As would I. A pitcher is a lot more valuable than a catcher. However I think they were off in saying that they could make anyone a catcher. A great hitting and defensive catcher are very rare and valuable as well.

So Sawamura has been written off it seems, or reduced to a minor character because he plays soccer now? Shimizu is still tied to Goro because she is a potential love interest, but I'd hoped Sawamura would have been close enough friends to the others to make more appearances.

I think the story will be mainly about Goro and Toshi in terms of baseball. For Sawamura it is less likely to go back to baseball, but, who knows, since he will also graduate and might start afresh in the high school as a baseball team member. But, I don't think he will decide so. He was a soccer player at the beginning, he is a soccer player now, and he will most probably be so in the future...

Episode 7: Anyone want to make a comment on what the shy girl who likes toshiya (kume?) implied when she said Toshiya was forcing himself to play the way he was in the game...

Well since she kinda "knows" him, she saw through his "double play".

He's forcing hisself to be a baddass in order to win the match and show a coldhearted machin to win to the scouts of Kaido High. But deep in his heart it's clear to her that he really really wanted to play fairly against Goro.

If that Kaido stuff wasn't there he'd never had play the match that way.


That's why she meant by that sentence. At least that's how I feel it.

Great hitting catchers are rare indeed. Hell, every year im reminded of this when i draft my fantasy baseball teams and I always get stuck with pieces of tumbleweed and driftwood behind the plate.

Although I do not follow baseball, it seems to me that catchers can be trained to become very good even though they may not be very talented. Naturally, good instincts are required, but I believe you can still obtain that if you train very hard. But, for the pitchers, you need to have a powerful arm, and that is not something you can obtain even if you train very hard.

No. You don't need to have a powerful arm to pitch, although it doesnt hurt. If you aren't a flamethrower, you have to be a command pitcher. Throw a lot of pitches, and find other ways of being successful without velocity. Movement on your pitches, big breaking balls, placement, etc. Guys like Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine dominated the 90s with an arsenal of pitches, none of which topped out over 90 mph.
