Craig Brazell returned to the US on board a Delta flight out of Narita Airport on Wednesday. Before leaving, he left the following comments with the media:
I would like to win [the home run] title. Passing Sadaharu Oh's mark would ultimately mean putting the record in the spotlight and I think that would be great. ... If you look at my stats, I think I put together a respectable season. ... But I'm not really satisfied with how things ended. ... I want to train even harder this off-season so that I can put up better numbers next year.
Brazell apparently plans on taking the rest of the month off before starting a training program on 11/1.
