Nippon Ham Fighters: Sho Nakata wants to hit 30 homers

by on Jan.06, 2011 @ 11:29 pm, under NPB

Sho Nakata apparently wants to hit 30 homers this season.  And in order to help him hit that goal, he apparently took home a DVD containing footage of each of the 9 homers he hit in 2010.  After evaluating his "good" swing," he plans on comparing it to his "bad swing."  Nakata has also managed to gain about 6kg (from 87kg to 93kg) during the off-season so far and worked out for about 2 hours with Tomoaki Kanemoto at Athlete on Wednesdsay.

Earlier today, Nakata, Mitsuo Yoshikawa, and Takuya Nakashima worked out for about 3 hours at an indoor training facility in Miyakojima, Okinawa (playing catch, running, BP).
