High-school baseball is huge in Japan.
This is mainly because of how in other parts of the world, by the time athletic prospects are college age they are either in academies, playing in junior leagues, in the pros straight out of high school, etc.

I realize gross isn't impressive, but MLB averages 30K a game for about a billion games a year. That is massively impressive, not just for the sheer numbers, but that they can keep the level of interest that high while supplying so much product.
