  • Okinawa Shogaku wins it all!

    Posted by simon c on 2008 April 4日 Friday

    Okinawa Shogaku high school won the Koshien Spring Invitational Tournament with a resounding 9 – 0 thumping of Seibo high school from Saitama in the tournament’s final today. This is the school’s 2nd Spring championship, they won for the first time 9 years ago. The game even featured an inside the park homerun, so it was pretty entertaining for a blowout. shogaku1.jpgThe organizing committee chairman (or someone in a similar position) droned on in his post-tournament speech, and congratulated kids from all the participating teams on a great tournament, but chided that there were too many runners being picked off and that there were too many called third strikes. Why he’s trying to dictate the style of play, I’m not sure. And I never really listen to these speeches so I was kind of surprised about how detailed he was in his talk about the tournament, surely putting anyone below the age of 50 to sleep.Anyways, congrats Okinawa Shogaku on the 2nd championship in a decade, and good luck in the Okinawan qualifiers for the summer Koshien tournament!
