Let's get Kyle to Taiwan!

Personal message

Hi, My name is Kyle Griebenow, and I live in Cape Town, South Africa.

I'm 12 years old, and being chosen to represent South Africa at the 2022 U12 Baseball World Cup being held in Taiwan next month is a dream come true!

The team and I have been training hard, sometimes 5 times a week, getting us ready to play against the toughest ballplayers in the world. We're excited to be facing Panamar, Italy, Venezuela, Mexico and the current World Champions, Chinese Taipei, in our opening round! 

I've been playing baseball since I was 6 years old. In 2019 I was selected, as a U10 player, to be part of the Elite Training Programme which prepares players for International participation. Now that I qualify to be part of the travelling squad, I'm looking forward to playing baseball at the hightest level, together with my fellow teammates!

Baseball is a self-funded sport in South Africa, meaning players need to pay their own way in order to participate in tournaments. Although the trip is subsidised, we still need to raise R25 000 each towards flights, accommodation, kit, uniform, and all the essentials needed.

My family has very little time in which to raise this money, so I'd be grateful to anyone who would like to help get me to Taiwan. Any and all donations, no matter how small, will go a long way in helping me to realise my dream! All games will be streamed, so please support us - I'll do my best to make you proud!
