Canada thrills Uganda with Little League tour

Team Canada flies in after Uganda denied chance to be first African team to play in Little League World Series.

    The dream of a young Ugandan team to become the first African squad to play in the Little League World Series was dashed when their entry visas to the US were denied due to improper documents.

    In response, the Canadian national team, which was scheduled to play against the Ugandans in the first round, raised money and flew to Africa on a goodwill tour.

    During their visit, the Canadians have donated equipment, held training sessions and helped turn wasteland into baseball diamonds.
