2009 Tohto Fall League Best Nine DH Kudo to join Sumitomo Metal Kashima

by on Dec.28, 2009 @ 1:13 pm, under College, Industrial

Asia University graduate Koki Kudo is set to join the Sumitomo Metal Kashima baseball team (Industrial League) next year.

Kudo actually considered taking a step away from baseball and finding a regular job, but decided to keep his dream by agreeing to terms with Sumitomo.

Seems Sumitomo was impressed with Kudo's three game blast fest between 9/24-10/1.

9/24 vs Kokugakuin: 1-for-3, HR, RBI

9/29 vs Aoyama Gakuin: 2-for-3, HR, 4 RBI

10/1 vs Aoyama Gakuin: 2-for-3, HR, RBI

    Kudoh was already listed as joining Sumitomo Kashima in the issue of Daigaku Yakyu that went on sale a month and a half ago (he decided on it right after the final game of the season, after being passed up in the draft). I think your wording here is a little misleading — maybe “preparing to join” would be a little more accurate? Especially since he hasn’t actually graduated yet?
