Chairman of Hokkaido High School Baseball Federation, Naoki ENDO
“In 2023, the representatives of southern and northern Hokkaido will compete in the Summer Koshien Tournament at the new world-class stadium, ES CON FIELD HOKKAIDO. I believe that this will be a great opportunity for high school baseball players to showcase the results of their hard work in front of a large audience, as well as to experience the world of professional baseball and further enhance their passion for baseball. I would like to express my gratitude to the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters baseball team for their generous support for various tournaments organized by the Hokkaido High School Baseball Federation during the pandemic, for sending players to teach at our "Kids Festa" baseball school for children from preschool and elementary school, and for preparing this inspiring opportunity for high school baseball players.”
Ken MAEZAWA, Board of Directors of the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters
“I am very happy that the high school baseball players of Hokkaido will be able to play at ES CON FIELD HOKKAIDO in its memorable opening year of 2023. This is something that I have envisioned since 2015, when the new stadium project was launched, and it stirs emotions to think that it will finally come to life. The entire staff will do their utmost to prepare for the opening of the stadium just like the high school baseball players do so for every moment of their game. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the Hokkaido High School Baseball Federation and Asahi Shimbun for their flexible support and efforts in making this event possible.
