Auntie Baseball
Today, we visit a Little League baseball team in Osaka. It boasts a whopping 140 members and is a powerhouse in Japan's Little Leagues. The team's founder, Tanahara Yasuko, is in her 80s but she's still in the game. Yasuko has been coaching for 50 years. Social values have changed, especially about raising children. Yasuko often questions her methods, but her philosophy stays the same. Auntie Baseball and the kids. We watched the Little-leaguers play... and grow. (This program was broadcast on October 4, 2022.)
