Comments by manager and players

Manager Megumi Kitta

"First inning fell into the measures of partner and did not advance to good direction of thing to make after second inning in chance either, and a fret was seen to player. Habits of ball and umpire could not make a calm decision, and partner team exceeded at point of experience. Before attack of sixth inning, we called out to have you see figure which played baseball hard happily and tried hard that players cheered up and heaped up. Therefore we think that we might be used to one. We felt that we must tell part without international meeting experience of this Age Range in words."

The Harue Yoshii captain (Riseisha)

"We were very glad that we could hit timely in important scene. Head had squeeze, too, but we had you say that you gave up and entered turn at bat at director to wave strike well. It was inserted in fast fastballs in the early stages, but we had bat briefly compactly and coped. It prevents you from being defeated by other teams well very much as it is team with spirit."

Nanami Ohno (Fukuchiyama Seibi)

It "was told to be the virtual final by director and went with strong feeling. As sweet ball was considered to be hit surely, being conscious of course, we were able to throw well. As team was able to beat from practice game all the time, we believed when he/she absolutely took point."
