Ready to feel old, Red Sox fans?
Kazuma Uehara endeared himself to Bostonians when he gave a memorable on-field interview after his dad closed out the 2013 World Series. It was a memorable moment, to say the least.
Take a trip down memory lane:
Well, Koji Uehara’s son now is a freshman with the IMG Academy Navy varsity team and carving up opposing hitters with a devastating breaking ball. Kaz, who both pitches and plays in the outfield, showed off his stuff Saturday night in an IMG win over in-state Florida rival North Point High School.
Check out this video Kaz shared Saturday night, along with his reaction:
Yeah, there’s another Uehara in the pipeline — and thank goodness for that.
Kaz’s father actually found a way to help the Red Sox earlier this month. As it turns out, Koji played a key role in Japanese free-agent pitcher Hirokazu Sawamura signing with Boston.
