Go Go Hebiura!!--Shimokita Baseball Champions

Early last spring the children of Hebiura Elementary School featured in a special Keitai Cinema production entitled Weed of the Sea. This short movie may be downloaded from the Keitai Cinema section of the sidebar. The movie closed with the explanation that the school sold the 650kg of seaweed they gathered in order to buy new uniforms for the baseball team. A couple of weeks ago the Hebiura baseball team wore its new baseball uniforms to a magnificent victory in the Shimokita baseball tournament involving twenty-four elementary schools. I should point out that there are only thirty-three students at Hebiura Elementary School. As may be seen in the photo above, seventeen of them are on the baseball team——literally over half the school.
