I was looking to expand my coverage of kokoyakyu to more than just the Koshien tournament itself to include the prefectural qualifiers (which you saw) and the Fall Tournaments that determine for the most part the teams invited to Senbatsu (aka Haru Koshien).
The interesting thing is that Fall Tournaments start while the Koshien is happening!!!
In fact, 5 prefectures have already started their qualifiers - Miyagi, Shizuoka, Gifu, Aichi and Hyogo! Chiba, Kyoto and Osaka have their schedules out!
There's no way though that I can start covering the fall tournaments right now though with Koshien going on. I'll have to get to that when things conclude at Koshien.
But seriously, baseball year never really ends for these kids!!
