9th annual Springfield Isesaki softball exchange

An all-star men’s fast pitch softball team traveled from our sister city Isesaki, Japan, to play a series of friendly games with local Springfield teams at Killian Sport Complex.

The Isesaki softball exchange is coordinated through a partnership between the Sister Cities Association, the Springfield Amateur Softball Association (ASA) and the Springfield-Greene County Park Board. Players on this exchange and previous trips travel at their own expense. Below are photos of the opening game against Springfield-Greene County Park Board Men’s Fast Pitch league all-stars on Friday, June 29, 2012 in Killian Softball Complex.
