This season, Yamamoto teamed up with three catchers, Tongu, Fushimi, and Wakatsuki, to start the battery, and Wakatsuki wore a mask in all 11 games since the game against Softbank on July 9. There is a good chance of winning the Best Battery Award.

If you win the Season MVP, Sawamura Award, Best Nine, Golden Glove Award, and Battery Award in the four crowns you have already obtained, you will have a total of “9 crowns”. There are also Climax Series MVPs and Japan Series MVPs in the postseason. How much honor will the right arm get in the 2021 season?
