Introduction of AFAB


   SHINYA TOMONARI :
 The AFAB organizer
   Ex-manager of Ghana
   national baseball team
    "I have organized the Association for Friends of African Baseball to help our friendships and relationships with Africa through playing baseball since I happened to be the very first manager of Ghana national baseball team.

The name was inspired by the Commissioner of African Baseball Association. After the Ghana team had lost in the preliminary match held in Johannesburg for Sydney Olympics, September 1999, I had received a letter from him. He asked me to establish the FRIEND OF AFRICAN BASEBALL to keep the contribution to the baseball in Africa after I came back to Japan. So that's how AFAB was born."
