The game was very exciting because they showed high level skills especially pitching and fielding.
We thought we attracted a lot of spectators in and around game village at Aligegeo.
On 30th June, we also did promotion program. Softball and baseball is new sports for Solomon Islander except Honiara people. Therefore we wanted to give experience to play softball and baseball.
Our promotion program did demonstration of throwing, catching and batting. After demonstration the spectators tried batting. A lot of people participated in our program. In additional we wanted to include children so we prepared shooting game. Children made long line. We think our promotion program succeeded.
Now we got some good result. Three province, Malaita, Western Rennell Bellona, are interested in softball and baseball. We will visit these three province and introduce softball at schools.
