Visit with Moonlight Graham, Sens, France

Some of you may remember the American Baseball Missionary Society Mission to France!

Well, this led to Laurent and I proposing a youth baseball player exchange and it happened last week. Several players from Davis LL visited Sens, France met and played baseball with Laurent's teams - the Dodgers and Samurai.
I should have said something on this forum sooner, but if you are interested, my son and I created a blog to record our adventures.

If you follow this link, you will find that you can click through from day to day, from my reports to James’ (link near bottom right) as our journey continued.
Best,
Tom

hey that looks like it was a great time. what a way to introduce kids to a foreign country by showing commonalities among people. if this continues please keep us posted. i have two of my own who would love to play overseas - assuming i could afford it. but help comes from all sorts of directions when an opportunity like this presents itself.
