International Exchange Students Cheer for Kansai University's Baseball Team
Kansai University Baseball Club played against its Kwansei Gakuin University counterpart in the Kansai Student Baseball Spring Championship at the Koshien Stadium on May 3 and 4.
In the opening pitch ceremony, KU president Harushige Kusumi threw the first ball as the guest pitcher to the catcher Nobunari Oda (Faculty of Letters senior, and Kansai University Ice Skating Club member). The guest hitter was KG president Soichi Sugihara.
Ten international exchange students had an enjoyable time cheering for KU from the stands led by the energetic cheering squad, which included Thomas Chancelor, an exchange student from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Clad in a traditional school uniform, Chancelor made his debut as a member of the cheering squad that day.
