31st Japanese American Association Foreign Minister Cup Nanshiki Baseball Tournament 2016

The nanshiki baseball team I play on, the Brooklyn Dumbos, is in the playoffs.
(Nanshiki means soft type. We use a sturdy rubber ball, not the conventional hardball.)
The first round (quarter final) is on Sunday, August 7 at 8 a.m. at Field 6 in North Meadow in Central Park (by subway: 96th St on the B or C; 96th St on the 6). We play last year's champions, the New York Radiators.
The games are 7 innings with a 2-hour time limit, so it's baseball with restrictions (due to limited field permit availability) but it's a pretty competitive league with some former pros, top division college players, and players who made it to Koshien, the high school tournament that is in many ways a bigger deal than pro ball in Japan.
If you enjoy baseball, please stop by!
