Sanspo has posted some comments from Tsuyoshi Nishioka's meeting with the press on Wednesday.
When did you decide you wanted to be posted?
It wasn't until we became champions that I felt this way. The stuff that was mentioned before that caused a fuss for the club, the players, and the fans. And for that I apologize.
When did you start dreaming about the Majors?
It was when [Hideo] Nomo was pitching in the US and I thought how amazing that was. I thought I wanted to try that one day. That was a dream I had ever since I was a kid.
Now you have to wait for the club to reply...
Regardless of whether or not it's a yes or a no, I just want to continue to enjoy playing baseball next year. I'll of course be happy if I get a positive reply.
Which club would you like to play for?
There is none. This isn't free agency, so I can't pick. If I can play in the Majors, I'll be happy anywhere. If there's a team that'll take me, I'll do my best for them.
You'll be attempting this at a young age.
There haven't been any successful Japanese infielders yet. Of course I know it won't be easy. I'd like to attempt this while I'm still young and change that image about Japanese players.
