Not everyone can play soccer. All it takes is one kid who enjoys baseball more than (or as much as) soccer. If they can establish any foundation, it's an asset for the Nationals
Exactly.  Look, basketball is probably the third most popular sport in Brazil (after futbol and volleyball).  But they have at least four or so players in the NBA (Barbosa, Tiago Splitter, Nene, Varejao).  So kids are interested in and successful in other sports there.
