Fly to base, Nakayma!
(Nakayama is a very common surname, like "Daniels")
And some of the players who let 'er rip (and fly to base) are Little Leaguers.

Yes, Japan is known for Little League baseball excellence, and has played in the Little League World Series two dozen times. In fact, since 2007, the winner in Japan receives an automatic berth in the series (and doesn't have to play Taiwan for a spot).
That's how good they are.
And what's more, Japan has won the Little League World Series nine times, including 2013.
From Little League to the World Baseball Classic, we're talkin' mastery.
[If you don't read Japanese, but want to have some sense of the Japanese kana and kanji in these posts, just copy the phrases and paste them into translation software such as Babylon or Google Translate].
