 The Diplomatic Corps held a ceremony at the Taj Restaurant on Thursday, August 19, in appreciation of their effort on the field during last month’s 40th Constitution Day Leadership Softball Tournament.

The team, dubbed the “Diplomats”, placed third in the seven-team softball tournament. It was represented by all four resident ambassadors and their staff, as well as several honorary consuls, and the Ministry of State staff.

The ceremony was attended by the Minister of State, Faustina Rehuher-Marugg, as well as the Ambassadors of the Republic of China-Taiwan, Japan, Australia, and the United States, as well as the Honorary Consul of India. All mentioned that it was their first time on the field in years, and agreed that the team should begin practicing for next year’s tournament.

The Minister of State toasted the team’s achievement. It was decided that the trophy will be shared amongst the embassies quarterly based on seniority, starting with the Embassy of the Republic of China-Taiwan.
