TO GO WITH AFP STORY 'Japan-disaster-quake-tsunami-school-baseball' Harumi OzawaThis picture taken on April 28, 2011 shows Yuki Kikuchi (L), who is a member of the baseball club at Yamada High School, speaking in an interview after a training session in Yamada, Iwate prefecture. Kikuchi saw his hometown destroyed by the tsunami which devastated northeastern Japan on March 11, and the teenager thought his dream of playing baseball was gone. Now living in a school gymnasium with hundreds of other disaster victims, the 17-year-old believed his chance of making the national high school baseball tournament had been snatched away by huge waves that left Yamadamachi in ruins. But the teenager said his team was now determined to show the disaster had not destroyed their hopes of playing at the Koshien Stadium, Japan's biggest ball park where the legendary Babe Ruth played an exhibition game in 1934.
