This annual Japan-Boston Baseball Exchange is spon- sored by the Boston Red Sox Foundation. The coaches for the NEAA Boys Team will be Ralph Martignetti and Frank Iudiciani. In its inauguration five years ago, the Japanese boys and their coaches trav- elled to Boston; the following year, Japan was the host of this Baseball Exchange and in its third year, the Japanese boys were back in town. However, the devastating Tsunami prevented the Exchange from taking place in Japan, so in its fourth year, the tournament once again took place in Boston. Becatise Fenway Park is celebrating its Centen- nial this year, the Red Sox Foundation decided that Boston should once again be the host of this Exchange this year. The Japanese boys will be competing against other Boston neighborhood youth teams during their visit, but the game against our NEAA boys includes the unique annual post- game "dunk in the Mirabella Pool!" This game is free and all are welcome to attend. We hope to see you on Thursday, August 2 "d at Puopolo Park on Commercial Street from 9:00 am to 11:00 am for this wonderful annual traditionl Happy 117 th Anniversary KIWANIS CLUB OF EAST BOSTON Ed Coletta, President P.O.
