March 31, 2009 by naoko
The twice a year, in the spring and the summer, it’s taken place ‘The High School Baseball Tournament /高校野球 ’ at Koshien-studium/甲子園球場. The Japanese famous major leaguers in the U.S. like Ichiro Suzuki and Hideki Matsui were also high school baseball players, of course. To play in this High school baseball tournament is a big dream and a stepping-stone for a guy that wants to be professional.
These high school players look almost the same style. I think it has been almost the same as 90 years ago.( This tournament have a history of 90 years.) They wear white and black, sometimes blue uniforms, and CROPPY! Nevertheless, they are in period of adolescence. They are supposed to be stewed about their appearances. The only part of their bodies that they can look themselves hotter or cooler are their EYEBROWS ! Some guys tweeze their eyebrows so thin. They think it’s hot and cool! Umm, I don’t think so..
Some people quibble about their thin eyebrows because they are unsportsmanlike. Such people say that a baseball player is supposed to swing a bat as often as he can. They have no time to waste for plucking their eyebrows with tweezers. It’s nonsense! It’s only a baseball game! It’s only eyebrows!! I admire these guys sticking to baseball in this world abound with temptations.
