Japanese High School Samurai’s ‘Smart Behavior’ Showed Admiration for Enemy General Occasional Action Is ‘Wonderful Idea’ | Full Count

Italian commander praises Osaka Toin and Matsuo’s ‘thank you’ as they entered batting turn

High school students carrying the Hinomaru on their backs caught the attention of their opponents even when they weren’t playing. The 30th WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup opened in Bradenton, Florida on the 9th (10th Japan time). Italian coach Francesco Alfie, who faced Samurai Japan in the opening game of the first round, hailed the casual behavior of the Japanese players as “a wonderful idea”.

Samurai Japan’s batting lineup scored 6 runs in the second inning, and even though they defended, they overwhelmed Italy with a 3-pitch shutout stint. Coach Alfie waved a white flag at the post-match press conference, saying: “They were a good team and had a sense of stability.”

Enemy generals also pay attention to other things besides samurai warrior games. This is the scene where #3 catcher Matsuo Shion (Osaka Toin) bowed to the Italian catcher and umpire when he entered the batting turn. Put your hands on your helmet and greet politely. The commander also nodded, saying, “Excellent philosophy. We don’t, but it’s a great way to think about it.

Matsuo said, “I would be happy if the world could learn more about Japanese baseball and use it as a reference.” After the match, there was also a scene where he made a fist with the Italian player. “I didn’t understand what he was saying,” he laughed, but he also showed a greedy attitude, saying, “I want to learn from the other team’s strengths while communicating with them. ” This may be obvious to Japan, but it was behavior that was precisely due to respect for the other party.
