A handcrafted glove by a Nigerian schoolboy in Ekiti State has been adopted as a memorabilia by the World of Little League Museum in the United States.

The baseball glove made up of cardboard and copper wires was the handiwork of nine-year-old Philip Adeeri Fagbenro, who plays for Ekiti Kete, a 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 centerpiece of a museum exhibit in Williamsport.
