Earlier today, in an effort to help support the development of middle school hard baseball in Japan, the Japan Amateur Baseball Association (JABA) announced the formation of the Japan Middle School Hard Baseball Council (日本中学硬式野球協議会).  The council will be responsible for putting together domestic tournaments, as well as organizing teams for international competition.  JABA managing director Masaru Ushir0 was also named chairman of the council.

Japan will also be participating in the 2010 AA World Baseball Championships taking place in Mexico later this year in August and former Yomiuri Giant head coach Yoshitaka Katori was selected to manage Japan.
