Konichiwa! こんにちは
We are the 2017 San Mateo-Toyonaka All-Star Baseball Team.

Our sister city baseball exchange program started in 1979 and this year, we have the privilege of hosting 20 young baseball players from our Sister City,  Toyonaka, Japan, for a once in a life time experience.
In August, our team, consisting of twenty 11 and 12 year old players, will play competitive baseball against our sister city's All-Star team, as well as showing them what is great about our city and country.  Some families will also be hosting players in a homestay capacity for a week.

We want to provide this experience to any child who can possibly make our team, so we also try and raise 100% of the funds for the program. 
So, we need your help to cover uniforms, team gifts, hosted meals, and other expenses that make this experience possible.

We are also a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so your donation is tax deductible.

Anything helps! Please donate to keep this wonderful experience alive and strong for future generations of children.

Many thanks.
