Hara works with Sakamoto behind closed doors

by on Oct.07, 2010 @ 2:26 pm, under NPB

Tatsunori Hara worked with Hayato Sakamoto at Giants Stadium behind closed doors for about an hour on Wednesday (10/6).  And while it isn't certain what the two worked on, it is assumed that Hara was giving Sakamoto pointers on hitting.  A number of reports also mention Hara tossing BP to Sakamoto at a distance of about 10 meters.

Sakamoto has been struggling at the plate as of late and has just 1 hit in his last 21 trips to the plate (5 games).  He has also been hitting a lot of fly balls / pop-ups: 15 fly ball outs over his last 21 trips to the plate.
