YAMATO News Letter
Baseball team participating in the ”Community Sports Festival Softball Baseball Tournament."
“As the final official game of the year, it was held on September 3rd at Mishima Ballpark.
Our first opponent was the Mets, a team belonging to the league’s B class, which is a stronger division.
We took an early lead by scoring 2 runs in the first inning, giving us a good start.
However, we allowed baserunners in every inning, and it was a challenging situation to keep the opposing team’s runs to a minimum. As the game progressed, our errors started to accumulate, leading to more runs for the opposing team.
During the 5th inning, the game was called due to time restrictions, and we lost 2-8. It was a frustrating defeat in the first game of the tournament.
While there are unavoidable aspects of allowing baserunners due to errors and walks, We felt that we need to strengthen our offense to win games in the future.
We will work on improving our weaknesses as we look ahead to next spring.”
