Students take on the role of a country trying to land a Major League baseball expansion franchise.
Students must research the nation and use past and present-day information to develop plans for the team's name, location, stadium, etc. Students must create a presentation to convince the commissioner (teacher) to choose their nation.
This project is currently set up for Africa but could be easily modified to cover any part of the world. The project could also be easily modified for a different sport as well. Includes teaching notes.
