Haruo Nagara attended Keio University where he pitched for the
varsity baseball team. Keio’s biggest baseball rival was Waseda
University and as the war progressed, one last game between the two
teams was arranged. Held on October 16, 1943, at the Totsuka Stadium of
Waseda, this was a send-off game held immediately before the
mobilization of many students into military service. Keio lost the game,
10 to 1.
On May 25, 1945, Haruo Nagara died during an attack from a U.S. military aircraft while transporting ammunition to Okinawa.
