高校野球の話

各地で甲子園の予選が盛り上がっています。我が母校・静岡高校も甲子園目指して奮闘中で昨日は何度も負けを覚悟したほどのシーソーゲームで9回裏にサヨナラ勝ちし、明日はいよいよ準々決勝。

Today I’m talking about high school baseball.
The National High School Baseball Championship of Japan, commonly known as “Summer Koshien”, is an annual nationwide high school baseball tournament. It is the largest scale amateur sport event in Japan, even as soccer continues to gain more attention. There are about 3,500 teams participating nationwide. Currently, my alma mater is also competing in the Shizuoka Prefecture Tournament for a berth in the Koshien Tournament. They won yesterday’s game to remain in the top 8, and will play in the quarterfinals tomorrow.

昨日草薙球場まで応援に行った私の友人が送ってくれた写真です。応援風景は私が在校生だった50~60年前と変わらず、伝統の継承と言えます。そして今年も新たな伝説が生まれる。人はそこを聖地と呼ぶ。

A friend of mine who went to the ballpark yesterday to cheer for the team sent this photo.
The cheering scene is the same as it was 50-60 years ago when I was a student at the school, which can be said to be a continuation of tradition. And this year, too, a new legend will be born. People call it a sacred place.

サヨナラ勝ちして歓喜の瞬間!

A moment of jubilation after winning the game!

さあ明日の準々決勝には私も草薙球場に応援に駆け付けます。さて、どうなることやら。。。

The yellow one in the upper right is my alma mater. Now, I will be at the stadium to cheer for them in the quarterfinals tomorrow. Well, I wonder what will happen…
