Congratulations Japan on winning the World Baseball Classic. I don't know how they can justify calling it a classic after only occuring two times, but the game against South Korea was certainly memorable. After surrendering the tying run in the 9th, Japan rallied in extra innings. Ichiro made me proud by hitting a 2 run double in the 10th. He lad Japan with 4 hits in the game. Undoubtedly the brilliant leadership from coach Yoda made the difference. I'm only disappointed that I can't find his first name anywhere.
