So far, it seems to be very vigilant.카지노사이트 There are some players who haven’t spoken yet (laughs).”
Veteran right-hander Yu Darvish (37, San Diego Padres) expressed his feelings about joining the Japanese national baseball team. On the 17th, Darvish started training for the Japanese national team at the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) held in Miyazaki, Japan. Darvish warmed up lightly by playing catch and checking breaking balls, but Darvish, who is a senior in the Japanese national team, is known to have trained a little lonely(?).
Japanese media ‘Daily Sports’ said on the 17th, ‘Darvish is a different level even for Japanese baseball star players. There are players who are still nervous (in front of Darvish).”
Darvish laughed, saying, “I was able to concentrate and train as usual,” but said, “So far (the juniors) seem to be very wary of me. There are some players who haven’t spoken yet.”
Darvish is currently the only Japanese national team to have experienced the 2nd WBC title in 2009. Ace, who gave Japan their second WBC championship, was on the WBC mound again after 14 years and drew attention.
Looking at his major league career, his juniors can respect him. Darvish started 242 games over 10 seasons in the big leagues, recording 95 wins and 75 losses, 1488 innings, and an average ERA of 3.50. Just before joining his national team, he agreed to a six-year, $180 million (approximately 140 billion won) extension contract with his team, San Diego, and announced that he was still in the big leagues in his late 30s.
Roki Sasaki (22, Chiba Lotte Marines), a rising star in the Japanese baseball world, is also nervous in front of Darvish. Sasaki is Chiba Lotte’s ace who throws a fastball with a maximum speed of 164km per hour, but compared to his senior Darvish, he has a long way to go right now. Sasaki was still one of the juniors who talked to Darvish.
Darvish was the only one among the five major leaguers selected as the WBC Japan representative to join the Miyazaki camp in Japan. Shohei Otani (29, LA Angels), Seiya Suzuki (29, Chicago Cubs), Las Nuba (26, St. Louis Cardinals), Masataka Yoshida (30, Boston Red Sox), etc. participated in the spring camp of their team in March. I am planning to enter Japan.
Darvish emphasized that Japan’s strength is unity. He said, “Japan’s strength is getting close to each other. In a short period of time, you might think it’s difficult to get close, but I think we can do it.”
