    Baseball continuing to blossom in Colombia

    Jhonier de Avila darted far to his left, fielded the ground ball and hurled it across the diamond so hard that it popped the first baseman's mitt. The shortstop picked up another one cleanly, this time with his backhand, and he whipped it to first in one motion. "Manos de seda! Mano de seda!" his teammates howled from the dugout. "Suavecitas, suavecitas. Vamos, vamos, Niño, vamos!"

    Ángela Díaz stood on a rock ledge above a creek called Caño Piedras and pointed out an unassuming olive-colored plant growing below. Macarenia clavigera, she said, is the key to the future of this remote region in central Colombia.
