May chikka atang lumabas na maglalaro daw ang Philippine Little League sa Smokey Mountain na dating garbage dump sa tondo. Ito ay ayon kay Jolly Gomez na president ng Little League Philippines na binesa noong Biyernes April 3, 2009. Hindi naman lahat ng games ay gagawin doon, syempre may venue din sa Rizal Park na isa rin kilalang pasyalan sa pinas.
Sabi nga daw ni Gomez yung ibang games sa dating garbage dumpsite sa tondo na naging simbulo ng kahirapan sa Pilipinas pero ngayon ay kino-convert sa isang public park.
Limang (5) team ang mag-rerepresent sa Manila, at karamihan dito ay manglalaro galing sa kilalalang-kilala ng buong mundo na Smokey Mountain and iba pang lugar na slum area sa tondo.
“This will be the biggest Philippine Series ever in terms of teams participating,” Gomez said during the Scoop sa Kamayan-Padre Faura. “It goes to show that the Little League program, the largest mass-based, grassroots-oriented youth development program in the world, has come of age here.”
Manila, through Mayor Alfredo Lim and Masco chairman Niño dela Cruz, will be hosting some 1,300 players in boys’ baseballs and girls’ softballs.
So kung feel mong mamasyal, manood o maglaro ng softball or baseball – tara na sa smokey mountain ng tondo!!
