ORIX's 4th Candidate New Foreigner Jones Starts January 28 20:39
Adam Jones, a new foreign player who is expected to be the fourth candidate for professional baseball and ORIX, practiced for the first time at a baseball facility in Osaka City after coming to Japan and said, "I will move my body firmly and prepare for the start of the season I want to do that. "
Jones arrived at Kansai Airport from the United States on the 26th in the United States on March 26 with a long hitting power that marked over 25 home runs in the Major League for seven consecutive years since 2011.
Jones visited the Dotonbori area of Osaka on the 27th and visited a baseball facility in Konohana-ku, Osaka on the 28th, and practiced for about an hour for the first time after visiting Japan.
After initially moving his body with a dash, he threw about 100 balls in the catch ball and carefully examined the feel of a Japanese ball, which was more damp than a major league ball.
In the following batting practice, the team staff hit a dozen or so balls to throw sharp shots.
Jones said, "I have a little jet lag, but I was conscious of sweating because I was training for the first time in Japan. I want to keep my body moving well in the camp and prepare for the season start."
Jones will be participating in a camp starting in Miyazaki City next month.
