The   indignities endured by our families, relatives and friends in World War II are but memories of the distant past but does serve as the spark that keeps the legacy of AJA baseball here on Kauai alive and well.  The success of our association is largely due to the very committed and dedicated officials who year after year embrace the perpetuation of this very important tradition.  We want our players to be proud of our Japanese heritage but to appreciate who we are as citizens of this wonderful   country and for the ability to participate together as friends with a common thread.  Yet through our organization we have to remember the time honored values of respect, honor and dignity so valuable to our cultural heritage.  We   have evolved into a program which enhances relationships through friendly competition amongst players and coaches which has brought our island community closer
