Softbank Hawks outfielder Kensuke Kondo (30) was a typical middle-distance hitter with good contact until last year. He hit 52 home runs in 11 years with the Nippon Ham Fighters from 2012 to last year. The 11 home runs in 2021 are the most home runs in a season.
He has a good pitching plan and has a high on-base percentage. Ranked first in on-base percentage in the Pacific League for two consecutive years from 2019 to 2020. In 2019, he walked -0.422 with 103, and in 2020, he walked -0.465 with 89.
He raised his batting average to .300 in 2015 and 2018-2020. He ranked 3rd with 302 6 li in 2015, 30 2 ri in 2018, 30 4 ri in 2020, and 6th in 2019 with 3 0 2 ri.
He hit the market as a free agent last offseason. A total of five teams, including the original team Nippon Ham, competed to catch Kondo. His price soared. He eventually signed a 7-year contract with ‘big money’ Softbank for 5 billion yen (about 45.1 billion won). It is the highest amount in Japanese professional baseball.
He moved to a new team and changed his batting style. Last winter, he built up his muscles and added strength to his swing. He transitioned from a middle-distance hitter to a long-distance hitter. The new attempt led to successful results.
Chiba Lotte Marines away game held on the 25th. Playing as a left fielder, Kondo hit his 24th home run of the season. 0
In the top of the second inning when the score was tied at -0, he had a fierce battle with Chiba Lotte left-handed pitcher Kazuya Ojima as the lead hitter. On the 7th pitch, he pushed a low-course fastball in the middle and led to a left-handed home run.
On September 21, he hit No. 23 against Chiba Lotte and added a home run in three games. In the last batting line in the top of the 9th inning, he reached base with a heavy hit and scored. In the fifth inning, he added an RBI on a sacrifice hit, and reached base in his remaining two at-bats on a walk and a bases-loaded base hit. 2-for-5, 2 hits, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored.
In 135 games until the game against Chiba Lotte on the 25th, he recorded a batting average of .301 (141 hits in 469 at-bats), 24 home runs, 84 RBI, and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.951. His scoring average is .379.
In the first year of changing teams, a ‘triple batting crown’ is in sight. His batting average is 2nd by 6, his home runs are tied for 3rd by 1, and his RBI is 4th by 4. On-base percentage (0.427) and slugging percentage (0.525) are overwhelmingly first. It is a great performance worthy of the enormous ransom.
Kondo played a key role in Japan’s victory at the WBC (World Baseball Classic) held last March. During his time at Nippon Ham, he played as the number 2 hitter right in front of his junior Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels).Second-place Softbank, which won 10 to 1, earned its second consecutive win over Chiba Lotte. Chiba Lotte lost 3rd place to the Rakuten Eagles and fell to 4th place.
