Chamberlin Sangang Ambassador of Harmony Baseball Academy. Medical laboratory scientist by profession chamberlin sangang was born in Cameroon. Father of 3 he lives in Bealeton,Virginia and works with the American red cross. He is a fan of soccer as every cameroonian, baseball is his passion today
I began playing baseball when I was three years old. Since falling in love with the game at that time, baseball has consumed the bulk of my life. I have played the game for over 20 years. After a five-year college career, I stepped away from the game. It didn’t take long to feel the need to get involved in baseball again. This time, it was as a coach. Coaching baseball is something I have a huge passion for and have been doing for over ten years now. I had so many opportunities presented to me as a player that I will forever be thankful for. Because I cannot thank everyone that helped me to achieve those things, I believe that the only way to thank those people is to pass it on to the younger generations. I don’t want to just pass on the knowledge for the game, I want to pass on the passion and the dreams that come along with the love for the game.
