Projet Pilote LBM St-Jean / LBAVR – Balles Kenko au Moustique B le 16 Mai


Le Baseball Mineur de St-Jean s’est porté volontaire auprès de la LBAVR pour effectuer un essai des balles Kenko lors de 2 matchs, le 16 Mai lors de notre weekend d’ouverture au Parc Multisports Bleury du secteur Iberville:

9h00 au terrain Landry

11h00 au terrain Lavoie

Ces balles sont principalement utilisées au Japon, elles ont comme particularité d’être en caoutchouc compressible. Elles sont de grandeur et de poids équivalent aux balles régulières.

Le but du pilote sera d’évaluer l’impact sur le jeu (sécurité, rebonds, distance de frappe, impact sur les lanceurs, etc) de cette balle aux caractéristiques différentes aux balles traditionnelles. Les résultats du pilote seront présentés à la LBAVR cet été.

Kenko Air Safety Baseball™

More than 90 percent of Japanese children play with a high performance ball constructed with a durable rubber cover and an air cushion center. Nagase Kenko Corporation (NKC) is far and away the industry leader, holding a market share of more than 60%. In the seventy years it has been manufacturing this product – over six billion balls have been sold – without a single serious injury.
The Kenko Air Safety Baseball™ compresses upon impact to absorb shocks and reduce injury. The surface features aerodynamicly-designed surface and a raised seam to simulate the characteristics, flight and bounce of a regulation baseball. Available in three sizes and weights to meet the needs of younger children and to facilitate their use in pitching machines, the Kenko baseball is the official licensed baseball of International Baseball Federation National Programs and many other youth programs around the world.The Kenko Air Safety Baseball™ is the official youth baseball for the International Baseball Association (IBA), Confederacion Panamericana de Beisbol (COPABE), Mexican (FEMEBA) and Brazilian Youth Baseball, Africa Baseball and Softball Association (ABSA), Baseball Federation of Asia (BAF) and the Victorian Baseball Association of Australia.

The Kenko ball has also been adopted for use by youth baseball associations in Brazil, Mexico, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Venezula as well as by Pony League, the T-ball association, a high school league in the Philippines, and by colleges in Taiwan.
