Owen’s middle school baseball team finished the season again undefeated with a 4-1 victory of Sons of the Light International Christian School yesterday in the finals of the Western Japan Athletic Association tournament. In the finals, Owen played centerfield and scored one of the four runs. His friend Euan, pitched a 2-hitter complete game, and had a perfect game going into the last inning. The Senri & Osaka International School Sabers have now taken four consecutive middle school boys baseball titles and the past two years went undefeated. They haven’t lost a game since 2014.
Earlier in the day, Owen pitched a complete game in the semifinals against Canadian Academy, allowing only one run. He had a great season and really enjoyed baseball. He also follows MLB and NPB so I think I’ve done my part to create a lifelong baseball fan. Basketball starts next week so expect some more blog posts.
