A new Kirin beer TV commercial featuring Ichiro was added to the domestic market on Friday.
I caught the tail end of an interview with Hisanori Takahashi on FujiTV's Sport (すぽると！). Here were some of the things he mentioned:
He considers hit out pitch the sinker. But he also would like to challenge someone with his fastball.
He named Jamie Moyer as a pitcher he thought he was most similar to.
He wants to start, but would also pitch in relief if that's the only job available to him.
