Russian national junior baseball team players and coaches know that American President George Bush is a baseball fan and made an unusual souvenir as a gift for him - a baseball outfit with the inscription "Russia".
As Michael McShane, one of the organizers of Russian national team's trip, the head of McShane Group company and American baseball enthusiast, told RIA Novosti, Russian juniors will have a chance to meet with George W. Bush this week Friday during their visit to the White House. It will happen just the very same day when the American President will fly to his Camp David retreat to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin, said McShane.
According to McShane, US baseball fans follow with interest how Russians play the game, thinking that each country that starts playing it, brings into it its own national features, thus enriching the game of baseball.

It has long been understood that the West has been trying to subject Russian borders to total control. We have not seen such activity even during the Cold War
