Waseda Jitsugyo clinches Koshien title
Yuki Saito worked tirelessly on the mound yet again
to lead Tokyo's Waseda Jitsugyo to its first National High School Baseball Championship title after a 4-3 victory over Komadai Tomakomai from Hokkaido on Monday.
It was a glorious victory
after a rematch.
Sunday games went into 15th innings,
but the score remained 1-1.
Sure was ecstatic, for the first time
in so many years
of watching Junior Baseball every summer I have spent here.
My Tatay was a graduate of Waseda
and I feel his jubilation in the Great Beyond....
He sure must be proud!
I also feel the happiness of every Waseda
graduate, student, professor and teachers,
as well as the athletes today
as they celebrate
the hard-fought victory.
