Yusei Kikuchi hit 153km/h on the radar gun.
12 NPB clubs were in the stands, including 8 reps from MLB clubs.
Here are some of their comments:
Hanshin Tigers Scout Takayoshi Nakao: "We won't let him go to the Majors. We want him to stay in Japan, no doubt!"
NY Mets Brian Lamb (?): "It was the first time I saw him pitch and he was amazing. He's got a strong arm and good balance. And he's got good control over his lower body."
Cleveland Indians scout Dave DeFreitas: "If he wants to go to the Majors so badly, it's our job to go and see him."
