The Baser's are considering the 2nd week (15U?). We host Team Japan the 1st week. Just wondering how that would all work as we would need a little bit of time to get the house back in order/prepare for another group of boys (clean, laundry & FOOD!) after we say good-bye to our Japan group. We host 2 or 3 players. MCYSA should have our contact info (we've hosted Team Japan for years) but if not, let me know. Rob Baser
