Aerodeliria Verified Member Posted March 16 Share Posted March 16 Of course, all of Japan is buzzing with Ohtani fever, so every win means highlights a plenty the next day. He wasn't particularly sharp against Italia, but ground out a few innings for the fans. Murakami is the guy everyone should start to fear (56 HRs in 2022). He was struggling at the plate for the first three games but appears to have found his groove the last two games. Japan also has a new hero in Nootbar. After his big base hit against Korea, he did the pepper mill grinder move with his hands, which has made him instantly beloved and has started a craze among fans and other players. (News stations have been going to local stores showing the various pepper mill grinders that can be purchased.) Everytime he gets a hit, the cameras make sure to show his Japanese mother in the stands madly cheering. That is just to say that it's a big deal here in Japan.
