Kimiyasu Kudo gave a lecture for Orix Life Insurance yesterday and spoke about his dreams of pitching in the Majors.
I'm thinking about going to America. If I get an offer, I'm sure it'll be a minor league deal, but age doesn't really matter over there. I'd like to pitch well and make my Major League dreams come true.
He apparently didn't offer any explanations on how, but it does appears as though he's thinking about flying out to the US sometime around February. Kudo also said that he was working out with the hopes of pitching off a mound in February (he's currently playing catch at a distance of 50 meters).
