Pvt. Higuchi
Hurls Winner
The baseball season is just about
over. The Yankees and the Car
dinals are playing out their re
spective schedules preparatory to
meeting each again in the World
Series. The various leagues, ma
jor and minor, are selecting their
candidates for the most valuable
player awards.
If the Non-Division Baseball
League of Camp Shelby were to
select such a player, In all prob
ability it would be a unanimous
vote for Pvt. Lefty Matsuo Higu
chi, aco portsider for the Japan
ese American Combat Team In
fantry Regiment nine.
Paced by the pitching of Higuchi,
the Japanese American Infantry
men won both halves of a split
schedule, winning twelve and losing
only one in the first half and win
ning eleven consecutive games in
the second half. Although they still
have a game to play they are un
disputed champions of the fastest
loop in the post, a league which
boasts many former professional
and semi-professional players.
When he wasn't on the mound
for the Japanese American, he
was playing in the outfield where
he is a consistent three hundred
hitter. His big bat has won almost
as many games as his arm for the
championship squad. Atthough he
has no illusions that he is another
Babe Ruth, he adds in his own de
fense: "Still I'm not a Gomez who
-emn't hit my weight up there at the
Unlike most left-handers who
have a reputation for being screw
balls on and off the field, Higuchi
is a hard-working, serious ball
hawk, according to 2nd Lt. Thomas
Watt, coach of the squad. Lt.
Watt was star centerflelder on the
Springfield College, Springfield,
Mass., nine and coached the base'
ball teams at Agawam High
Goh Meet Begins
A goh tournament sponsored by
the Western goh division will be
held at Rec. 3 tomorrow, Oct 10,
starting at 1:00 p. m.
About 50 or 60 are expected to
School, Agawam, Mass.. so he
ought to know what he's talking
In a game in which pitching is
supposed to be 60 per cent of the
aerense, Lerty Higuchi is a star.
But more than that, he's a team
player what professional writers
call a "ball players' player." Ho
has uncanny control, especially for
a porisiaer. He is essentially a
curve ball pitcher although he has
a fair fast ball and a good change
of pace. He has pitched quite a
number of one and two hitters but
never a no hitter, the dream of
all pitchers.
Although only 22 years of age,
Lefty Higuchi is a veteran ball
player. He recalls playing in his
grammar school days but it wasn't
until he began pitching for the
ioiani Hign scnooi in Honolulu
that he attracted much attention.
He modestly admits he was fairly
successful but not phenomenal.
But he must have been quite a
star, for in his junior year ho was
recruiiea to pitcn in the Hawaiian
Senior League, a semi-professional
association and the ranking league
of the Islands. At tho age of 18
he was the leading pitcher for the
Asanl or Athletics, a consistent
pennant contender. In 1042. they
won the championship with Higuchi
contriDuung nis share or victories.
In the spring of 1940 he went to
Japan with his team, representing
Hawaii in the Far Eastern Baseball
unampionsnips in TOKyo. in a
round robin tournament against
trie champions of the Philliplnes,
Manchuria, and Japan, his team
broke even in wins and losses. He
remembers he pitched a one hit
game against the Manchuria All-
