Cuban star Frederick Cepeda came to Cuba on Sunday after his first foray into the Japanese Major Leagues with the iconic team Yomiuri Giants, which highlighted their great organization, systematic and rigorous training, as well as the quality of pitchers.
Cepeda noted that most of these pitchers in Japanese baseball have five different pitches on average, plus a full control of the strike zone, which greatly hinders the work of the hitters.
At the highest level of the professional league in Japan, Frederich Cepeda filed batting modest average of 194 product of 21 hits in 108 at-bats, including six home runs and 18 RBIs to be below the expectations of the Cuban fans.
Cepeda said he felt fine physically on his arrival in Japan, but the adjustment period was very short and that influenced the drop in performance, after which he became a player changes in a team of many stars, such as Yomiuri Giants.
After several months in the demanding Championship Asian nation, Cepeda wished to benefit from a period of rest for later incorporated into the National Baseball with Team Sancti Spiritus.
