Mazda All-Star Game 2012 Updates: July 24, 2012

by on Jul.24, 2012 @ 4:32 pm, under NPB

Some updates from July 24 (post will be updated throughout the day, as needed):

===

As a winner of the SKYACTIV Technology Award, Katsuki Akagawa (Yakult) received a brand new car.  One problem: he does not have a license.

Said Akagawa, "I do not have a driver's license.  I do plan on getting one this year though...  I will give [the car] to my parents."

Source: Daily Sports 7/24/2012

===

Akagawa became the fifteen player in All-Star history to toss three perfect innings and the first player in Swallows' history to toss three perfect innings during an All-Star game.

Central League pitchers also hurled nineteen consecutive shutout innings between the 2nd inning of Game 1 and the 2nd inning of Game 2.  That is the second longest streak in All-Star history (the PL holds the record with twenty-five consecutive shutout innings in 1952).

Source: Sponichi 7/24/2012

===

Yoshinobu Takahashi (Yomiuri) became the first outfield in All-Star history to commit two errors in one game: a fielding error in the 3rd inning and a fielding error in the 4th inning.  Source: Sponichi 7/24/2012

===

Kazuhiro Hatakeyama (Yakult) hit a home run during Game 3 on Monday and...

  • ...now has two career All-Star homers, which is good for second on Yakult's All-time list (behind Roberto Petagine's three and tied with Norichika Aoki and Alex Ramirez's two a piece).
  • ...gave the Swallows eighteen All-Star home runs.
  • ...made him the first Yakult to hit an All-Star home run out of the clean-up spot.
  • ...made him the first player from the Tohoku region to hit a home run in an All-Star game taking place at a stadium in the Tohoku region (out of four games, three in Sendai and one in Iwate).
  • ...gave him his first Tohoku region home run in twenty games (regular season and All-Star games).

Dai-Kang Yoh (Nippon Ham) hit his second All-Star home run of the year on Monday and became the seventh player to hit two or more home runs in his first All-Star Series (first in Fighters' franchise history).  He also joined Isao Harimoto (1962), Toshizo Sakamoto (1972), Katsuo Osugi (1972), Junichi Kashiwabara (1982), and Atsunori Inaba (2011) as the only players in Fighters' franchise history to hit two home runs during an All-Star Series (franchise high).

Yoh is the seventh player in franchise history to win an All-Star MVP and the third in franchise history to win an All-Star MVP in his first series (behind Harimoto in 1960 and Osugi in 1967).

Yoh also appears to be the first player in All-Star history to collect four RBIs out of the lead-off spot.  Source: Nikkan Sports 7/24/2012

Daisuke Miura (Yokohama) threw his slow curve fives times on Monday night.  Source: Nikkan Sports 7/24/2012

===

Kiyoshi Nakahata may not have wanted Miura (Yokohama) to pitch three innings on Monday.

When reporters informed him that Miura got hit in the 3rd inning, he replied, "I thought they decided on two innings.  There is [Miura's] next regular season game to think about so [I wanted him to pitch] as few innings as possible..."

Source: Sponichi 7/24/2012

===

Hitoki Iwase (Chunichi) did not make an appearance in any of the three All-Star games this year (discomfort in left elbow).  The last player that made the roster but did not play in any All-Star games: Kazuo Fukumori in 2007.  Source: Sports Hochi Osaka 7/24/2012

Chunichi Dragons

Kazuhiro Wada took extra BP after full team workouts at Yahoo Dome today.

Hanshin Tigers

The Tigers traveled from Sendai to Sapporo in the morning and worked out at Sapporo Dome in the afternoon today.  Everyone took part in the practices (veterans and foreign player included).

Yomiuri Giants

Nippon TV president Noritada Hosokawa told reporters that Giants' broadcasts are doing slightly better than last season at 10.3% (up about 1.2% from 9.1%).  Giants games have also done better at other channels across the board at 10%, up about 0.7% from last year.

Yakult Swallows

The Swallows announced that they'll be hosting Natsu-da! Kagairyoko-dan! H.I.S. Day (夏だ! 海外旅行だ! エイチ・アイ・エスDAY) on 6/5 (vs Rakuten).  Fans will be able to compete in mini games for prizes like autographed player memorabilia and free roundtrip tickets to Seoul, Korea.  One Piece's Luffy will throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Yokohama Bay Stars

Shogo Yamamoto will likely start tomorrow's game against the Orix Buffaloes.  He'll look to try and stop Yokohama's 10-game losing streak against Orix (going back to 2008).
