Baseball is played the same everywhere.

The rules are the same. The size of the ball field and equipment is the same. The length of the game can extend in close games or be called off because of weather.

Some games are played in massive stadiums with thousands of spectators, night lights, press boxes and entertainment. Other games are played on simple fields like this with chain link fences keeping spectators off the field and concession stands selling soft drinks and plantain chips.

This umpire calls the game as he sees it and there is no room for protest, no instant replay, no second guessing.

No one cares about skin color or political philosophies.

What counts on this field, is how well you hit the ball, catch the ball, throw the ball, help your team win the game.
