On September 18th, we met with a great group of kids and their fabulous coaches from the Feng Tai Experimental School in Beijing for baseball and a great dinner afterwards. This group couldn’t have been nicer to us. On the baseball front, their stadium is absolutely gorgeous — better than any I’ve seen in the U.S. (although I haven’t been to Williamsport yet), and the players were serious and very good. Afterwards, they took us to a local Chinese restaurant, and we had a feast. It was terrific to see our two children talking to and having fun with these terrific young athletes in Beijing!

We really appreciate the kindness and hospitality of this team, and had a fabulous time. We wish them all the best going forward, and they made our visit to Beijing very special!
