The Dutch baseballers have a shortage of baseball equipment. America sends a complete kit to 20 clubs. SHOTS: - in the harbour of Rotterdam a ship lies by the quay; harbour workers unload the cargo: they drive the large boxes across the quay with large lorries and hoist the boxes into a warehouse; - the crates are unpacked; the content is inspected (uniforms, masks, shoes, balls, bats); - the American ambassador, dr. H. Baruch, hands everything over to the association executive in the Ajax stadium; - Baruch signs a ball; - shots of the match Haarlem - Amsterdam (7-3).
