Photographer's Note

A shot I took at a baseball game of the Criollitos de Venezuela baseball league. The Criollitos de Venezuela is a baseball training program for kids in which many Major League celebrities, such as Omar Vizquel, learnt to play. This program was designed to promote the sport among the poor kids. Currently, there are also kickingball, soccer, and basketball programs. It is a result of almost 100% voluntary work. Trainers, coaches pay their own expenses.

From a page on the criollitos:

"It was born with baseball, but it is not a baseball academy. It's main objective is to form good citizens through sport practiced in an organized manner."

I took the shot through a fence, so it was difficult to find a good angle. PP: I increased contrast, cropped and resized.
