SOLATO Ehime Mandarin Pirates Baseball School

The SOLATO Ehime Mandarin Pirates Baseball School, sponsored by Taiyo Oil, was held in the indoor arena at Himegin Ground (Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture) on Saturday, March 19 2016.
While the look of today's sky wasn't the best, 78 elementary and junior high school pupils took part.  The training was about learning skills and techniques from players in the Ehime Mandarin Pilates, a team that won the coveted Shikoku Island League Plus trophy last season and, furthermore, shone as the number one team in Japan in the independent league. The children took part with great enthusiasm, taking in the specialist knowledge that was taught them.
Taiyo Oil will continue to present training sessions of this kind, in order to help foster children's interest in sports and development of a sound mind in a healthy body.
