Giant League Challenge Akiyama `` Let's play baseball for children '' lecturer to the leader January 19, 19:35
As children are moving away from baseball, a class gathering leaders of schoolchild baseball will be held in Yokohama on the 19th, and Shogo Akiyama, who will challenge the major league, said, `` I hope that children can continue playing baseball for a long time and happily. I want you to teach. "
In this seminar, volunteers from baseball officials in Kanagawa Prefecture opened to stop children from leaving baseball, and about 600 people, including schoolchild baseball instructors, gathered at the venue in Nishi-ku, Yokohama.
Akiyama from Yokosuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture, who plays in the Major League Reds this season, gave a lecture.
Akiyama said that having 100 swings every day when he was a child led to his confidence. “It is important that you do a small number of times, so it is important that you do it yourself. I want you to do it. "
After that, Takashi Saito, a Yakult pitcher and coach in Japan and the United States, said, "I felt that major leaders had a respect for the players. I thought it was a chance to grow rather than blame the players for not being able to do it. I want them to grow together in the same direction. "
An instructor from Fujisawa City said, "I want to make the children laugh at the ground, so I am conscious of not getting angry. I want to return to the children about the importance of continuing every day."
