It was nice to see alumni and current students at the school on Sunday. The boys get together to play baseball and water polo at the school occasionally on weekends. The alumni managers, the girls in the photo, also come to enjoy the camaraderie. In the photo, current students are in the front row and alumni in the back rows.
The game ended up 7-6 and took 10 innings to complete. Baseball is a serious sport in Japan and the quality of this “pick-up” game is amazing. It looked like minor league baseball team practice! To beat the heat, they enjoyed a game of water polo in the SOIS pool and a lunch afterwards in a nearby restaurant. The group is facilitated by SIS activities coordinator, Mitsuhashi sensei.
