Shingo Usami: Did You Know

Milestones

August 18, 2017 vs Yokohama at Tokyo Dome – Usami blasted a two-out, walk-off two-run home run off Yoshiki Sunada in the bottom of the tenth. He became the fifth player in Yomiuri Giants’ franchise history to record a walk-off home run for his first career home run.

Usami is the forty-first player in NPB history to hit a walk-off for his first career home run. Of the forty players before him, only four were catchers: Isao Ito (1963), Chuichi Oshima (1977), and Yukihiro Ueda (1988).
