Hanamaki Higashi High School Baseball Star Rintaro Sasaki Pursues Balance at Stanford University

Rintaro Sasaki: “My decision wasn’t just based on my baseball career.” Going to Stanford University: “I want to become a person who can also study.”

Rintaro Sasaki (18) of Hanamaki Higashi High School, who hit a total of 140 home runs, the most in high school history, and has decided to attend Stanford University in the US, responded to an interview at the school in Hanamaki City, Iwate Prefecture.

“I am fully aware that this is one of the top universities in the world,” he said of his determination, “I made this decision knowing that I wanted to work here.”

Stanford University is ranked 2nd in the world’s university rankings. They also put a lot of effort into sports, and their baseball team is a strong team that has won the national championship twice in the past.

“I didn’t make this decision just based on my baseball career.I made a conscious decision that my outlook on life is not just momentary joy, but lifelong joy.” “Becoming a person who can study and play baseball is a great way to be a person. “This is a big theme in Rintaro Sasaki’s life. I hope I can pursue that goal while learning both my studies and baseball,” he said, pledging to balance his studies with his studies.

Regarding his high school seniors, Yusei Kikuchi (32) of the Blue Jays and Shohei Otani (29) of the Dodgers, he said, “Although we play in the same country, I am still immature as a baseball player, and I want to do my best to get one step closer.” I’d like to get some advice if you have any.”

The university suggested “3,” “17,” and “25” as his uniform number, but he revealed that he ultimately chose “3” because of his impression of Shigeo Nagashima.
