Thank you to all the volunteers and guests who helped make it a wonderful event for Kaye Kaminishi. From wonderful videos to trivia games, a lot of good memories were made.
Wylie Waters won the 2021 Koichi (Kaye) Kaminishi Award.
Here's CTV New's coverage of the event:

We would like to recognize the hard work that the players, coaches and parents did to prepare for the 2022 Asahi Japan Tour trip.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions to Japan, the trip had to be postponed. Some players and families have chosen not to return as part of the 2023 team and we would like to thank them for all their contributions. They will be missed.

Inspired by the legacy of the Asahi Baseball team, for their skill, perseverance and accomplishments, it is our collective dream to bring back the Asahi Baseball Team to the Nikkei Community and Canada.
We believe in fair play, hard work and teamwork. We are a new club and are open to all, without regard to gender, ethnic origin or residency.
