Dongguan finally has a state-of-the-art baseball field in the city proper. Beloved by Americans and popular all around the world, baseball has been regularly practiced by Dongguan Dragons Kids Baseball Club for some time. Now, with the opening of the first baseball field at the International School of Dongguan (ISD), the Dragons no longer need to travel all the way to Shatian Town each weekend. The ISD baseball field will be the Dragons’ new home, as well as, serve the school and local community.
On October 23, a grand ceremony was held at ISD, with over 300 guests who came to celebrate the official opening of the multi-purpose area, which includes a standard baseball field and two football pitches.
Retired New York Yankees baseball player, Felix Jose, attended the ceremony and enjoyed the field’s opening show with exhibition games and a friendly match between the school and a Hong Kong team. The Party Secretary of Nancheng District, Mr. Chen GuiMing, also joined the ceremony to witness this important event, as ISD’s concert band and students entertained guests with various tunes.
Look forward to competitive baseball and football games being held at the school and the local community taking advantage of ISD’s new sports fields.
