Miyagi students attend baseball clinic in Tokyo  

Thursday’s Mainichi reported on a baseball clinic for junior high school students that was held in Tokyo in late July, noting that some 40 students from Miyagi Prefecture took part in the four-day program and former major league player Hisanori Takahashi was one of the instructors. Noting that many school fields in the devastated communities of Tohoku are still occupied by temporary housing, making it difficult for students to practice baseball, the article said the participants were very pleased with the program. The paper added that Ambassador Kennedy offered words of encouragement to the students when they visited the U.S. Embassy as part of the program.
