Aoki as a Leader

For anyone who’s interested, the Japan Times published a piece about Tokyo centerfielder Norichika Aoki, whom we here at the Tsubamegun think just might be the best position player in the NPB these days. The piece, based on an interview with Aoki prior to the Swallows’ recent home loss to the Yokohama BayStars, focuses on his leadership role on the squad – both at the plate and in terms of giving advice to younger players.
