SI JAPAN TRIP
Find out more about our Japan adventure!
The Scrap Yard Internationals 16U and 18U teams traveled to Tokyo, Japan in August of 2018 to play softball against the Tokyo Women’s College of Physical Education, watch Team USA play at the WBSC World Championships, and see the greater city of Tokyo! At the beginning the week and a half long trip, each SI squad played 2 games against TWCPE at their home field in a heat much similar to Texas. The athletes were greeted by an excited TWCPE team and spent the first
half hour learning names, asking questions, and taking selfies, and wrapped up each day with an entertaining hackey-sack and selfie session.
In addition to competing, SI visited the downtown city of Narita, traveled to the Tsukiji Fish Market, ate the local cuisine in Chiba, walked through prayer gardens and temples, spent the day at Tokyo Disney, and cheered on USA Softball during pool play competition.
