On October 29, 2019, Joel Tauber began Border-Ball: a 40-day pilgrimage along the U.S. – Mexico border. Tauber starts, each day, at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry in San Diego, California, and walks along the border wall before heading north two and a half miles to the Otay Mesa Detention Center. He is traveling there and back again each day – a seven mile journey that connects legal entry to the U.S. with the border wall and the detention center holding those who might be in the country without all legal permits.
Participate in Border-Ball by walking with Joel Tauber and by sharing your stories about baseball, immigration, and the United States. Here’s the walking and interviewing schedule:
