Deaf pitcher beaten at local high school baseball match in Shimane Prefecture

July 18, 2014

Following up the past article on Hironaka Soma, a Deaf pticher:

At the Summer High School Baseball Shimane convention, Masuda East High School (益田東) and Rissho University Shonan High School (立正大淞南), each with 80 or more teammates, played a match on July 17.

The Deaf pitcher Hironaka Soma of the Masuda East had thrown by himself through the match, and was beaten by the opponent, the runner-up to the championship last summer, by one point lead.
