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


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".

loling at the Justin Timberlake comparison. 
if Kame's not an idol, he's going to pursue baseball. He's soo much enjoying this job, lol.

thanks to OP for posting this up and thanks to you for the ridiculously cute gif.

All the feels in this world. May this turtle-san be happy with whoever he is with atm. ( I like people with non-existing/reported scandals, makes me feel like his works are more important than the person himself). This is just me being biased over Kamenashi's flawless self. What can I do? How can I not? :)

I have the feeling that the only entries from arama (in the past 2 weeks) which didn`t contain gossips or bad things are this one and the one with the congratulations for the 6th anniversary of our boys XD

"I like people with non-existing/reported scandals, makes me feel like his works are more important than the person himself)" Oh I totaly agree with you <3

And you can`t do anything, cause we are absolutely lost in our beautiful world full of fangirling for this gorgeous guy XD
(oh god, I`m starting to see confetti again...)

I was trying to remember any his scandal from last year, but failed miserably...
