IWAKUNI CITY, Japan - American and Japanese spectators watch a friendly baseball game during the Kizuna stadium grand opening in Iwakuni City, Japan, Nov. 4, 2017. The stadium is seen as more than just a sports complex for teams to train and play in. It is a hallmark of what the U.S.-Japan friendship has accomplished in Iwakuni City. Everything from the dogwood trees planted just outside to the name of the stadium itself – Kizuna, which means bond – represents the prosperous union between the two allies.
