Anraku, who many consider the future of Japanese baseball, took the mound and pitched a complete-game shutout an 8-0 win in the qualifying tournament for the summer tourney.

Japan's High School Baseball Federation is considering introducing measures such as a tiebreaker and pitch counts limits in order to protect the health of the country's future stars.
