Saudi Arabia team replaces Uganda for Little League World Series

A youth baseball team from Saudi Arabia has received a spot in the Little League World Series after the squad from Uganda was denied a visa to the United States.

The Arabian-American team lost last month to the Rev. John Foundation team from Kampala, which won the Little League’s Middle East and Africa region and advanced to the World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

However, the U.S. State Department last week said that some visa applications for the Ugandan players included birth certificates and records altered to make players appear younger.

Youths age 11 or 12 as of April 30 can participate in the Little League World Series.
