Kenjiro Nomura, a Japanese Olympic baseball player who played in the Olympic Games in Soul, Korea in 1988 and contributed towards winning the Silver Medal for Japan, is visiting Sri Lanka from 9th to 15th July.

During his stay here he is will conduct baseball clinics in Peradeniya University ground and Diyagama Baseball ground to Sri Lankan students.

Sri Lanka’s baseball players should benefit immensely from these clinics as Nomura is a former coach of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp which is Japanese professional baseball team.
His tour in Sri Lanka is covered by Japanese TV crew from Hiroshima Telecasting Co. Ltd and it will be telecasted on TV programme “Sports GENKIMARU”, ‘TEREBIHA’ and ‘Peace for Peace”.

Two JICA volunteers (JOCVs) are currently in Kandy and Galle to teach baseball to Sri Lankan students.
