Baseball Player
    A New York Times article dubbed him ‘The Lost Yankee.’
    He was an overpriced free agent on the Yankees’ roster — and yet he lasted only 16 games.
    On the streets of NYC, he is sometimes mistaken for Hideki Matsui.
    Citing a lifelong dream to be in the American big leagues, he turned down an offer to return to his homeland.
    His teammates love his iPad.
    According to Brian Cashman, his fastball was slower than his car driving.
    Six of his seven NPB awards came in 2003 (he was a three-time strikeout champion in 2002, 2004, and 2006).
    He picked up enough English and Spanish to understand the dinner menu but not the Broadway shows.
    Eventually, thanks to their refusal let their busted money go to waste, he found a place on the Yankees’ farm team.
    Bobby Valentine said of him, ‘I’ve seen lefties with less stuff than he has have success in the majors.’
    A catcher on his farm team said, ‘For someone who doesn’t speak much, he certainly has a lot of funny one-liners.’
    He admits to not being a fan of the Yankees.
    In his last five years in the Japan Central League, three of which he led in strikeouts, he averaged 15 wins a season.
