Completing the perfect season! Going undefeated and winning Western Japan International Schools’ Baseball Championship! Also a very special thanks to Co-Coach, Marist Alumni Ryoji Sakai. Who, 25 years ago, was the winning pitcher of another Bulldog Championship team…..that coached by myself! His enthusiasm, love and knowledge of the game was absolutely contagious for both the Marist Teams! Our teams were so immensely grateful for his presence at every practice and every game this year! Cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed his company and baseball chats throughout the season! An amazingly enjoyable experience. Also, special congratulations to both teams who had fantastic leadership from their captains. They are truly an amazing, hard working and respectful group of boys!!! I will really miss those grade 8 boys! They will always be champions in my heart!!! Thanks for a fantastic Baseball season!!!
