Kanagawa Prefecture’s Keio Academy won the All Japan High School Baseball Championship (Summer Koshien).

On the 23rd, at the 105th Summer Koshien held at Koshien Baseball Stadium in Japan, Keio won 8-2 against Sendai Ikuei (Miyagi Prefecture), who was aiming for a second consecutive victory, and stood at the top for the first time in 107 years. This is the first time in the history of Koshien that it has returned to the top after failing to win the championship for over a century. It is also a Japanese high school baseball record to advance to the final after 103 years.

As soon as Keio entered the first inning, leadoff Minato hit a home run. This is also the first time in the history of the summer Koshien, and there have been two leadoff home runs in the spring Koshien.

Afterwards, Keio tied up the opponent’s errors and 4 guides in the 5th inning, scoring a large number of points and congratulating himself on the victory.카지노사이트

On the other hand, Keio’s ace, Oyake Masaki, took the mound in the 5th inning in the final after a complete pitch in the semi-final, and allowed no runs through 5 innings until the 9th inning, becoming the winning pitcher for two consecutive games. Known as the top star of Koshien this summer, Oyake is likely to join the U-18 World Youth Championship held in September.

Also, among the sophomores at Keio Gakuen, Katsuji Kiyohara, the son of Kazuhiro Kiyohara, the ‘legend of the 500 home run’, appeared as a pinch hitter and got a walk, setting a record for both father and son to win Koshien at the same time.
