Japanese professional baseball Tokyo Yakult Swallows heavy gunner Murakami Murakami Murakami, recently blasted out the 51st home run of the season, becoming following the "Godzilla" Matsui Hideki in 2002, the second time in 20 years that There are More than 50 bombs in a single season by Japanese local players, and even with a .341 strike rate and 125 points, becoming the "Triple Crown Champion" of the Japanese Central League, such a rough performance has also attracted the interest of many major league teams, and even in the future may trigger a wave of major league robbery battles.
Murakami Murakami, who graduated from Kyushu Gakuin College, joined the Yakult Swallows in 2018 as the first name in the draft, and last year he has shown the true color of a giant cannon, firing 39 home runs, and the main gun of the Tokyo Yomiuri Giants in the same city, Okamoto and Makoto, are tied for the Japanese professional home run king, and this year, at the age of 22, he became the youngest hitter in the history of Japanese occupation to hit a 50-bomber. And at present, Murakami only has a .353 batting rate behind the Japanese Ham Fighters Matsumoto Tsuyoshi, and the home run and the hit point are the highest in the japanese job, and it is very likely that after Nobuhiko Matsunaka of the Ōei Eagle in 2004, the Japanese professional baseball will once again hit the triple crown.
And Murakami's good performance, in addition to arousing the interest of major league teams, has also begun to have American media attention, such as CBS Sports with the title of "Chasing 60 Bombs Is Not Only Aaron Judge" to report Murakami Zonglong, the authoritative baseball media in the United States Sports News also introduced Murakami Zonglong with the title of "MLB will turn its attention to the 22-year-old Japanese genius".
But for Murakami Murakami, who is only 22 years old this year, it is too early to talk about major leagues, because Murakami, who officially stood in the Japanese first army in 2019, will not be able to qualify as overseas free agents until around 2028 at the earliest, and can sign contracts with major league teams at will, if he wants to enter the major leagues through the entry system before, he must wait until he is 25 years old to sign a major league contract, otherwise there is only the sweat and sweat salary of the minor leagues, but next year it is likely to represent Japan in the WBC Classic. Playing well at that time is also a good opportunity for him to increase his value.
