The 20th World Children's Baseball Fair 2010 officially kicked off on Saturday with the opening ceremony taking place at the Komazawa Olympic Park Baseball Ground. Sadaharu Oh was in attendance to say a few words. A prepared statement from US President Barack Obama was also read at the ceremony.
The kids attending the WCBF had a chance to watch the WUBC game between Japan and China on Saturday night. They had a section along both the first and third base sides and appeared to be quite happy chasing down fouls balls hit into the stands.
