The City of Nishinomiya announced on Friday that they will be holding a ceremony at Koshien Stadium on 2/25 in order to present players that made it to the Spring and Summer Koshien Tournaments in 1995 and 1996 with commemorative souvenirs.

Players have been getting souvenirs for making it to the Koshien Tournaments since 1960.  But souvenirs were not handed out at three Koshien Tournaments in 1995 and 1996 because of the Great Hanshin Earthquake in 1995.

2,077 players and coaches from 93 high schools will be presented with various souvenirs.  Only about 100 players and coaches from 5 Hyogo high schools are expected to attend the ceremonies on 2/25; the rest of the souvenirs will be mailed out.
