Kokubo-kun has 3 games in a row and 4 home runs in the tournament record.
At the elementary school baseball tournament “NPB12 Baseball Team Junior Tournament KONAMI CUP 2021”, Chunichi Dragons Junior’s Soya Kokubo released the final baseball that jumped into the stand of Jingu Stadium on the 30th. Far beyond the home run zone of elementary school students, to the left wing spectator seats. The hall was noisy due to the shock.
Semi-final with Fukuoka Softbank Hawks Junior. It was an extra eight innings with a tie at 7-7. In the tiebreaker starting from the first and second bases without death, the lead 9th, Daimasa Kobayashi, hit the bases loaded with a bunt. When Kokubo-kun catches the third ball from the second ball, the hit ball draws a big arc and lands on the stand. It was a flight distance that I couldn’t think of as a sixth grader.
Kokubo-kun, who is dynamic with throwing, is a talented person who pushes the drumstick as “become a professional” by Chunichi OB director Minatogawa. The tournament’s four home runs became a tournament record. This is the 13th tournament for the team. The match was won 11-7, and he won the championship.
