High school baseball is a really big deal in Japan; the national championships are a major sporting event that draw huge paying crowds and are heavily covered in the media. It's like Japan's March Madness except for the fact that it's in August.

This is exactly why I listen to recordings of myself singing in the shower while driving. What kind of sucker would listen to other people doing music?!
