Kamenashi Kazuya Throws First Pitch in Major League Baseball's Opening

Kame

KAT-TUN's Kamenashi Kazuya made his name known in Major League Baseball as he throws the ceremonial first pitch during Yomiuri Giants (Japan) vs Oakland Athletics (USA) Exhibition Game yesterday, Mar 25th.

As a Japanese tradition, the ceremonial first pitch will be thrown to opposing teams lead-off hitter. In the exhibition game, Kamenashi, wearing Giants' uniform, threw the first pitch to Oakland Athletic's hitter-Jemile Weeks.

"I didn't know who he was at first, but he's some big-time celebrity out here. For me to have that opportunity, it was an honor for me," Weeks said after he purposely missed Kamenashi's pitches.

Various American media who covered the event described Kamenashi as "A Japanese teen idol, strikingly well-coiffed actor, and to being Justin Timberlake of Asia".

Afterwards, Kamenashi returned to his MC duties for NTV's Going! and even had to chance to chat with Oakland A's Yoenis Cespedes, a professional baseball outfielder who is described as the "Best all-around player out of Cuba".

Why did western media always nicknaming the Asian artist with their artists name?

Justin Timberlake? Oh please, he's one and only Kamenashi Kazuya in the world, mind you.

"A Japanese teen idol, strikingly well-coiffed actor, and to being Justin Timberlake of Asia".

At least American Media didn't describe him as Justin Bieber of Asia. And lol Kame being a Japanese teen idol. Can't believe he's already 26 years old tbh :p

At least American Media didn't describe him as Justin Bieber of Asia.

My thought exactly. If they desribe him as Justin Bieber, I'm going to flipped! REALLY BAD!

So happy he could and be an idol, and continue to live his passion for baseball in a way ^^ I'm so proud of him also ;A;

"I didn't know who he was at first, but he's some big-time celebrity out here. For me to have that opportunity, it was an honor for me,"

Pretty sure Kame was fanboying all inside.


LOL at the description though ''A Japanese teen idol, strikingly well-coiffed actor, and to being Justin Timberlake of Asia".

I don't know what I like the most and make me laugh the most ? Japanese TEEN idol ? Being compare to Justin Timberlake ? ...

NO the '' STRIKINGLY WELL-COIFFED ACTOR'' Lolilol <3 // I wish he would cut his hair. I would literally die for a A pound no fukuin haircut 2.::

xD He was in US media without even asking for it


...

So jealous of my friend who were there T______T

Kameeee you go be happy with your baseball! <3
I just love how he is such a baseball freak. <3
taciturndream 27th-Mar-2012 12:17 am (UTC)
Yeah, plus dancing pretty boys are not really that common anymore since NSYNC, Backstreet boys and those bands, I think.
kazuya_raba 26th-Mar-2012 08:54 pm (UTC)
Y is JT the standard of American music? He is such a copycat. Yuck!

But Kame is as fly as ever!
partiallyhydro 26th-Mar-2012 09:06 pm (UTC)
Did this come on American tv? If I knew about it I would've watched T_T

lol Kame might look young, but he's not a teen anymore XD

javilind 26th-Mar-2012 09:25 pm (UTC)
I'm so proud of him, he's really becoming an image of Japan itself. I'm sure he'll end up being like known as Nakai :D

SOBS BB LOOKS SO HAPPY ;_;♥

lol, what. While everyone is freaking out about the JT comparison, here I am dying at the "strikingly well-coiffed actor" part. American media acknowledged his nice hair, oh god.
miiss_hachiiko 26th-Mar-2012 09:48 pm (UTC)
I'll revert to my baseball nerd side and say, 'WHY THE A's!?'. Seriously, they're so lucky to meet Kame. ;_;

If the SF Giants met Kame, I would've been much more happier with the result. I would've loved to see him interacting with Brian Wilson, Tim Lincecum, or Buster Posey. That would make my day.

Besides, Kame is too adorable and awesome to be compared to JT. D
