I didn’t care about the batter’s trip to Japan, which was better than Thames.
Japan didn`t care.”
Justin Smok, a 35-year-old slugger with 196 home runs in the Major League Baseball, signed with the Yomiuri Giants this season. Smok said, “I’ve never actually thought about the Japanese league 토토사이트
Smoke made the remarks in an interview with the U.S. media ‘Charleston Postcare’ on the 17th (Korean time). Because of Corona 19, the free agent (FA) market froze, forcing him to give up the Major League. He will be wearing the same uniform as Eric Thames (35), who made a comeback in the Major League after settling down in the KBO League.
“About a week after the season, the agent recommended Japan. I heard it could be a good opportunity. “To be honest, Japan was a place that I didn’t even think about at first,” he said.
The situation was bad to insist on the Major League. “Because of the Corona, the negotiations between big FA players such as Trevor Bauer and Masahiro Tanaka have been slow down. There was a club that showed interest to me, but that was it. My wife also thought Japan positively. “I started to seriously think about going to Japan.”
The Yomiuri Giants’ active courtship moved Smoke’s heart. Smoke said, “Yomi said we basically take care of anything, such as moving, living or eating. He will also be accompanied by an exclusive interpreter. “I think it will help almost every part of my life.”
Smoke’s wife also studied Japanese life hard. Smoke said, “I heard there’s Disney World 30 minutes away. “I think the school where my eldest daughter will attend was okay,” she said.
Yomiuri added Thames and Smoke all at once this season, burning their will to win the championship. Thames batted .241 with a .325 on-base percentage, a .467 slugging percentage and 96 home runs in the Major League. Smok hit 196 home runs with a .229 batting average, 0.322 on-base percentage, and a .419 slugging percentage.
