Did Ohtani Shohei (LA Angels) tell you to listen?
Darvish Yu (San Diego Padres), who was selected as the Japan representative for the World Baseball Classic (WBC), made a meaningful remark. Coincidentally, it coincided with Ohtani’s situation. Curious about Darvish’s intention According to the
Japanese media ‘Full Count’ reported on the 5th, Darvish will join the Japanese WBC national team’s Miyazaki camp from the first day.
Full Count said, ‘Darvish attended a fan appreciation event on the 5th. He met with American and Japanese press. He explained that he did not join the major league spring camp and headed for the Japanese national team.
Darvish said, “Ever since I had dinner with the coach in San Diego, he said he would go straight to Miyazaki. In my case, the club (San Diego) asked me when I was going. The choice was in my situation.”
Darvish said, “In the future, many Japanese players will advance to the major leagues and be selected for the WBC national team. I did not want to say ‘I came later because I am a major league player’.”
Full Count speculated that ‘it seems they didn’t want to set a bad precedent that major leaguers are special’.
Superstar Ohtani of the Japanese national team will participate from the Angels spring camp. According to the Yomiuri Shimbun, Ohtani will not attend the Japanese national team’s Miyazaki camp scheduled for February 17-27.
The Yomiuri Shimbun said, ‘Ohtani digests the spring camp of the team (Angels) starting on the 15th. I will join the Japanese national team on March 1st.”
Darvish’s remark this time applies to Ohtani as well.
Darvish is the eldest brother of the Japanese national team. Darvish advised the young players to relax, saying, “I hope you think it’s just an extension of the spring camp. It would be nice to work with a more relaxed mindset.”
The WBC kicks off on March 9. Japan will play its first match against China. The biggest match in Group B is the Korea-Japan match on March 10th. Japan is highly likely to save Darvish or Ohtani before the opening match and use them against Korea, the second match. 스포츠토토
