Mobara, Japan is a Sister City to Salisbury, South Australia, our landlords.
After a few years of negotiations, Visits to play games between the Mobara and Northern Districts junior teams, started.
Between 2005 and 2008, Mobara visited us in March, at the end of our season and before their season started. Our junior team playing as the Salisbury City Reds travelled to Mobara in the July, for matches.
This continued until the earthquake and Tsunami forced the cancelation of or trip at the last minute.
Talks have been recently conducted to see if these visits can resume.
Our local players, coaches and parents learnt a lot about Japanese Culture. Thankfully also picked up a lot of tips on baseball.
