We are extremely honored and proud to participate in this event for 10 consecutive years since the very first tournament. It is a wonderful event filled with the hospitality of everyone in Hong Kong and we're looking forward to joining it every year.
Most of our players are playing rubber ball baseball in different teams back in Japan and gather at the time of overseas expedition to hardball baseball. This time it will be the 20th overseas expedition of Far East Bloomers. We have played baseball in the US, Canada, Australia, and Guam but Hong Kong is where we visited and played most often.
We would like to enjoy baseball quite well this time, too!
