{UAH} VIDEO: The Chinese Taipei and Uganda Little Leaguers turned a postgame handshake line into a hug fest

If all games and all teams in Uganda sports were as untribal-based as this American made of this Baseball team Uganda would indeed be a powerhouse of super-athletes in Africa and among the world's best. This team has nearly every Uganda ethnicity in it and I was amazed to know one of them in an Abim Labwor from K'moja. Watch the video.

VIDEO: The Chinese Taipei and Uganda Little Leaguers turned a postgame handshake line into a hug fest

As the international division of the Little League World Series continues to progress, even the best stories must come to an end. Such was the case with the plucky squad from Uganda, which was eliminated with a loss at the hands of perennial power Chinese Taipei. That's when the tradition of the postgame handshake kicked off, with a bit of a twist.

Actually, it was more than a bit of a twist.The Chinese Taipei players and their Ugandan counterparts apparently had so much respect for one another that they eschewed with traditional handshakes in favor of full on hugs.

The scene was one of the more touching ones at a tournament that produces plenty of emotional high points each year. The young athletes from Kampala, Uganda, are just the second group to play at the Little League World Series from the African country. Many have been competing in baseball for just two years, yet they still knocked off the Dominican Republic in their first game before eventually running up against overpowering squads from Venezuela and Chinese Taipei.

They may not have had the answers for more experienced teams from South America and Asia, but they did have the most touching, genuine moment of the series so far.

"But this I know, UPC believed and still believes in
very high education. We can call Obote all bad names we have, but the bottom line remains that he got more scholarships for Buganda than all previous Uganda leaders combined. That includes Sir Edward Mutesa, President Lule, President Binayisa, up to and into Ssabasajja Mutebi. Who all happen to be Baganda leaders." Mulindwa
