Takeya Nakamura (Seibu) may not be interested in playing in any more international games, according to Sponichi. When asked about his thoughts on the WBC in 2017 during a talk event on November 23, Nakamura said he "[does] not really want to participate [in the tournament]." He added, "I did not accomplish anything [during the Premier 12] and I was the last hitter of the semifinals game. I did not have fun."
In another article, Nakamura explained that felt good while playing games in Taiwan, but tensed up when he returned to Japan because he was playing on home ground. He also said that he would try to have a good season next year so that he might make Samurai Japan roster for the 2017 WBC.
