Little League Museum adopts Nigerian’s schoolboy paper glove

The World of Little League Museum has adopted a handcrafted glove by a Nigerian schoolboy in Ekiti State state as a memorabilia.

The nine-year-old Philip Adeeri Fagbenro from Ekiti State has handcrafted a baseball glove made up of cardboard and copper wires. The boy plays for Nigerian Little League.

Lance Van Auken, the vice president and executive director of the World of Little League Museum, said one of his Facebook friends shared a picture of Philip with the homemade glove, and after getting in touch with Philip’s coach, he struck a deal to have the gear displayed as the centrepiece of a museum exhibit in Williamsport.
