This is the second year for the project
As part of the trip, the kids will be bringing down baseball gear and school supplies to give to their Cuban counterparts.
Brandon Wentzell, 11, is one of the children from Nova Scotia who is going on the trip.
“I’m looking forward to seeing the kids, taking them all the baseball gear and the school supplies, and just seeing their faces when we give the baseball stuff to them,” he said, with a big smile on his face.
Cubans are renowned for their love of baseball. The country has produced many players in the majors.
This is the second year for the project. Last year, 34 Nova Scotian children took part.
This year, about 150 children from around the Maritimes and Winnipeg will be heading down to Cuba at different times.
To participate, each player pays $1,800 for the trip, all inclusive.
A new wrinkle to the project is that in the spring, a team from Cuba will be coming up to Nova Scotia.
