NPB Bullet Points: Koshien Wraps Up, Dragons Get Sick Too
by Patrick Newman (Aug 24, 2009)
Koshien wrapped up yesterday with a wild finale. If you missed it live, you can still check it out in the Justin.tv archives. Standard justin.tv url-tweaking applies. On to the links...
- Goro Shigeno live-blogged yesterday's Koshien final. Despite losing, Nihon Bunri put a great never-say-die effort.
- With Koshien over, Japan will send a team of high school all-stars
to Compton, CA for a three-game series against US all-stars. Gen has
the Japanese roster, and before you ask, no Yusei Kikuchi will not take part, ostensibly due to his back injury.
- Toshiya Sugiuchi struck out 15 Nippon Ham Fighters on Sunday and has quietly put up another excellent season.
- I'm no Deanna, but I've travelled a bit and taken a few pictures. I decided to share a few of the better ones as desktop backgrounds. Give 'em a look if you're interested.
