Pacific high school baseball Fine Five, post-Far East edition
Published: May 30, 2012
1, American School In Japan. Losses to Major League Developmental team in China in no way diminish the Mustangs’ season of a generation.
2, Seoul American. What a surprise the Falcons threw at us, with Chris Horton’s and Chung Winchip’s late championship-game heroics.
3, Robert D. Edgren, Japan. Leo Austin, Christian Wolfewicz, Tristan Jefferson, Eagles did what most expected.
4, Kadena, Okinawa. Two innings short of erasing what’s now three years of silver-medal heartbreak.
5, Nile C. Kinnick, Japan. Ross & Ross & Co. just a semifinal loss away from a final that would have been doubly surprising.
Gut feeling lookback: Did NOT see Seoul American coming in D-I; Edgren did exactly as advertised in D-II.
