In September 2020, in the program of "Sunday Morning"New coronavirusAnnounced that he was infected with.According to Uehara, after returning from the United States, a PCR test at Narita Airport was found to be positive.He was asymptomatic, so he only had to quarantine at the hotel for a few days..

fundamentallyFour seamとFork ballThrow on the axis. This was the time of the giants before the major transferCut ballWas throwing mixedHowever, after the major transfer, the proportion other than the former two types is low.. The most remarkable thing is thatBall controlIt is a pitcher with many strikeouts and few walks. NPB in 10 yearsStrikeout rate7.99 (mainly closer played in 2007, strikeout rate 9.58), MLB 8 years strikeout rate 10.7, 2013 record a maximum of 12.2.. Divide the strikeout, which is an indicator of ball control, by the given ballK / BBSo, among the pitchers who threw more than 1000 innings in their lifetime, it was the highest in Japan professional baseball history, 6.68 (2nd place isMasayuki Dobashi4.61, 3rd placeMasahiro TanakaIs 4.50, and Uehara's figure is outstanding）So, even in the major leagues, the highest total of 2014 among pitchers who threw more than 100 innings until 8.96 is recorded... In 10 years of innings in Japan for 1549 years, the number of walks was only 206. The total four-ball rate in Japan was 1.20, and it was called "precision machinery".Kitabeppu studies1.90,Masaaki KoyamaIt is well above the record of the famous pitchers of 1.80. Also, because it is easy to one bound originallyStormingAlthough it is a fork pitcher that tends to have a lot of, Only 2018 in 20 years until 19 (11 in NPB 10 years, 9 in MLB 9 years).
The proportion of flying balls is highFly ball pitcherKnown asOriginally, there was a tendency for a large number of home runs (the total home base hit rate in Japan was 1.1).).In the major era when he turned to relief, his total base hit rate was 1.12. In addition, the probability of being caught by Infield Fly was 23.0%, which was the No. 2013 major in 1 (halfway through the season)..
A teammate of the Orioles era and a catcherMatt Wheaters"It was a fun pitcher to receive because I threw it into the place I held it without any deviation."Say,Chicago White SoxThe pitcher coach also said, "There are certain batters who are misled by the form, but there are limited places to reach. That is why Uehara has been successful for many years, because of the good use of the splitter, The command (ability to throw to the target spot) is excellent.".
In addition to the above ball control, "If you get lost, just remove the plate"Since the pitching interval of each ball is very short and throwing strikes rapidly at a fast tempo, in the time of the giants there were often complete pitching wins in about 2 hours, July 1999, 7Yokohama Bay StarsIn the battle, he recorded a complete victory in 1 hour and 59 minutes. The number of balls per game is small, with the idea that "1 balls per batter. 5 balls in one inning will not leave you so tired the next day.".
The feature is that the takeback is small and the swing of the arm is fast.Tornado ThrowA little no windupThree QuarterThrow at. This throwing form is very smooth and does not seem to be very characteristic at first glance, but in the first half of the throwing motion the arm is hidden behind the body and can not be seen, and the ball holding is very short, so until the ball is released from the takeback Is short, and many major players said, "It's hard to see where the ball is coming from,"FastballIt is called "Deceptive" pitching form that makes you feel more than the actual ball speed.. Outfielder of a colleagueDaniel NavaSaid, "I don't have time to see", "I don't know until the middle fastball has been half thrown since being thrown,"David RossEven so, he said, "At the moment of throwing, it is impossible to determine whether the ball is a strike or not unless it is a little off.".
The pitching form matches the MLB's hard and sloping mound when coming to the major and struggling with flesh.Jake PeabyBy changing to a pitching form that jumps from the mound with reference to, the burden on the thighs was reduced and at the same time the force was put on the ball..
As mentioned above, the distribution is half and half with four seams and forks.It is an excellent merit of Uehara that they are exquisitely divided and that they can be thrown in exactly the same way. Of the YankeesLyle Overbay"Not only the fastball but also the splitter is thrown to both sides. The fastball and splitter draw a similar trajectory, so it is difficult to determine."Say According to Scout's opinion, "splitter is always the key", and ball distribution is controlled by Uehara.
A fastball throws four seams with two types of grips. Says two seams can't be thrown[Source required].. The fastest was 153km/h measured during college. But the giant era[When?]The average ball speed was around 140km/h. After the major transfer, the fastest 92mph (about 148km/h), the average ball speed is 88-89mph (about 142-143km/h)And the second slower (in 10) of the closers with more than 2013 savesAs he himself said, "I am moving various things", in addition to making slight changes, I also change the speed of the pitching form and miss the timing of the batter. The fastball miss rate of 2013% in 36.3 was the third major. Uehara's fastball was said to rotate well and floated, and a colleague's catcher, Wheaters, said, "The bigger thing in the case of Koji is that the fastball and the splitter are fed from the same swing of the arm. The pitching motion is dazzling. For that reason, when I release my hand, it looks exactly the same sphere.''And also outfielderNick Markeikiss"Koji's ball has the impression that it jumps toward you as soon as you release it from your hand. The ball is released near the batter and rotates well, so it looks faster than the speed gun shows. That part of the magical way of throwing might be beneficial," he said.. Of the Orioles eraBack show walterSaid that sharpness was a "sharp knife".
2017 year 6 month 16 dayPiratesIn the battle, against Uehara who threw well around the fastball[Annotation 5], An American commentator said, "Uehara is probably the most frustrating pitcher for a major batter. The ball speed is 85-86mph (about 137-138km / h), but they miss the fastball. It's a very dazzling arm movement. A quick arm swing. The ball definitely arrives faster than the batter expected. ""It's 15mph (about 24km / h) slower than the libero fastball, but the batter's reaction looks almost the same. It's crazy," said the left arm, who pitched in 4th place on the day.Felipe LiberoThe 100mph (about 161km/h) Australian fastball and the 130km/h fastball in Uehara emphasized that they were controlling the batter with unchanging power, and praised it.
Fork balls have different heads, such as one with a large head, one with a small head, one with a chute rotating to the right, and one with a slider rotating to the left.. Uehara's fork came to be called the split after the major transfer, and Uehara himself is also called the split. The overbay is sometimes moving like a 2 seam and sinking. If it is limited to the splitter,Roger ClemensI think it is similar to In the same way, it sinks while rotating like a 2 seam, and the low ball control was also wonderful. I think it's a "slow Clemens ball." I think the way the ball is released from the hand and the rotation are very similar.However, since the actual Uehara split is a so-called one-seam rotation, it can be split left and right, and neither rotation nor grip is that of a two-seam. Red Sox pitcher coachJuan Nieves"I can not just drop the split but also throw it on the course that I want, so the batter can not handle it too."And his colleague outfielderMike Carp"It is overwhelmingly different from other pitchers in that it can control the split.".. In 2013, the miss rate of the split was 43.4%, which was the second largest major pitcher with over 200 pitches... Sometimes splits that do not fall and only slow down,PITCH f/xThen.Change upIt may be judged that, but in the actual battle will not throw a changeup.
As for other types of balls,sliderThrow a little, very rarelycurveMay be thrown.Immediately after the major transfer, I was practicing the "one-finger curve" that I throw with only my index finger and thumb in the training before the camp... However, the control of this curve has not been decided yet, and the ball that became the first dead ball in the major is one of the curves that threw only three balls in the 2013 season... I learned a fork only after I was a professional, and in my amateur daysMussulaとKnuckle curveWas the axis. However, the knuckle curve was the first match for a professional, and the first match for Hanshin (at that time)Makoto SasakiWas beaten up by a senior catcherShinichi MurataI have not thrown since I was pointed out by "Iranyaro?"[Annotation 6].. In addition, he said, "I learned how to throw a slider when I learned a fork," so I sealed the slider for several years after I entered the professional field... I'm still not good at sliders,TwitterAnd juniorWith DarvishHave been refused asking for a handshake.. The cut ball was thrown at the time of the giants, but it is sealed by the major because it will affect the straightness of the next throw and the sharpness of another change ball.
Success in international competitions
The person himself humbly says, "I just blessed my opponent."In international matches with foreign teams, 25 matches, 12 wins, 0 losses, and 2 saves, counting from university days, boasting an unrivaled strength of "no international loss".
In 1997, elected to represent Japan in the third summer of university,The 13th IBAF Intercontinental CupIn the finalキ ュ ー バIn the battle, he threw 5 times and 1/3 and threw a good run with 1 goal, stopping Cuba's consecutive win record at 151..
2003 years,Athens OlympicsIn the Asian qualifying, he was the starting pitcher for the China match, winning one in seven innings.. 2 wins in the main match, 1 wins and 0 losses, ERA 2.08Contributed to the bronze medal.
2006 yearsWBCIn the 2nd league first match, the United States game was not able to win or lose, but he threw a good shot with 5 goal in the 1th inning, and also in the semifinals and South Korea match with 0 wins and 2 losses in the match results He contributed to Japan's first victory by winning two tournaments.
Recorded 2007 save in the Beijing Olympics Asian qualifying round in December 12. Although there were many criticisms due to the poor performance of the 1 season, he was the coach of the Japan National Baseball Team for the Beijing Olympics.Senichi HoshinoNegotiated directly and appointed as a closer and pitcher captain.Beijing OlympicsThen pitched in two games and recorded an ERA of 2 and 0.00 save.
He announced that he would retire after the Beijing Olympics.Said it was proactively considering the 2013rd WBC in 3 if requested... About the 2017th WBC of 4, I wrote in the blog that "I'm sure I want to come out", Withdrawal due to Cubs' intention.
The inscription on the right is "Weed soul”.
Seniors in the age of giantsKiyoshi HashimotoAccording to Uehara, "Ultimate unwillingness" and "a baseball boy who purely likes baseball".. Because of his cheerful personality, you can playfully hug him. drunkIchiroOr post a picture that you hug, After the match, the hug after the match was sensationalized by the American media.
Originally, there was a strong commitment to the starting lineup, and Uehara himself said, "I like the starters the most." The reason why I went to the US and contracted with Baltimore Orioles while the limit theory was whispered in Japan (as a starter) was because Orioles swallowed the condition that priority was given to the appointment as a starter... He was not convinced that he was used as a restraint at the Giants and Olympics representatives. Converted to relief in 2009. The following year, he returned to the starting line at his own request, but at the MLB, after the second year, he was relocated to relief, and he began to admire the importance of the relay and respected it.Masahiro TanakaGot angry after seeing an article that was "relegated" to an intermediary.. "Obviously, it becomes an article only when struck"From the complaint that the media handling is small, complaining of the harshness of the relay jobThe information is transmitted by himself explaining all pitches on his blog.
In 2010Lupin IIII cut my hair short like..The reason for extending the sideburns at that time is to make the other team remember the name.However, after a while, he gradually "did not know his direction", so from 2013 he shaved his beard and sideburns.However, it has a good reputation for "looking younger" and has become a prominent figure in the Boston Red Sox, where most of the players had a beard this year... The Red Sox teammates were surprised when the reporter told them that Uehara had a beard that didn't grow as much as Tazawa, and that he once had a good beard..
Uehara's success in the second half of 2013 was described by the media in various ways. "Strike machine", "Mr. Automatic", "Unflappable", "untouchable", "simply unstoppable", "the sixth sense", "Deceptive",Ninja', "Unhittable God-Creature", "Yoda with a splitterYoda)I was given as many praises as I could think of.
Furthermore, in Boston, Uehara's actions were recognized as enlivening the Red Sox, and he liked the following 10 features with pictures as the local newspaper listed..
- He loves high five.
- His sideburns are the best.
- Gloves with his name and the Japanese flag were banned by bad guys.
- After deciding to win, he hugs like Ari Gold.
- He is a treasure trove of guts poses.
- The appearance of him after throwing is like the climax scene of a drama, one by one.
- He is happy to help others. This is the essence of the relief pitcher.
- His face accurately represents his emotions.
- His enthusiasm is infected.
- He is really excited about the victory. And after a day, he seems to be the right type for his teammates.
David Ortiz, the 2013 World Series MVP, touched not only on his grades but also on his personality, "the best man as a pitcher and as a human being."Even so, I sent the greatest compliment. Ortiz of the same grade is on good terms both publicly and privately, and is a family relationship. During the season, when the team won and then lined up to give a high five, they played with which one would touch the opponent's crotch first. NHK-The reason why he started to perform in the post-season was that Uehara leaned against Ortiz because he was too tired (mentally) to afford to play. Became an interviewer with a special program of BSTakeshi TaguchiConfessed to.

Posting transfer problem
He has had strong hopes for majors since he joined the team, and in 2004 he directly appealed to the major transfer in 2006 by the posting system. He even offered to reduce the annual salary of 3 million yen at that time by 3500 million yen and pay a penalty for four years until he acquired the FA right., The team leaders stubbornly refuse to tolerate the use of the posting system and are "selfish"It developed into an emotional conflict with the front desk because it was described as. That season, I entered the camp without a contract negotiation. From this year when the posting transfer was refused to the following year, the media's tone was harsh because his grades fell due to injuries. In the end, he made a major transfer after acquiring overseas FA rights in 2009 (five years later), and he still insists on enforcing the "Posting 5 Teams Unified Rule"..

OverthrowIn the pitching form, the average ball speed is about 149 km/h in the heydayWas recording the fastest 156km/hstraightIs the greatest weapon, and the changing ball isfork,curve,sliderManipulated.
The feature of the straight is that it “stretches” so that it floats up near the batter., From the ball muscle/sphereFireball straightWas called.. When throwing a straight, use a unique grip with the index finger and the middle finger aligned and in perfect contact., At the time of release, throw the ball as if you were crushing it, keeping in mind that it will emerge like a ping-pong ball... Also, in order to release the ball as early as possible, create a wide stride of 7 feet from the pitcher plate to the left foot..In order to further shift the timing, the opening of the body, the swing of the arm, and the release point are slightly changed while feeling the timing of the batter's swing and the time until the ball reaches the catcher mitt..
Kiyohara KazuhiroPraised Fujikawa's straight as "the number one (straight) of 20 years I have seen.Has experience with Fujikawa at 2006 WBCAlex RodriguezSaid, "I've never seen such a straight. It's coming up from below.".. I often received a straight from Fujikawa as a catcherYano"Will not die in professional baseball-a magic ball named straight"In the special feature of "If you say to the exaggeratedMagic ballIs close to. Even if a professional player is waiting straight, he can get rid of it. There is no such pitcher in the current professional baseball world. Definitely the number one straight".
Alex RamirezThe result of the match against him was poor, with a total of 49 at bats and 17 hits, with a batting average of 3%, 4 minutes and 7 hits.However, Ramirez says he is the best pitcher of the closers he has played against..
During the period from 2005 to 2012, when he was active as a main relief pitcher in NPB, he recorded a high total strikeout rate of 12.81. Until 2010, the straight miss rate was about 30% (league average about 8%)... However, in 2011 the average ball speed dropped to about 147 km/h, And the miss rate dropped to less than 20%.Tommy John surgeryAfter returning from 2014, the average ball speed was 90.6 mph (about 145 km/h)[Note 2]And further reduced..In this way, while the average straight ball speed has been declining year by year, the number of strikeouts exceeds the number of pitches every year. In 2011, by using a lot of changing balls, we increased the number of missed swings especially with forks and kept a high number of strikeouts of 12.59., In 2018, he was active as a reliever boasting high pitching skills, such as recording the top batting average of .40 among Central League relief pitchers who pitched in more than 159 games... During the start-up re-conversion era between joining Kochi and immediately after returning to Hanshin, he used a lot of sliders and curves..
Fujikawa is particular about holding out with a strikeout and fly as a pitcher, but this is the idea because he wants to eliminate the external element of the fielder's defense power, and the basis of that idea is:MLBMainstreamFIPThere is.
Survey by daily sports
"Nikkan Sports』Osaka version is uniqueSpeed gunIn the 2006 All-Star Round 2Mark KroonIn a straight comparison between Fujikawa and Fujikawa, the difference between the initial speed and the final speed was about 10km / h for Kroon and about 13km / h for Fujikawa.Looking at the release points of Fujikawa and Kroon, Fujikawa has 10cmIt was before.Fujikawa is 184 cm tall (at that time) and Kroon is 188 cm, which is not much different.ABC RadioAccording to the announcer's interview at, the average pitcher puts his stepping foot six and a half feet from the plate, but Fujikawa was the seventh foot..
Survey by Ryutaro Himeno
Broadcast on August 2006, 11TV Asahiof"News station』" featured in the program "Professional baseball does not die-Magic ball named straight"Then, by applying excessive rotation to the ballMagnus effectThe hypothesis was proposed that by lowering the fall of the ball than a general player by generating a lift force that is perpendicular to the direction of travel and causing the batter to miss the ball. Computational fluid dynamicsRyutaro HimenoAs a result of the survey by, the average number of straight rotations of 15 professional baseball players is 1 rotations per second (37).rpm), On the other hand, it turned out that Fujikawa's straight makes 1 rotations (45 rpm) per second.Also, while the inclination of the rotation axis of a ball thrown by a general pitcher is about 2700 degrees with respect to the horizontal axis, with KroonDaisuke MatsuzakaWas about 10 degrees.. However, in the case of Fujikawa, it was about 5 degrees, which is less than the two people., It was considered that the lift force was generated more efficiently on the ball..
-Kochi City Johoku Junior High SchoolI'm fromRyoko HirosueIs a classmate in middle school.. When I joined the Hanshin group, I was commented, "I am as happy as myself," and received a letter of encouragement...Also, former ocean and former ChunichiHiroaki NakayamaIs from same middle and high school.
On September 3, 1995 (Heisei 7) when I was in the third year of junior high schoolKagamigawa(Kochi CityKamimachiBy doing rescue activities for a man who fell to 3-chome), with three classmatesKochi police stationReceived a letter of appreciation from..阪神時代の2005年10月、その際に高知署交通課長として藤川たちに感謝状を手渡した警察官の男性（取材当時はIn October XNUMX during the Hanshin era, a male police officer who handed a letter of appreciation to Fujikawa and others as the chief of the transportation section of the Kochi station (at the time of the interview)Kochi Prefectural PoliceHeadquarters General Affairs Section Manager)Kochi newspaper"He was a tall boy," he said of Fujikawa at the time..
Originally, he entered the field as a starter, but from the beginning, there was a tendency that the ball power and ball control dropped significantly after the middle stage. In 2004, I was appointed as a military coachAkada OkadaBased on this trend, decided to convert Fujikawa, who had been sluggish in the starting lineup, to a rescue staff.. Second Army Pitcher coach at the timeTakashi YamaguchiSent Fujikawa the advice, "Throw as if you were hitting the ball from above."Taking this opportunity, I remodeled it into a form that uses the lower half of the body to make a tame and throw it down without breaking the right knee too much while leaving a bend.By learning how to use the foot well, the ball speed increased sharply... By the way, as a pitcher who achieved 1000 strikeouts in the NPB's first official game alone, as of May 2017, he hasn't completed a single pitcher. From joining Kochi until just after returning to Hanshin, he was reconverted to the starter with the aim of reducing the burden on his right elbow undergoing Tommy John surgery..
Die in the 2005th inning against Giants on April 4, 21Full baseでKiyohara KazuhiroAgainst full countFork ballでStrikeoutHowever, after the match, Kiyohara said, "The pitching of a runaway hip, which is like throwing a fork in a full-count double-base run, is a judgment of a timid pitcher."Was abused. However, Fujikawa said, "Thanks to that one thing, I became obsessed with straightforwardness. I began to think that I had to constantly improve myself."When I played against Kiyohara again on June 6th, this timestraightTook a strikeout. Kiyohara said, "I'm completely lost. It's the best straight I've seen in 20 years."Praised Fujikawa.
- Scoreboard display name
In the Hanshin era, in 2010,Shunsuke FujikawaJoined the group.Originally, the notation on the scoreboard etc. would have been "Fujikawa ball" for the sake of distinction, but due to the wishes of the person himself, the notation should remain "Fujikawa" at the time of the contract agreement on January 2010, 1. It has been determined.. Therefore, in the 2010 season, Fujikawa Kyuji was distinguished as "Fujikawa" and Fujikawa Shunsuke was "Fujikawa Shun", but it was often described as "Fujikawa Kyoku" or "Kyoji" in the press. From 2011, when Shunsuke Fujikawa changed his registered name to "Shunsuke", both the registered name and the notation in the press have been unified to "Fujikawa"..
At the Koshien tournament in the summer of 1997, when I played at the same time as my brother Junichi, I used the notation "Fujikawa Kyu" (my brother is "Fujikawa Jun") on the Koshien Stadium scoreboard.
