Baseball Dreams




It's a baseball run that's crossing continents like never before. Almost unknown to the rest of India, Imphal has been nurturing baseball dreams for its 20 clubs and planning to build India's first baseball park. At the forefront is First Pitch, the US Manipur Baseball project started in 2002. They are getting top American coaches and major league players to perfect the pitch and pass on the mania. Bhanu Devi ( in picture) is one of the coaches who is travelling to New York this year. Her dream: To have players from Manipur play in Major League. In a cricket crazy nation, Manipur surely has stolen this run from the rest of India
