September 24 vs Orix at Kyocera Dome – Yasuda recorded the first four-RBI game of his career. He got the start at third, his first Ichi-gun game at a position other than designated hitter.
Yasuda became the fifth player drafted out of high school to record four or more RBIs in a game, first since Ginjiro Sumitani notched six on March 29, 2006.
Yasuda is interested in playing in the Majors. He sees it as part of a natural progression as an athlete (the desire to improve and become better).
