I run 30 meters in 4.04 seconds, mainly play infield, pitcher, and outfield, and am currently practicing as a catcher.

My weapon is to get on base and steal steals in a variety of ways. Also, I can hit to the right depending on the situation. I also hit four home runs in Poland and three in America.

I played as an infielder in Japan until college. I am used as a starting pitcher in domestic competitions and tournaments in the Polish league. I have continued to pitch using side hands and quick pitches. I’m currently practicing as a catcher, so my strengths are base running and being able to defend anywhere.

I’m Japanese, but I couldn’t speak English very well. However, by always smiling and working hard, I was able to play in three countries and gain recognition. I can lead my team with my voice and energy.


Career Highlights

  • Sendai University Baseball Club
  • American Summer League (tournament record AVG.437HR1, season all-star selection)
  • Australian State League “Melbourne Mulgrave Rebels”
  • Polish Extra League


Goals Overseas

I wanted to become a baseball coach in Japan in the future, and I wanted to learn about baseball around the world. I also want to play at a high level.

Although he broke his finger at the end of the Polish league, he contributed to the team with his passion for base running and bunting. I also coached junior and softball throughout the season.
