Yet another news wherein Kame was able to live his baseball dreams in his own alternate universe…
Last Jan 5th, KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi Kazuya attended KIRIN‘s “5th Nodogoshi Yume no Dreams / Dream of Dreams vs All Stars ” at Tokyo Dome. Kamenashi pitched during the last round of the special match against former Giant’s Kiyohara Kazuhiro. The said face-off between Kamenashi (Yume no Dreams) vs. Kiyohara (Nodogoshi All Stars) was won by Kamenashi with a strike-out.
Kamenashi won his confrontation with Giant’s batter Kiyohara by pitching him with breaking balls. After the game, Kiyohara said that he was a bit disappointed, “I said that this is a serious match so I wonder is he became a bit coward by throwing breaking balls”. Kiyohara also provoked Kamenashi by saying, “Nomo* (Hideo) and Matsuzaka* (Daisuke) have fastballs matches against me”. Kamenashi admitted being “tense” upon seeing Kiyohara in larger-than-life that he promised that given another chance, he will only be pitching fastballs. Nonetheless, it has been a valuable experience for them and both exchanged firm handshakes.
Though Kamenashi won his confrontation with Kiyohara, “Nodogoshi All-Stars” still won the game in the end.
*Nomo Hideo and Matsuzaka Daisuke are both professional baseball players.
Hmmm….I smell BITTER!
