    I know, in the grand scheme of the game, it didn’t matter, but the bottom of the 6th of the championship game was epic I thought. Yuma Nakagawa pitching a scoreless inning after loading the bases, the amazing battle against Nagisa. Fun times….

    I’ve been enjoying watching their games on YouTube. But I’m not clear about the format. Do they play short tournaments between league play, or is it just various tournaments that make up a season?

    And btw, what is the “faux pas” stat?

    Thanks.

      The format can be a little confusing. I had a hard time understanding what they were trying to do when they were providing explanations of it before the start of the season.

      In a nutshell, there are two tournaments: the Tiara Cup and the Victoria Series.

      The Tiara Cup is a number of mini tournaments that culminates with a two-game championship at the end of the season (the two teams with the most tournament victories will compete).

      The Victoria Series takes place over the course the year and pits the top players from the West and East. Kind of a like a long All-Star series.

      Not really sure what the “faux pas” stat is. If you could copy and paste the original Japanese, I can probably tell you.

        Thanks for that clarification. I understood how the Victoria Series worked. Wasn’t sure about the Tiara Cup.

        Another question: How many games do they play during the season?

        About the stat term. I thought it might mean “error”, but here:

        I was also wondering if the independent leagues like Kansai also made their games available to watch.

        Thanks.

    You guessed right. That means “error.”

    As for other Independent League teams streaming their games… Honestly, I’m not sure. I think there are teams that stream games, but not on a regular basis. At least none that I can think of off the top of my head.
