SOMETIMES YOU START to think you're Ronald McDonald with a fungo bat," Rick Dell says.
It's Family Day at the ballpark, and while Dell and his staff have tried to organize some afternoon entertainment, he's already disappointed. Dell, Major League Baseball's director of baseball development in Asia, brought the teenager here to the MLB Development Center in Zhu's hometown of Wuxi, an ancient city on the Yangtze River fast becoming entangled in the sprawl of Shanghai, some 80 miles away.

"SOMETIMES YOU START to think you're Ronald McDonald with a fungo bat," Rick Dell says.
It's Family Day at the ballpark, and while Dell and his staff have tried to organize some afternoon entertainment, he's already disappointed. Dell, Major League Baseball's director of baseball development in Asia, brought the teenager here to the MLB Development Center in Zhu's hometown of Wuxi, an ancient city on the Yangtze River fast becoming entangled in the sprawl of Shanghai, some 80 miles away. On a map of China in Dell's Beijing office, Wuxi is just a dot in a constellation of other dots that make up China's baseball galaxy. The points on the map, from Xinjiang in the far west to Fujian in the remote south, mark every place baseball exists in the country, including expatriate little leagues and MLB's own youth camps. These are the places Dell and his staff scour, offering the best young players the chance to enroll at the two-year-old Development Center. Dell hand-picked every player here - all 37 of them - and he invented Soldier's nickname, as well as the sobriquets for "Shoeshine" and "Wanger" and "Bernie" and everyone else, which aren't nicknames as much as they are placeholders for Chinese names that Dell can't pronounce. His efforts have earned him a nickname of his own: A colleague calls him "China's Mr. Baseball. "We're not trying to match the NBA in 15 minutes," Dell says. "Remember, the NBA's been here 20, 25 years. Any mention of the recently retired Houston Rockets center elicits exasperated sighs from Dell and his colleagues. Dell touches on this point over breakfast at a DoubleTree by Hilton, one of the sleek luxury hotels that have sprung up around interior China, even in Wuxi's otherwise barren New District. "We may not get that player we're talking about during my time here in China," he says. Enrollees at the Development Center have their educations, equipment and housing paid for - a real gift, Dell emphasizes, for players from poverty-stricken provinces like Qinghai or Gansu. The fact is, these young hopefuls are drawing on more than just talent and hard work. They are often, quite literally, hungry. "These kids are already better off than they were, and they'll be better off when they leave," Dell says. Dell watches a parent skitter a ball a few feet along the ground following a swing that appeared to crack the man's back. "It's so weird," he says. "I'll be very surprised if we don't have a couple of kids out of this group that would be interesting to somebody in two years," Dell says. But even the incurable optimist can't ignore the odds. "I already know that 99.9 percent of these kids are never going to play in the major leagues," he says at one point.
