Indonesia Ready For Asian Baseball Championship

INDONESIA – Having confirmed its place at the Asian Championship, the Indonesian national baseball team is going all out in its preparation.

Indonesian Baseball and Softball Federation (Perbasasi) president Gugun Yudinar said on Monday that coach Kazuto Nonaka received approval to spend an extra week in Japan ahead of the tournament, which runs July 31 to Aug. 4 in Tokyo and Sapporo.

“Perbasasi will send all 20 players and the coach to Japan on July 18, and the officials will leave five days after to save some money,” Gugun said on Monday.

Indonesia will train in Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture, which is a 40-minute drive from Tokyo. It will also play three local clubs in the run-up to the tournament.

The impetus for leaving early, Nonaka said last week, was to give the team more time to adapt to the Japanese summer, during which temperatures climb as high as 40 degrees Celsius. Leaving on July 23, as previously planned, would not leave the players enough time to adapt.

Training is already 10 days behind schedule, having just started last Wednesday because several players had to receive permission from their employers or schools.

Sending the team earlier raised the total cost for Perbasasi to Rp 400 million ($39,200), Rp 100 million more than its previous budget.

Gugan said federation officials themselves decided to make up the difference. “All Perbasasi officials have voluntarily chipped in that Rp 100 million, and we think it’s necessary for baseball development here,” he said.

Indonesia faces Thailand, the Philippines and the host nation in the first round, with only the winner advancing to play South Korea, China and Taiwan in Sapporo. The top six from the tournament qualify for the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, China.
