Shimauchi, who humbly says, “There is no other team that appreciates this,” is 30 years old in his ninth year as a professional. After working at Seiryo High School and Meidai, joined the team in 2011 in 6th place in the draft. At first, there were many seasons when he suffered from injuries and poor batting, but since 2016, the fifth year, he has participated in more than 100 games every year. He has consistently achieved good results every year and has played a central role in the team. This season, he was 5th in 69 games and 4th in 31 games, and played in a total of 114 games with a batting average of .281, an on-base percentage of .363, 8 home runs, 53 RBIs and 9 stolen bases.

Rakuten’s Hiroshi Abe, general manager of the team, who responded to the press after the negotiations, said, “I am an aspiring player and have evolved every year. What is the full condition in every game? Even if he didn’t have it, he always kept the will to play in the game and the level of performance that he could play in the game. I highly appreciate it as a team, “he explained,” I’m glad that he decided to stay. ” I broke it.

Shimauchi does not show a rugged place, has a laid-back mood, and makes unusual comments even during the season. The roots are gentle and the team is organized with casual care. Asamura, Suzuki Dai, Kishi, Wakui, Makita and other FA and trade “transfer teams” are in the main team, and the presence of the unborn island is valuable.

Shimauchi recalled, “I lacked the strength of the game this season. I want to hit more in the scoring position next year (batting average in the scoring position this season is .281).” Will the man who has accumulated more than the passing score steadily show a big explosion in his 10th year as a professional next season when he decides that he will not be able to approach the championship unless he makes a big success.
