Pretty sweet, but the outfield wall is no taller than him!

nice wall climb and grab

I wish Carp games were easier to watch online, only one of the two Japanese leagues really streams online :(

I found the crowd reaction interesting. Polite clapping for the most part. Not what I'm used to in The States.

That was the most bizarre catch I ever saw. I watched it 10 times but the camera work was not all that good. Too far away with a quick cut in the middle of the play. I would think a camera happy country would have a few more angles for the viewers.

Nice catch and all , but the wall is so short I am not overly impressed, if it had been an MLB stadium and he could do that, now that would be impressive!! Are all japanese fields like that, short wall in outfield?

Best line of the article:

"Yeah, there's probaby some Nippon Professional Baseball fan that's sitting at home right now and complaining that Akamatsu's UZR really isn't all that special"
