Shigeharu Tsuboi attended Waseda University where he was a reserve
player on the varsity baseball team. Waseda’s biggest baseball rival was
Keio 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 University, this was a send-off game held immediately before the
mobilization of many students into military service. Waseda won the
game, 10 to 1.
Tsuboi flew to his death in a suicide mission from Bansei Air Base at Minamisatsuma City, Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan.
