Hirotaka Koishi set to join NTT Higashi Nihon

by on Dec.27, 2009 @ 4:28 pm, under College, Industrial

Rissho University graduate Hirotaka Koishi has decided to join NTT Higashi Nihon (Industrial League).  Koishi never submitted a letter of intent because he wanted to polish his skill set some more by taking part in the Industrial League first.


Nobuaki Nakabayashi was surprised he was never taken in the draft.  But he's now fully prepared to play for JFE Higashi Nihon over the next two years to work on his control.

    Dude, EVERYONE was surprised he wasn’t taken in the draft. Tomura a first-round pick and 7-year-pedigree ‘Bayashi not drafted at all? Talk about a bizarre change of events. JFE Higashinihon used to totally be the happy hunting ground for former Keio why-the-hell-wasnt-this-guy-drafted types, though, so he should fit right in (wonder if Okazaki-kun will still be catching next year, sigh).
