First Baseball Game in Orahovica

On June 11th, our small town got to see their first baseball game ever! 
In mid-May, Jeremy met with a missionary in a city an hour away about the possibility of coordinating what would turn out to be the first game for both teams.  The day was a huge success.  Though Orahovica lost (9-7), it was a competitive and well attended event.  Three representatives of the Croatian Baseball League came from Zagreb to umpire, and explain the rules to the spectators while the game was in progress.  
Jeremy had the chance to coach, pitch and hit.

He also was able to have a great conversation with his assistant coach about Jesus after the game as they were packing up.  Please keep him in your prayers. 

We have a need!  Please consider how you may be able to help provide uniforms and catcher's equipment for our team.  At this point we are using the other team's catcher's gear and are just using t-shirts during the game.  But we have the potential to play other teams in Croatia and Serbia and would love to have real uniforms.  Please contact Jeremy at if you're interested in helping.
