MLB scouts for African baseball stars

African players are hoping to hit the big time, as Major League Baseball (MLB) launches a talent hunt in the continent.

The BBC spent time with one young man hoping to make it to the MLB’s “Elite Africa” training camp taking place in Johannesburg later this year.
