What will be the future of former Rakuten Golden Eagles pitcher Tomohiro Anraku, who repeatedly assaulted and sexually harassed junior players?
Anraku, who established himself as a key member of the Rakuten team by achieving double-digit holds for three consecutive years, including reaching 25 holds in 2021

‘Daily Gendai’ also said, “Korea is more strict than Japan. He added, “If you are caught drunk driving, you will be expelled immediately.”
