Yoshinobu Yamamoto (25, Orix Buffaloes), a key pitcher for the Japanese national baseball team, pitched in the bullpen on the third day of team training. On the 19th, he threw a total of 36 balls at San Marin Stadium Miyazaka, where the Japanese national team camp training is in progress. 메이저사이트

It was Yamamoto’s pitching form that drew attention that day. He lifts his left leg and then pitches through a double kicking motion. Through a perfect center of gravity, it can use fastballs (fastballs), cut fastballs (cutter), and splitters (forks) that exceed 155 km per hour.

It is expected that a new pitching form will be introduced ahead of the 2023 WBC (World Baseball Classic). He pitched without lifting his left leg in bullpen pitching that day. According to the Japanese media, Abeta Times, “Yamamoto threw his toe as if sliding on the slope of the mound.” It was thrown in quick motion form.

Yamamoto played an active part as the ace of the Japanese team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and was the first to win the gold medal. In the semifinal match against Korea, he pitched well with 2 runs and 9 strikeouts in 5⅓ innings. Even in the 2019 Premier 12 final, he struck out all three batters, including Lee Jung-hoo, in the top of the 8th inning against Korea.
