Manager Inaba sends Yale to younger student

 We started camp just before from July 1, and this day on the second day performed the first practice game after skilled player, JR East and the organization of amateur baseball and was defeated with three to five.
 After the game, Manager Atsunori Inaba preached the need of communication and Solidarity in front of one of all players and staff saying "please fight with pride of SAMURAI JAPAN in solidarity".
 In addition, in front of eyes to inspect, outfielder Shota Nakayama which was younger student of Hosei University (Hosei University) smiled at left field by coverage after encouragement about having given off daring home run in forth inning saying such "a home run was watched while extra-base hit was demanded, and he was glad".
 We spoke frank impression about hill staff saying "all were good, and it remained in impression that Yuya Ishii pitcher (Keio University) which we threw out to the last inning threw very strong fastballs".
 And "myself learned many things by Tokyo six Collegiate baseball for four years, too. With Solidarity power, we sent yell saying we think that he/she played with strong feeling not to yield to another Collegiate National Team (Japan-U.S. Collegiate baseball, Haarlem Baseball Week entered team).

Comments by Players

The captain, Daiki Kawai outfielder (Keio University)

"There is place where communication is insufficient still more as it is the second day, but all face thinks that we will increase more and more from now on in the same league as it is revealed. It is situation called the captain, but as leading players of each school gather, each person has consciousness of leader, and I think van to be sharp in that"

Shota Nakayama outfielder (Hosei University)

As "we thought, "PH will appeal" since before having slept, we were all right of yesterday. It was told to be, "we grew big again" (when we shook hands) from Manager Inaba (laugh). We wrestle being conscious of how to use hand (the left hand) before to be able to provide it at the actual fighting as we thought that hitting power does not lose in selection camp (it leaked out from member who participated in Japan-U.S. Collegiate baseball, Haarlem Baseball Week). We want to catch 1B of the world in unison"
