Bio

I am a medium-term resident of Japan who just likes to travel and wander about, both on and off the beaten track.

On August 22:
Predictions Larry? That’s too hard, as just about anything happens in this tournament.

There are some favorites though. Powerhouse Osaka Toin (7 appearances) is back again this year after winning the tournament in 2012. Last year’s ace pitcher, Shintaro Fujinami, is currently in the starting rotation for the Hanshin Tigers.

Ichiro’s old school, Aikodai Meiden (11 appearances, including 2 with Ichiro) from Aichi Prefecture, is making another run at it this year.

And Seiryou, Hideki Matsui’s alma mater, is back for its 16th appearance representing Ishikawa Prefecture. Matsui played at Koshien all 3 summers in high school. He was so good that opposing teams just intentionally walked him, including a whopping 5 times in a single game.
