プレイバック~1979.6.26~涙のバックホーム 

甲子園球場は高校野球が開催されています
一昨日(8/13)の第4試合は三重高校と熊本工業という、甲子園常連校同士の対決。三重高校が熊本工業をサヨナラで降しました。熊本工業と言えば、昭和12年の川上哲治さんと野口二郎さんの投げ合い…じゃなくて、松山商業との決勝戦での【奇跡のバックホーム】を思い出す方も多いと思います

プロ野球でも、今から30年前に劇的なバックホームがありました

近鉄、きわどく【前期】初優勝~本塁へ一直線送球~平野、南海の勝ち越し阻む

山下のバットがくるりと回って、近鉄が苦しみから解放された。五色のテープの雨の中を西本監督はマウンドに突き進み、歓喜の中で三度四度と宙に舞った。カクテル光線にキラリと光る白い歯が、心の奥底からの安心感をのぞかせた。勝負はつかなかったが、緊張の連続の3時間32分。それは山あり谷ありの栄光までの65試合をそのまま描き出した。

2回に早々と先行し、中一日の村田も好調だった。が、追いつかれてからナインにははっきりと気負い、焦りが見えた。バント失敗とけん制死でつぶした7回の逸機がその例だったし、8回の守りには勝負を急いだ村田が二死1・2塁とされ、代打阪本にも中前に痛打を浴び、どたん場に追い込まれた。

ここで近鉄の執念、いや西本監督の執念をのり移らせたのは平野だった。打球が二塁ベース付近からゴロで転がり、二塁走者定岡は快足とあって、スタンドからは悲鳴があがった。中堅平野は約10メートルも猛然とダッシュし、目にもとまらぬ早さで本塁へ返球した。白球はなんと待ち構える梨田のミットにノーバウンドで入り、すべり込んだ定岡を間一髪で刺した。

『ボールが転がってきたとき、あの走者をかえしてしまえば、すべてが終わりと思った。だからイレギュラーしようが、ハンブルしようがかまわないから、とにかく前でつかまえて刺すことだけを考えた。どうやって投げたか、なぜノーバウンドになったかなんて全然覚えていない。夢中だった。』という試合後の平野の言葉に実感がこもっていた。

選手に不評を買おうが、周囲に非難されようが、ただ練習至上主義でチームづくりにのぞんだ西本監督。ここ2週間、チームがどん底におちったときも、気晴らしの休養を拒否した。もし鶴岡監督や三原監督だったら、別の選手操縦法があっただろうが、西本監督は『弱いから負けるんだ、気力を出せ』とひたすら言い続けた。
そのひたむき過ぎる姿勢が、かえって選手を萎縮させるという見方もあった。しかし、絶体絶命の危機で気力だけをふりしぼり、すばらしいプレーを見せた平野。『あいつが持ち前の強い性格をあらわにしてチームを救ってくれた』と目を赤くする老監督だが、まれに見る65試合目での栄光は西本イズムの凱歌ともいえる。

朝日新聞縮刷版より抜粋しました

☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

【江夏の21球】【10.19】【ブライアント4連発】【逆転・代打・満塁・お釣りなし・優勝決定・サヨナラホームラン】など、【ドラマチック】が売り物の近鉄バファローズ。
前年のスワローズの優勝により、12球団で唯一の【優勝未体験チーム】として取り残された状態になっていました。
しかし、シーズン前にそのスワローズから獲得したマニエルが打ちまくり、5月末に前期優勝マジックが点灯する独走態勢。ところが、オリオンズ戦で八木沢投手の投球がマニエルのアゴを直撃して戦線離脱するとチームも一気に失速してブレーブスの猛追を受け、ひん死の状態で迎えたのがこのゲームでした。

後期優勝はブレーブスにさらわれるものの、彗星のごとく現れたラッキーボーイ・山口哲治投手の活躍で、プレーオフではブレーブスを降し、悲願の初優勝をとげるのでした。

西本監督は1920年生まれ、第二次世界大戦真っ只中に立教大学を繰り上げ卒業して戦地へ…という年代の監督です。私らの親よりも一回りくらい上、非科学的頑固一徹、とてもじゃないですが、私だったらついていけないと思います。で、ブレーブスでもバファローズでも、ついていけない選手がゴロゴロ出てきて、その都度諍いを起こしながらも優勝するのですから、指導者としての資質があるのでしょうね。

劇的バックホームの平野さんは85年まで現役を続けて通算1055安打。現場にはまったく興味が無かったようで、天王寺か上本町あたりでスナックを経営しながらラジオ大阪の解説を長くされていましたが、今はどうされているのでしょうね?
平野さんの返球をガッチリと掴み、本塁を死守した梨田さんは、ご存知の通りファイターズの監督です。

いつも同じようなことばっかし言うてますが…タイガースって、こういう熱いハートを持った選手が少ないですよね
