 Tetsuo Imazawa, also known as "Hide" who "met, and appeared on TV program called paste" at the time of from this time had you come to support of baseball in Kenya from Japan.

 We had Hide always support baseball of Kenya, but, as well as support, Kenya came over this time as it was actually to want to see Kenya baseball with own eyes and had you be keenly aware of Kenya baseball in what you practiced with player.

 When Soichi Fujita of former WBC Japan National Team played an active part in professional baseball last time came to Kenya, you said on seeing player saying "body ability is high at all".
 In addition, we remember that we ate even if "it will be to how great player when environment was set because we can do it to here while environment is not regulated well".
 Solution to problem to fix practice environment takes time still more, but wants to go ahead one step of one step.

 We had you provide movement costs and meal of player from Hide this time.
Besides, we had you send five dozen balls from Japan to Kenya from Fujita.
In addition, Minowa who I am senior of the amateur baseball era, and works as player in Yokohama TODODAS.
