On the 7th, the second day of the camp, Seibu Hodaka Yamakawa, who has been selected to represent Japan in the WBC = World Baseball Classic, hit the indoor practice field and showed a sharp swing.
Last season, Yamakawa, who won the home run king and RBI king in the Pacific League, has been selected to represent Japan in the WBC, which starts in March.
While it was raining on the 7th, the second day of the camp following the first day of the camp, Yamakawa practiced batting in the indoor practice field from the morning.
Yamakawa was checking to see if he had enough strength in his stomach when he swung the bat while inflating the balloon in his mouth.
And in the batting practice against machines and batting pitchers after this, he was hitting sharp balls one after another in the direction of the center.
Yamakawa said, "It's been raining for two days in a row since I entered the camp, but the barometer of my condition is proportional to the flight distance of the ball. He was burning with desire to improve further hitting.
