The sporting event ‘Dale!, Dale!’ unites border residents

Residents of Ciudad Juárez and neighboring cities in Texas and New Mexico came together on Friday to transform the border between Sunland Park and Ciudad Juárez into a field of baseball, in an event called “Dale!, Dale!” which aimed to show that borders can also be lived and enjoyed.

The event, organized by the civil association Sister City Association of Garden Grove, the office of the Municipality of Juárez in the United States, and the Special and Transitional Commission of Binational Cities, brought together residents from both sides of the border to participate in throwing balls from one side to the other as a way of experiencing unity and solidarity between the communities.

Participants, including students from the Orientarte Youth Promotion Center and the Autonomous University of Ciudad Juárez, gathered near the border wall, surrounded by the hills and the Rio Grande, to emphasize the idea of a borderless community and to promote friendship and understanding between the two countries.

Juan Acevedo, representative of the Municipal Government in the United States, highlighted the importance of events like “Dale!, Dale!” in showcasing the positive aspects of the border region and the relationship between Mexico and the United States.

The event concluded with the singing of the national anthems of Mexico and the United States, followed by a lively baseball game enjoyed by all participants. Tania Maldonado, coordinator of the Special and Transitional Commission of Binational Cities, emphasized the significance of bringing students from both sides of the border together in a spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie.

As the participants dispersed, they left behind a powerful message that borders do not have to be barriers, but rather can serve as bridges for connection and collaboration between neighboring communities. This event exemplified the potential for mutual understanding and cooperation between Mexico and the United States, beyond politics and physical boundaries.
