This year marked the 90th anniversary of the Tokyo’s Jingu Stadium (神宮球場) and the 113th year of the historical Soukeisen (早慶戦) which is the battle between the two rival schools of Waseda and Keio University. On May 29, 2016, some of the ABS members went to watch the second baseball Soukeisen of the Spring League and the winner belonged to Waseda! Cheers to the Waseda baseball team!

Our members were not only surprised by the passion of the crowd but also the respect they’ve shown towards the rival teams. The cheerleading teams (応援部) of each university are responsible for creating the exciting atmosphere among the crowd and they’ve done a great job. They cheered up the crowd by performing high-level gymnastics as well as singing school songs when it’s close to scoring a point. However, the cheerleaders and the crowd didn’t only cheer for their own schools but also showed their respect to their rivals by cheering for them as well. The tension and the friendship between the two universities were amazing and it was truly a wonderful experience.

Waseda’s cheerleading team and baseball team also held booths and sold hundreds and thousands of “cheering goods” (応援グッズ) which’re towels, hats, t-shirts, etc. But unluckily by the end of the game, our members weren’t able to get them as they were way too popular and all of them were sold out. The t-shirts were especially popular as it had a beautifully designed “Waseda” logo at the front and the school’s anthem printed at the back.
