VIDEO: Koshien High School Baseball Tournament.

I filmed, Tomohiro Anraku, the 16-year-old pitching phenom out of Ehime, Japan, who was made famous after hurling 772 pitches over 5 games in 9 days in the Spring Koshien High School Baseball Tournament. Β Here he is in the summer tournament on two days rest, after throwing 137 pitches in his previous start.

94 MPH on his 183rd, and final pitch, at 4:27.

  1. This is incredible! — Really enlightening about just what young pitchers are truly capable of without all the coddling thay get in US. – explains why Dice-K had so much trouble adjusting to the routine in Boston! — Thanks for the video and the details!
