2023 San Mateo Sister City Baseball Exchange Team
We are the 2023 San Mateo-Toyonaka All-Star Baseball Team.
Our sister city baseball exchange program started in 1979 and every four years, we have the privilege of sending 20 young baseball players to our Sister City in Toyonaka, Japan for a once in a lifetime experience. The team, consisting of twenty ball players, ages 10-12, chosen through a rigorous tryout process, will get to experience many facets of Japanese culture firsthand, play competitive baseball against our sister city's All-Star teams, homestay for a week with a Japanese family, and make friends that can last a lifetime.
This year marks the 60th Anniversary of San Mateo's relationship with Toyonaka, Japan.
We want to provide this experience to any child who can make our team, so we also try and raise 100% of the funds for the cost of the trip, to not exclude those families who may not otherwise be able to send their child.
So, we need your help to cover plane tickets, train travel, uniforms, meals, and other expenses that make this trip possible.
The San Mateo Sister City Association is 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.
