¡One Proud Béisbol Mom!
Indiana host mom with exchange student sons from Germany and Spain at high school baseball game

America's favorite pastime also Raul's

Raul has been playing junior varsity baseball at Beech Grove this spring. In fact, he likes baseball so much that his family is looking for a school in Madrid that offers baseball, so that he can continue with the sport after he gets home. What is most impressive is that he has also been able to keep his grades up—even recently receiving an academic award.

When it came time to celebrate his birthday, we stuck with the baseball theme, packing Raul and his German double placement brother Nis in the car for a trip to Louisville. Our destination: the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. Like the exchange year itself, it was an absolute home run!
