Baseball development in Kouga got a shot in the arm with a donation of the sport’s equipment to three local primary schools by a Cape Town-based sports academy and Major League Baseball South Africa.

The schools are Mzingisi, Makukhanye and Pellsrus Primary Schools.

The donation came about through a Facebook contact between local resident Thanduxolo “Lefty” Ndabambi, African Sport Training Academy executive member Sharon Siljeur and her sport enthusiast husband Roderick.

The Siljeurs are originally from Kouga and have a home in Jeffreys Bay and did not hesitate to contact Ndabambi who declared an interest in the sport and left his details on their Facebook page.

They facilitated the involvement of Edwin Bennett who is the Development Manager for SA Major League Baseball who donated half of the items.

The kit includes helmets, balls, bats and catching equipment. There are tees as well for their younger children.

Speaking at the handover of the equipment at the municipal headquarters in Jeffreys Bay Sharon said even though ASTA was based in Cape Town, they could not let an opportunity to make a difference pass them by.

“We are about teaching children life skills, talent identification and nurturing and our ultimate goal is to create Olympians,” she said.

The Siljeurs are planning to come relocate to Kouga after Roderick’s retirement next year.

“We will continue helping with the development of the sport, helping in building capacity in coaching and manage as we are accredited training provides,” said Sharon.

Social Services Portfolio Councillor Daniel Benson the two bodies on behalf of the recipients.

“We are happy that we are now adding to the diverse range of sporting codes and we are starting at grassroots level.

“Though this provides a challenge for us as a municipality, as we do not have typical baseball fields, we will be happy to be part of the development of the sport in our area,” he said
