Peace Boat launched a campaign to support the committee by raising donations and collecting messages of support via Facebook in cooperation with other organizations active in supporting Ishinomaki.
While the team unfortunately lost their first game, their pledge for fair play, shouldering the burden of expectations from their hometown, and their high-spirited play in the game left an unforgettable impression on audiences throughout Japan. We would like to sincerely express our gratitude to the baseball team of the Ishinomaki Technical High School and all involved for their courage and inspiration.
