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. The 17-year-old Anraku, who experienced pain in his right elbow last year, is no stranger to the type of marathon pitching performances that are legendary in Japanese high school baseball. 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.
