The first high school boy who brought back the soil of Koshien?
According to Wikipedia, the Koshien episode of the Fukujima clan is spelled as follows:
" In the summer of 1949, when I was defeated by Okayama Prefectural Kurashiki Industrial High School in the semifinals in the summer of 1949, I was defeated by Okayama Prefectural Kurashiki Kogyo High School, and on the line with the scoreboard and the home base, I looked up to the scoreboard with a deep sorrow, picked up the scoreboard with a deep sorrow and, unconscionably, picked up the dirt and put it in the back pocket of his trousers and left the Koshien stadium with a heavy step.The day after he returned home, Shunzo Nagahama, who was impressed by the scene of Fukushima's retreat, said, " What I learned at the Koshien school is something that I cannot learn in school education.
The soil in your pocket is all packed with it.For their food, I want them to live in the right way."FUKUUSHIMA, who doesn't remember any of the soil in his pockets, rushed out of the bag in his bag, and spread the papers, and turned the back of his back pants and turned his back pockets, and the earth came out of a mere isle of the Koshi-en.
Fukujima consults with his mother, and puts it in a wooed pot with a rubber tree at the front door.The soil of Koshien became a food of the heart of Fukujima, and supported Fukusima.
The boy who brought the soil in fact existed in the past, but this episode became famous and Fukusima became known as 'the first ball with the soil of Koshien first.' "
As for the behavior of a high school student, "Take the soil of the Koshien home with the soil of Koshien," Fukujima said, "I don't want to be disgable, so I want you to take care of your efforts for the Koshien area."
The other day, Mr. Fukujima was led by Mr. Fukujima as the chief director of the Kyushu District Council in the World Baseball Organization's Kyushu District qualifying tournament.At that time, we were able to speak to our staff, and we let them take pictures together at such a kind of a kind of veto. He was the head of Fukushima.Congratulations to the Baseball Hall of Fame and the Baseball Hall of Fame!
