The 10,000th Giants home run ball will be put on display at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Tokyo. Nakai’s bat and batting gloves will also be on display. The exhibit will begin on October 19.
Nakai caught Toshiki Sakurai during fall camp on November 15, 2017. He did some catching when he was in junior high. The Yomiuri Giants are exploring the possibility of using him as an emergency back-up catcher.
Nakai is planning to take four different gloves with him to spring camp: first baseman’s mitt, second baseman’s glove, third baseman’s glove, and an outfielder’s glove.
