While Japanese professional baseball plays 143 games a year, Major League Baseball has 162 games and 19 games more. For that reason, it is sometimes said that MLB is more severe than NPB, but Mr. Kawasaki said, “The sense of distance is different.

Mr. Kawasaki says, “There is a private jet, or a big plane dedicated to it. Besides, not only players, managers, coaches, people behind the scenes, but also local TV crews ride on it,” he said on a large scale.

Some players are quietly reading books while playing games and playing music together. Each player has their own way of spending. At Blue Jays, a big 60-inch TV It was in the back, so we all relaxed by playing ice hockey video games, “he said happily.
In the comment section, there are voices such as “The scale is …” and “If you move from the west to the east in the evening, you will arrive at midnight” and “I like the game together”. It was being sent.
