "across the pond" would really make the kids happy, give them a feeling of being part of something bigger as well as provide inspiration and raise aspirations, which is a really important thing for us.
If you fancy being part of this project in a way, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (or I don't know how to email people directly here yet.. but if you can, do so!)
Thanks a lot!!
