Mizuno Baseball Dream Cup
Mizuno is holding a youth baseball tournament built on the following principle: “Don’t get angry at failure and everyone helps each other.”
In sports, kids are sometimes subjected to coaching that is too harsh in the interest of improving their ability. In this tournament, however, our hope is to have as many children as possible experience the joy of simply playing baseball.
That’s why, during the games, coaches and parents/guardians are not allowed to get angry at the kids. If they do, they get shown a yellow card.
Also, under normal baseball rules, players who have been substituted cannot then rejoin the game. In the Mizuno Baseball Dream Cup, however, we have created a rule to allow players who have been substituted to rejoin the game afterwards, so that as many kids as possible can take part. In addition, kids can take part even if they aren’t wearing the right uniform, which makes it easy even for kids who have never even played baseball before to join in. Teams that don’t have the necessary equipment can also borrow what they need from Mizuno.
Mizuno is running such initiatives with the hope of helping as many kids as possible to enjoy sports with peace of mind and supporting their healthy development.
