Fans in Iraq

As some of you may already be aware, the Iraqi National Baseball team is about to receive some needed equipment to help them on their way towards a future Olympic birth. They are still only a ragtag bunch, but have a passion for the game we Americans can appreciate. They are getting balls, bats, shoes... you name it. They are even getting their own uniforms, donated by a Seattle manufacturer, to wear. No longer do they have to share a single jersey.

To even add more spice to the story, the uniforms will be blue instead of the colors of the national flag.
"I was quite prepared to design something based on the green, red and black that's in the Iraqi flag, but they said no, They wanted a blue jersey," recalled Cohen. "I think it's because someone (there) is a Dodgers fan."
We've got fans all across the world. Read a little about it here.
