          there was runners on 1st and 2nd. the runner on 2nd made it home and the runner on 1st made it to 3rd and was gonna stop there but the outfield made an error throwing the ball in so the runner was able to go home.

            Yeah... don't take Gunma for granted though. Last year got crazy around the quarterfinals with eventual champs Maebashi Shougyo going hero mode on Maebashi Ikuei and Kiryo Dai-ichi, and eventually beating Kendai in the title game... that was only part of the chaos there.

    Damn, at least the cute traditional kimono girls are happy.
    I was hoping for some tiebreaker kino, these finals have been good but sooo fast, I guess the aces weren't going as hard in the earlier rounds since those felt longer.

        Straight bracketed knockout tournament which is ranked.

        so they divide the country in multiple tournaments and each champion goes to koshien?

        • 3 weeks ago
          Atropeled Koshien guy

          each prefecture/state has one
          and yea each prefecture (hokkaido, tokyo and osaka are split in 2) winner goes to koshien

          Every prefecture has a tournament except Hokkaido (north and south) and Tokyo (east and west) have two. Yes, single game elimination and the champion goes to Koshien.
