[8/29/2016] Samurai Japan: Naruki Terashima could get first start

The U18 Samurai Japan team arrived in Taichung, Taiwan on August 28 and held evening practices at Taichung Baseball Field. Workouts lasted about two hours with players focused on loosening up their bodies after a long travel schedule. The team practiced at Taichung Intercontinental Baseball Stadium on August 29.

Riseisha’s Naruki Terashima will most likely start the first game of the tournament for Japan on August 30. He threw thirty-two pitches in the bullpen on August 29. Takashi Hayakawa took things a little slow because he threw fifty-five pitches during Saturday’s exhibition game against the Samurai Japan college team.
