    I was there, but I’m too busy travelling through Japan and going to baseball games to write about them.

    Ohishi didn’t actually register higher than 147 on the scoreboard; does that confirm that the radar gun was slow? Mishima also didn’t hit higher than 146 and I know both of them regularly touch 154 at Jingu.

    I’ll be posting my scorecard when I’m back at home.

    Oh yeah, lots of people were pissed about Saitoh not doing anything in the game besides coaching first base for half of it. I was amused by that, like “please don’t tell me you only came here to see him”.

    The gun at Jingu is actually notoriously hot. I’m pretty sure that these kids’ real velocity is somewhere between those two numbers.
