As the excitement after the “USA vs Japan All-Star Series 2018” continued, the Japan Softball Women’s TOP Team participated in the “2nd Within Japan Enhanced Training Camp” at Azuma Baseball stadium (Fukushima City) from 24 - 27 June 2018.

Many softball fans visited the stadium to watch the high standard training by the National Team even though it was weekday.

During the training, Governor Mr. Uchibori also visited the stadium to cheer on the players and encouraged the team for the World Championship that will begin from 2 August.

In addition, the National Players, Ms. Yukari Hamamura, Ms. Natsuko Sugama and Ms. Nozomi Nagasaki, also graced the event “Fukushima Baseball/Softball Beyond2020 Ball Park Picnic” and interacted with the children through games such as catchball and scissors-paper-stone.

During this period from the competition to the training camp, with the support of “All Fukushima” to welcome the players, the players enjoyed thoroughly the cuisine made from Fukushima’s local produce and the famous onsen in Fukushima, Tsuchiyu Onsen.
