Hello and welcome to the West Tokyo Dodgers Baseball Team or WTD Meet Up Group. WTD has 4 teams at different levels in Tokyo. This site you are looking at presently is for our younger players, and so are from the ages of 7 to 12 years old, or grades 1 to 6.

For older youth players (ages 13 to 15yrs.) please go to another meet up group which you can go to by clicking here: WTD Oaks Level Team   We also have a casual adult team as well, located here:  WTD Adults

The Dodgers teams are bilingual with our WTD younger teams (Shamrocks & Maples levels) being virtually all-English, but with many bilingual players from many other countries too. The WTD (Oak Level) is more a true mix of both Japanese and English speakers. The adult team has lots of Japanese players that speak English and is much more casual for those that must focus on their jobs. 

The West Tokyo Dodgers is the only serious private English speaking group of baseball teams to be found in Japan for the international community, as other such teams are only for individual school related activities or are part of US Military Base Teams.

Therefore our year round program means we have the most talented level of play for the international community. We also have the only youth teams that go head-to-head with the extremely strong all-Japanese teams that practice year round too. The younger teams practice at the American School in Japan on Sundays in Chofu-shi, Tokyo,  but please contact us first about your showing up due to security.

The youth teams have a practice uniform that players need to buy at a local store, as all reasonably large sporting goods stores carry this uniform, as it is standard for all teams here in Japan. Here is a picture of the team version that has some navy blue parts you need to choose, so have a look before you buy anything: WTD Practice Uniform

Youth players also need a pair of of "all-black spikes" baseball shoes & a set of "all-white non-spike" baseball shoes. Here linked below is a store that carries such gear and much more, yet you can find most of what you need at any large sporting goods retailer: Baseman
