With the McHenry County Youth Sports Association tournament getting ready to start, teams from all over the world are starting to arrive in Crystal Lake.
The Japanese team arrived Wednesday morning at the Crystal Lake Holiday Inn. A group composed of MCYSA representatives, host families, Holiday Inn employees and curious onlookers welcomed the players, families and coaches as they exited their bus.
Japanese players were introduced to members of the families who will be taking them in during the 10-day tournament.
