TOKYO (June 29, 2015) — This in-depth report detailed the return of the Sendai 89ers to the bj-league after the March 11, 2011, disasters that caused widespread destruction to northern Japan.

In my report just under seven months later, I wrote: “Sendai and Miyagi Prefecture have begun the process of rebuilding, a task that will probably take decades. In this time, the 89ers and other sports team will play a role in giving people a sense of normalcy in their daily lives.”
