Lotte Draft 1st place Sasaki Support from nursery school children Voluntary training January 28 18:24
Professional Baseball Lotte's No. 1 draft rookie Aki Sasaki pitched voluntarily on Ishigaki Island in Okinawa and worked on defensive training while receiving support from local nursery school children.
Sasaki has been conducting voluntary training with 22 young players on the 27th for a camp starting on Ishigaki Island from next month.
On the 28th of the second day, pitcher Sasaki first sweated with training to train his dash and torso.
She smiled and waved at the nursery school child she had met while walking around the practice area.
After that, while receiving encouragement from the children over the fence, "Work hard," he was working on catchball and defense practice with a relaxed expression.
After the practice, the 7-year-old boy from Aichi Prefecture was very pleased with the ball that he wrote the autograph, following the fan's autograph.
Sasaki said, "I was glad to have you cheer. I wish I could take the proper steps one by one."
Sasaki will continue his voluntary training this month to prepare for the camp-in on the 1st of next month.
