Nick Klein, an employee of the Foundation to Support Animal Protection and writer of The Informed Vegan blog, is sponsoring a team of seven- to nine-year-old boys in the Kennewick National youth baseball league. Klein, a former Kennewick little leaguer himself, told the Tri-City Herald that he was intrigued to see what would happen if he sponsored a team. “I knew it would be an interesting thing for people, especially in a town like Kennewick, where a lot of people don’t even know what a vegan is. It would get people talking,” he says. The Informed Vegan team recently played, and defeated, a Dairy Queen-sponsored team.
