Murakami Munetaka (23, Yakult Swallows), who rewrote the home run history of Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) last year, is already unusual.
Japanese local media such as ‘Tokyo Sports’ wrote about Murakami on the 4th. Currently, Murakami is improving her fitness by training in Okinawa, where her team’s spring camp is held. He practiced batting two days in a row, and produced super-sized batting balls in succession.
Murakami showed off his good condition in the batting practice held on the 2nd. She caught her attention by hitting a batted ball estimated to be 140 meters away. She did it a day later and on the 3rd she did an even greater job. She fired a hard ball into the distance and broke the billboard. The impact was so great that a part of the screen fell off. 메이저사이트
The media said, “Murakami’s powerful ball hit the electronic signboard on the back screen, and part of it was damaged. Yesterday (2nd), he hit the ball outside the field and recorded an overwhelming flight distance,” he wrote, “a few hours later, the screen display was repaired, and the cost was 100,000 yen (approximately 950,000 won).”
Yakult coach Takatsu Shingo, who directed the training that day, said, “It seems that Murakami came to the camp swinging the bat properly during the off-season. It’s not my image yet, so I think (the pace) will go up even more,” expressing anticipation.
