\u00a0 The Ridgefield Rays, Ridgefield Babe Ruth, and Bobby Valentine Sports Academy in Stamford have all joined together to facilitate a youth culture exchange for baseball in Ridgefield. Dan Corbin, one of the leaders of the program, explains \u201cit\u2019s for the Tsunami Relief Foundation in Japan. When we went over and saw just how devastated all these kids were, we knew we needed to help.\u201d The program brings together boys ages 12 to 15 from Japan, the Bronx, and Ridgefield to play and practice baseball. All of the children are provided lunch and the players from out of town are being housed by the families of the Ridgefield players. The camp runs all day and the campers were able to go watch a Yankees vs. Red Sox game and visit the 9\/11 Memorial together after a week of hard work. \u201cIt was touching,\u201d Corbin said, \u201ca lot of these kids, specifically the Japanese ones, experienced disaster and pain, and were able to connect with the 9\/11 survivor giving us the tour.\u201d Corbin said baseball brings all of these campers together.\u00a0 "These kids come from Ridgefield, Stamford, the Bronx, and Japan, so there\u2019s a lot of diversity. But even though a lot of these kids don\u2019t even speak the same language, on the field they\u2019re all communicating and working together.\u201d The campers were be divided into four teams and played in a six-game tournament on Aug. 15 and Aug. 16. They are scheduled to play today \u2014 Thursday, Aug. 17 \u2014 at 1:30 p.m., at both East Ridge and Governor Park. The games at both locations will occur simultaneously.
