John Fitzgerald at BaseballUnited.net Talks with Iran National Team Manager Toma Irokawa

A little over a month ago we wrote about Toma Irokawa taking over the reigns of the Iran National Baseball Team and a couple of days ago John Fitzgerald from Baseball United was able to get Irokawa on the phone for a short interview.

In the interview Irokawa talks about baseball in Iran, how he communicates with the players, and even mentions how many baseball fields there are in Iran (it was more than I expected although not many). He also touches on the youth of the country and a little bit about the West Asia Baseball Cup.

It is only six and a half minutes but well worth the listen.

Thanks to John for pointing this out to us.
