Are you a baseball fan? Let us know in Japanese and leave a comment!
Yes, you’ve got the first sentence (particles included) right! 😇:thumbsup:
As to those phrases…all of them are baseball specific phrases, although よっしゃ can be
used in any situations….
I’m not sure how well you actually know and understand Japanese, but
translation into English might not be helpful here. かっとばせ is not exactly ‘get on base’,
but it could be ‘hit it’ too. It simply means ‘to hit the ball to a long distance’
and ぶちかませ in this case means almost the same. The latter can mean more than that
and also it’s not a very ‘nice’ language.
ここで一発 in this case… this is not a ‘translation’, but what we insinuate is ‘now it’s a good time
to have a hit’, hoping for a home run.
Hope this helps!
Boku wa hiroshima carp ga daiski des.
I love the Hiroshima Carp.
Did I get my particles right?
Some baseball phrases from the Cheer Bats that I bought at a Carp game this summer:
Get on base!
Not sure about this one; might be “Hit it!”
Not sure I got the last character right, the font on the Cheer Bat is really hard to read.

Let us know if you have questions regarding our lessons.
Hi, I just wanted to second George-san’s proposal. I am no expert to be sure, but I do like baseball and would like to understand it in Japanese. I found a site with a long list of Japanese baseball terms, phrases, etc. If it’s ok to do so here, I can post the link: http://www.jekai.org/entries/aa/00/np/aa00np53.htm
Thank you for your comment and suggestion!
We will consider it for sure.
March 27 is opening day for Japanese Pro Baseball. Anyone interested in getting a word list together? Seems like we have a few experts here and I would be happy to contribute some things I have managed to pick up.
And now I am in the process of going though the entire particle series you offer here (just did up to lesson 4). Hopefully I can remedy this situation.
( Good evening everyone. This is a fun topic. I am also a baseball fan. I have seen some Japanese baseball on youtube before, it was pretty interesting. Someday, I would like to actually go to see a baseball game in Japan. )
