CLARKS HARBOUR -Katelyn Ross will soon get the opportunity to help others doing what she loves the most ...playing baseball.

The 13-year-old from Clarks Harbour will be travelling to Cuba as a part of the Good Will Tour in February and will get a chance to play ball with the local children in Varadero.

“I’m so excited,” said Ross.  “It is going to be a great opportunity to make new friends that have the same interest as me from another country.” 

The tour will include baseball games, clinics, and a school visit.

Ross is looking forward to playing baseball with children in Cuba.

She has played with the Clark’s Harbour Foggies for nine years.

“I live and breathe baseball,” she said.

She is also bringing down as much baseball equipment as she can to donate to children in Cuba.

She is fundraising for the trip and accepting donations of new and gently used equipment as well as school supplies.

Her family’s backyard is full of refundable bottles as one of her fundraisers and she plans to hold a BBQ at the Sobey’s in Barrington on Oct. 11.

In the meantime she is training hard to represent Canada for the trip.

This winter she will be a part of Bridgewater’s winterball to help with training.

“Girls playing baseball is not new in Nova Scotia but it is new in Cuba and this will be a great experience for me to be a part of.”
