Matt Werner: Guatemalan Adventure #4

Edgewood College baseball alum Matt Werner is spening six months in Guatemala. The first three parts of his blog can be found here, here and here.

Well, so far the kids at the school have been practicing baseball for about two weeks and although they haven't mastered the techniques of catching and throwing they have been begging me to do some hitting. So today using a tennis ball and a stick we played a little stickball with the gloves (now up to 8 in quantity thanks to the Gandara family down here). So we didn't have enough players for two teams or enough gloves for one complete team but the kids loved learning the rules and hitting the ball. After the game the kids told me they want to play everyday who knows what will happen when all the kids come back at the beginning of the school year..maybe tryouts??

Matt Werner: Guatemalan Adventure #3

Part Three of Matt Werner's blog on his time spent in Guatemala. You can read Part One and Part Two here.

Today, was the second day of class and we learned phrases like: Hello, my name is... Nice to meet you...How are you...I am well...and numbers 1-20 and did some activities like introducing ourselves to others and writing out the numbers of people's ages we know from 1-20 using the English word form. After class was the first day we practiced baseball!! Yes I said baseball!! I have about 2 gloves I brought down from Wisconsin and Enrique Gandara (board of trustee member at Edgewood who is overseeing my expedition) gave me 4 gloves he had at his house in Guatemala city. So we learned how to throw and catch. We are going to practice again tomorrow because the kids love it although they look like it is the first time they have played the sport (because it is).
