EL SEGUNDO — A youth baseball team from Tokyo will play in a tournament in El Segundo next month, organizers announced Wednesday.

The Beach City Baseball Academy donated airline tickets to Tokyo Kitasuna to allow it to play in the eight-team Beach City Prospects U11 Tokyo Tournament, which will begin April 16.

The team had been scheduled to play in a tournament in Japan that was canceled because of the massive earthquake that struck the nation.

While in Southern California, the team will attend a Los Angeles Dodgers game and visit various landmarks.
