Comment from Jones

I deeply regret not being able to participate in All Euro's historical debut against the Japanese national team, and not being able to meet the wonderful and passionate fans of Japan. At first I was planning to participate as a member of All Euro, but as I will be leaving home for several months as a professional baseball player, I have decided to prioritize spending time with my family and my children attending school. I consider it an honor to be chosen as a member of Manager Janssen's team, and that I had the opportunity to wear the All Euro uniform.
I hope from the botm of my heart that the All Euro vs. Samurai Japan game will succeed. I want to watch the match results, and I anticipate that such wonderful initiatives as this will contribute to the internationalization of baseball.
