Holliston High School baseball coach Harvey Krupnick was selected by Major League Baseball to travel to Africa as part of the league’s envoy program.

It’s always nice to be back in the good ‘ol USA after four very interesting weeks in South Africa.

I ended up working 54 baseball clinic or practices over a 28-day period. My major league baseball manual had daily journal entry forms and each evening I would write in how many players and coaches were in attendance at each clinic. By the end of my trip I had coached 606 kids who had already been playing baseball, 853 new kids who had never played baseball and 196 coaches who were in attention during those clinics. That comes out to approximately 1,459 players plus 196 coaches, which is 1,655 total attention at all the practices and clinics.

I slept in seven different locations - Johannesburg, Durbin, Mdantsane, George, Oudtshoon, Cape Town and Paarl - and with seven different host families. Each host family was really into baseball all year around. They took care of my place to sleep, food, clinic scheduling and travel. It was exciting and interesting to meet so many new people and find out all about them and a little sad to have to say goodbye after interacting so closely with them.

One personally gratifying part of the trip was that the South Africa Baseball Federation has decided to adopt my batting school program.
