“More name on TV with baseball”
Sugiya, who is popular for his bright characters, also has a presence on TV variety shows, and in the “Real Baseball BAN” project of “Tonneruzu’s Sports King is Me !!” (TV Asahi), Ishibashi, a senior at Teikyo High School. He played an active part as a member of the team led by Mr. Takaaki (60).
Sugiya’s off-variety show appearance was customary, but according to sports newspaper reports, Sugiya has been notified by director Tsuyoshi Shinjo (49) that he will not appear on the off-variety show.
When the announcer Norio Yoshikawa, the moderator of the program, touched on the topic of Sugiya’s variety show appearance NG, Mr. Morimoto, who is also a senior at Teikyo High School, pointed out that “In the case of Kenshi, I want you to leave a record in baseball.” However, he developed his theory as follows.
“He’s acting like a TV person, so it’s not a performance. If you want to do a performance, you have to play baseball. You don’t play baseball. That’s a bit strange. If it’s only on TV, it’s on TV. Isn’t it a person? I’m a baseball player, so I’d like to show more performance in baseball with the name that I made use of on TV. ”
“(Director Shinjo) should have bought a fist.”
In addition, “Kenshi is a player who is lucky to have a contract this year. Even if you look at the achievements. It’s a really tough word. He continued to make harsh results, “said Sugiya.
Sugiya participated in 54 games this season, his 13th year as a professional player, with a batting average of .117, two home runs, and nine RBIs.
Mr. Morimoto explained the reason why Director Shinjo issued a ban on variety shows, “Mr. Shinjo should be the director and buy a fist. I definitely want such a bright character.” I think it’s a message that I should make more flowers bloom in baseball, “he explained,” I want Kenshi to do his best, and I want him to do his best as a junior of Teikyo and a junior of Fighters. ” ..
