The Czech Republic is the first European nation to host the Men's World Softball Championship which is taking place from June 13-23. The sport has been played in the country for decades thanks to the tireless efforts of one man, Ales Hrabe. This 91-year-old's passion for softball helped overcome a lack of equipment in the 1960s and opposition by state officials in the former communist country.
