The Philippine Blu Boys leave for Japan Tuesday to take part in the Asian Men’s Softball Championship set October 25-28 in Miimi City, Okayama.

The 21-man national contingent is headed by delegation head and Amateur Softball Association-Philippines operations manager Jun Veloso and is made up of the team that won the 2011 Southeast Asian Games in sweeping fashion.

The short but tough tournament also serves as the Asian qualifier for the 2013 World Men’s Championship scheduled March in New Zealand, according to Veloso during Friday’s SCOOP sa Kamayan session at the Kamayan Restaurant-Padre Faura.
