Yasutomo Kubo: Did You Know

Yasutomo Kubo makes slight changes to his approach in pitching based on stadium — he drops his arm angle in larger stadiums for more power and less control and is more about keeping the ball down low and getting ground ball outs in smaller stadiums.

From large to small: Nagoya Dome, Mazda Stadium, Koshien Stadium (short down the line, but deeper in the gaps), Yokohama Stadium, Tokyo Dome, Jingu Stadium.
