YouTube: Deaf pitcher at the Japan Series in 2012

May 2013

The following YouTube link shows Ishii* Yuya*, a professional baseballer pitching for the Nippon-Ham Fighters located in Hokkaido, Japan's northern island.

He made three batters strike out during the game against the Tokyo Giants at the 2012 Japan Series.

Ishii, 31, is currently in the ninth year, acting as a relief in the 2013 season.

The Japanese name is usually in order: one's last name comes first, and then the first name comes next.
