    Shogo Akiyama agrees with Reds for three years, competing in the japanese uncivilised land
    Shogo Seibu Akiyama (photo taken on August 22, 2019)
    On the 30th, Seibu's outfielder Shogo Akiyama, 31, who is aiming to become an overseas free agent (FA) player, has reached a basic agreement with the Reds.

    It is expected to be a large-scale contract totaling more than 15 million dollars (approximately 1.65 billion yen) over the three-year total, including volume. In the five teams, including the Cubs and Diamondbacks, they narrowed it down to Le's army, which had the highest rating, and reached an agreement on terms. It is expected that he will undergo a medical check-up and sign a formal contract in the near future.

    - . . . . . . . .

    Akiyama narrowed down the new world to the Reds and reached a basic agreement on terms. To sum up the story of people involved in the U.S. baseball world, it is likely to be a large-scale contract of more than 15 million dollars (approximately 1.65 billion yen) including volume in a multi-year contract of three years. Compared to the four-year 2 billion yen that Seibu had presented in the residual negotiations, it is said that it is a favorable condition that exceeds on an annual salary basis. The Reds, who had led the other teams from the negotiation stage, fired the game as it was.

    The battle, which lasted about two months after the exercise of overseas FA rights in late November, has finally come to an end. He negotiated directly with four teams, including the Cubs, Diamondbacks and Rays, at a winter meeting in San Diego, USA, in early December. After that, the Padres also made a name for themselves, and there was a competition for the five teams to win. Among them, he chose the Reds, who have consistently shown high praise as the No.1 midfielder, and crossed the sea.

    The Reds are the only Japanese player in the 30 Major League baseball teams to have never played in the majors. It is based in Cincinnati, facing the Ohio River. Although he built a golden age in the 70s, the league title was the last time he left 90 years after winning the World Series. This season finished in fourth place in the Na League. In order to win the championship for the first time in 30 years, the team will rebuild their strength by reinforcing Akiyama as the team's axis.

    Akiyama continued his rehabilitation on October 31 st. 1st due to a broken right ring finger, and in a baseball class on 22 October, he lifted the ban on a soft-funder full swing. At that time, he also said, "I think i'll be all right about that," and showed off his steady recovery. The practice continues at the end of the year and the New Year. At the beginning of the year, he will enter the site, undergo a medical check-up, and sign a formal contract. The team color of the new heaven and earth is red. "Reds Akiyama" is born wearing a new uniform.

    Cincinnati Reds: 75 wins and 87 losses in the 19th season (4th in na League). He has won the league five times in the world, nine league titles, and made it to the postseason 15 times. The 19-year season's total annual salary of 134 million dollars (approximately 14.7 billion yen) ranked 14th out of 30 teams. It is based at the Great American Ball Park (Cincinnati). The coach is David Bell (75 wins and 87 losses). Its predecessor, Red Stockings, was founded in 1881 and boasts a history of 138 years, including its era. In the 1970s, Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, Pete Rose and others were called the "Big Red Machine" and were regulars in the postseason. The current team includes a first baseman bot who has been selected for six times at the ball, a third-baseman Moustakas, who has been selected three times, and Bauer, the starting right-hander of the pro-Japanese family who came to Japan now and gathered a lot of attention.

    Nikkan Sports is a legitimate news organization in Japan. It’s been around since 1945 and has a circulation of nearly 2M.

    My guess is that American journalists are going to be behind the Japanese journalists on stories like these.

    Did a Reds beat reporter tell you that? They’re probably just jealous that they missed out on yet another scoop.

    I’m excited about this, I know it’s silly but I’ve always wanted to watch a Japanese player on my team.

    Didn't they report on December 6, 1941 that peace was at hand?

    Nori Aoki in his Brewer days really sparked that interest for me.

    Yes, Shogo himself isn't really the headline here. I have no idea how the Japanese press got hold of the super-secret script for the forthcoming Terminator and Master and Commander crossover, but I can't wait. Take my money, Fandango!

    I think this is an overall cool story. Shogo will forever be known in Reds historical trivia as the team's first Japanese player. I'm excited to see him play!

    Re: Nikkan Sports: Reds Sign Shogo Akiyama

    Let's see it finalized before we start banging plastic noisemakers together. In the atmosphere of present, the Akiyama is now believed on by officials to have seen a deal to contract. This may help the CINREDS establish as a force in the divisional, and bring visions of the stalwart team of 1976 using Bench Morgan and Perez for batting victory. There are late enemies to come to Shogo for contract offer, although. If this is seen through by CINREDS they will have the piece of outfield needed to lift the ban on afterseason championship derby.
