Abilities summary: I’m a fast runner and good outfielder
|2019 (In progress)||Lisjaki|
Kaname is a great ball player and a better teammate. He is very fast, runs the bases well, and is a very good contact hitter. His speed helps him run down balls in the outfield and save runs with the catches he makes. He is very fundamentally sound and has good knowledge and feel for the game.
Although this video does not have Kaname in it, it shows the high school level of which he competed at in Japan.
