Hiroshima Carp

  • First round draft pick Takayoshi Noma used an eighty-four centimeter and an eighty-six centimeter bat when he played college ball. Both bats weighed over 900 grams. He narrowed it down to the eighty-six centimeter bat with modifications: a thinner handle, weighted toward the barrel, and about one centimeter shorter. He also plans to choke up on the bat a little.
