Reviewing the field - Chuugoku/Shikoku floating bid Yonago Kita ( High School ) On 2015-3-20 Goro Shigeno wrote:
Yonago Kita perhaps was the beneficiary of circumstance. They were the best candidate from the Chuugoku region, but in any other year Meitoku Gijyuku would have taken the floating bid. Things is, it is this year and Meitoku got that bid last year.

April 14th Iwata v Valdes - Oh to be in Nagoya ( Tiger Tails ) Tigers clean up is still not firing and the time that something needs to be done about this is rapidly approaching. With Fukudome, Umeno and Nishioka top for driving in RBIs one can only call Tigers batting lightweight. However, the issue for this game was the perennial one that Japanese baseball managers have; not using your star closer in the top of the ninth in a tied away game. Wada is not immune to this and once again his failure to switch his pitcher cost the Tigers the game. Wada has discovered that using your closer in home games is good but doesn't seem able to make the mental jump to include away games. In a way it is also harmony in play - you go half way to addressing a situation but not the full distance as that would be too radical and annoy those who don't want to change despite the fact that change is necessary.

After receiving minimal run support in his first two starts, Ishiyama and Co. took matters into their own hands and combined to throw the Swallows’ second shutout of the young season.

Reviewing the field - Shikoku champions Eimei ( High School ) On 2015-3-20 Goro Shigeno wrote:
And now to the small island of Shikoku and their champions Eimei. I know the school is definitely a contender more often than not to get to Koushien, but I'm a bit surprised to find this is their first Senbatsu.

Day 6, Game 1 - Toukai Dai-yon (Hokkaido) vs. Toyohashi Kougyou (Aichi) ( High School ) On 2015-3-26 Goro Shigeno wrote:
For Toyohashi Kougyou, seeing Matsuyama Higashi pull off the upset had to be heartening as perhaps they can take something from that to their own performance today. While they are facing the Hokkaido champions, they are facing the Hokkaido champions.

Day 3, Game 1 - Naradai Fuzoku (Nara) vs. Tsuruga Kehi (Fukui) ( High School ) On 2015-03-23 Goro Shigeno wrote:
Two days in, and we haven't had a competitive game to the end. Given, most of the matchups so far were profiled to be one-sided, but still it's rather boring so far. And I'm not sure Day 3 will help us any, though it can be if a key player is out.

Reviewing the field - Shikoku runner-up Imabari Nishi ( High School ) On 2015-3-21 Goro Shigeno wrote:
And to round out things before we skip across the Setouchi Umi to Kyushu is the runner up to the first-timers Eimei - the established Imabari Nishi.

Day 6, Game 2 - Hachinohe Gakuin Kousei (Aomori) vs. Osaka Touin (Osaka) ( High School ) On 2015-3-26 Goro Shigeno wrote:
Seriously, how much would Kousei like to rid themselves of Osaka Touin. They've faced them twice in back-to-back Koushien finals and lost both times. You could even jokingly say they changed their official school name to get rid of the bad mojo.

Day 3, Game 2 - Sendai Ikuei (Miyagi) vs. Kamimura Gakuen (Kagoshima) ( High School ) On 2015-03-23 Goro Shigeno wrote:
Well, it's from one contender to another in Meiji Jingu champs Sendai Ikuei. Kamimura Gakuen is tasked with stopping them, but it's a tall order to ask for.

Day 7, Game 1 - Shizuoka (Shizuoka) vs. Kisaradzu Sougou (Chiba) ( High School ) On 2015-3-27 Goro Shigeno wrote:
The problem with trying to handicap these games is that most of them ended in blowouts, so it's very hard to make anything out of the games. Shizuoka had no problems with Ritsumeikan Uji, while Kisuradzu Sougou handled Okayama Ridai Fuzoku easily.

About

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
