“I don’t care about raising the body of Otake.”
Mr. Yuuki seems to be a hardcore Hanshin fan, as he wrote in the self-introduction column on Twitter that “Torayoshi is his main business and his side business is a gravure idol, 40-50 games a year in the field, Hanshin Tigers fan history 18 years”.
While Hanshin and Yakult are competing for the lead, in the match held on the afternoon of the 24th, Hanshin jumped out a long-awaited 3-run home run to rookie Teruaki Sato, who had been silent, and Hiroshima 7-2. Victory. If Yakult loses to the Giants in the night game on the same day, Hanshin’s victory will be even closer, so a rare phenomenon has occurred in which Hanshin fans pray for the Giants’ victory.
It seems that Hanshin fan Yuuki also visited Jingu Stadium knowing this.
“I came to Jingu to support the giants. I won’t give up until the end !!!”
“It’s natural, but I’m supporting Yomiuri locally for the first time in my life. I’m devoting myself to the soul of a fierce tiger, so I’m in trouble if I don’t really win.”
As such, he tweeted that he was supporting the giant for this day only.
However, the giant, who scored 6 points in the bottom of the 4th inning, managed to get away with Taishi Hirooka’s 3-run home run, but was defeated. The match ended in a 6-4 victory for Yakult.
On the 24th, the giant veteran Kan Otake (38), who has announced his retirement for this season, had the last pitch, so even though it was an enemy land, pitcher Kan Otake was raised after the match.
Yuuki expressed his disappointing feelings on Twitter with a video showing pitcher Otake raising his body.
“I didn’t care about raising Otake’s body, so I wanted him to win …”
The tweet received many criticisms for lacking respect for players who have fought professionally. Not only giant fans but also many professional baseball fans are conspicuously saying that they felt uncomfortable.
“I thought it was really rude to the pitcher who worked hard as a professional.”
“I understand that I want Hanshin to win the championship, but I don’t want to say that it doesn’t matter to the players who worked hard in the harsh world of professional baseball.”
“I don’t care, do you know the rigors of professional baseball?”
In response to criticism, Yuuki updated Twitter. He argues against the retirement of giant Yoshiyuki Kamei and Miwako Yamanaka, who has been the “Miss Uguisu” in the giant-sponsored game.
However, after that, Mr. Yuuki turned around and published an apology as follows.
However, this apology tweet was also criticized as “What performance?” “At least follow the rules of the stadium.” At Jingu Stadium, “movement to places other than those listed on your admission ticket” is prohibited. Yuuki has deleted a series of posts, including an apology tweet, by noon on the 25th.
