170 wins in total in Japan and the United States Giants pitcher Iwakuma to retire from active duty only this season October 19th 14:30
Hisashi Iwakuma, a professional baseball giant who has won 170 wins in Japan and the United States, will retire from active duty only this season.
Pitcher Iwakuma is 39 years old.
In 2000, he joined Kintetsu from Horikoshi High School in Tokyo in 5th place in the draft, and from a height of 1 meter and 90 centimeters, he accurately threw sharp fastballs and changing balls onto the course, and was active in Kintetsu and Rakuten.
In addition to the most wins and the best ERA, he also won many titles such as the league's best player and the Sawamura Award, and won 107 wins in Japan.
In 2012, he transferred to the Mariners of the Major League Baseball and achieved 63 double-digit wins, including achieving no-hitters and no-runs, marking 170 wins in Japan and the United States.
I transferred to the Giants last season and returned to the Japanese baseball world for the first time in eight years, but I couldn't go up to the mound of one army for two years as a Giants due to the influence of my right shoulder that was operated on in 2017.
According to the team, pitcher Iwakuma has decided to retire from active duty only this season, so he will explain the reason why he decided to retire at a press conference on the 23rd of this month.
