Loki Sasaki (22, Chiba Lotte Marines), the protagonist of ‘Perfect Game’, 슬롯사이트took his first bullpen pitching after joining the Japanese national team in training. On the morning of the 19th, at the Miyazaki camp, he climbed the bullpen mound and threw 37 pitches. Guy Takuya (31, Softbank Hawks), the main catcher of the national team, received the ball.
Even in the Japanese national team, where the best players are gathered, Sasaki is a ‘hot’ player. His national teammates, including “great senior” Yu Darvish (37, San Diego Padres), and even the LA Dodgers scout focused on the ball he threw.
He threw a mixture of fastballs, forkballs, and sliders. On the 18th, I checked the breaking ball that Darvish advised. The day before, Sasaki captured Darvish’s bullpen pitching scene on his phone, but on this day, Darvish filmed Sasaki from behind the catcher.
Japanese media reported that Darvish nodded several times while watching Sasaki’s pitching from the bullpen. After training, the two talked while watching pitching videos. Catcher Guy said, “I felt it was great. I think it’s tuned enough.” It means that the pace is already up.
He appeared in a real game once and entered the national team. Sasaki started a practice game against the Yakult Swallows on the 15th and blocked 2 innings with 4 balls and 1 hit and no runs. He struck out 5 swings with a fast ball, forkball, and slider with a maximum speed of 160 km/h. 29 total pitches.The fourth hitter of the national team, Munetaka Murakami (23), also counted back with a strikeout on a swing. In the ball count 1B2S, he pulled out the bat by inserting a fastball at 160 km/h on a low course toward Murakami, a left-handed hitter. It was clearly adapted to the WBC official ball.
