Arcadia Little League Baseball has a big week ahead of them! This past weekend they have traveled to our sister city, Taipei Taiwan! There the boys, from ages 11-12 years old, will play in a tournament against hometown teams while taking in the culture of the Far East.

With baseball being a huge aspect of the Taiwanese culture, the Little League team is sure to have some great competition and most of all, memories to last a lifetime. The players are excited to see how the game is different abroad, from the size of the fields and if the Taiwanese teams participate in classic American baseball traditions, like chewing gum and spitting sunflower seeds.


 As of Tuesday, the team and their parent arrived in Taiwan! A weather delay kept them in San Francisco a bit longer than planned but the boys were able to catch a major league baseball game and even have a cameo on the jumbotron! The boys thus far have played 3 games and have won all of them! They have been on excursions to temples and enjoyed traditional meals. 


The boys and parents are home safe and sound and came back with an impressive 4-0 record against the elementary schools across Taipei. They shared gifts with each of the teams and bonded over the game both cultures love. The team also had the chance to experience some amazing landmarks along the way. In the end, it was an incredible trip for everyone involved and Phoenix Sister Cities is proud to have helped in making it happen for them!
