Kamenashi Kazuya meets his baseball hero at Panasonic event

KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi Kazuya failed to hide his excitement while meeting former pro baseball player, and current sports reporter, Furuta Atsuya at an event for Panasonic.
The event was called Panasonic BEAUTY – a line for men’s electronic products – which Kamenashi Kazuya promotes. Even though Kamenashi was there to promote the products, he couldn’t help but talk about baseball all throughout the event with Furuta. Kamenashi is a big fan of baseball, and has been playing it since he was a child. He was good enough to have played for Japan when he was younger, but chose to focus on the entertainment industry.
“He’s the player that I’ve followed before. I can’t believe I’m meeting him,” said Kamenashi in an interview.
While Kamenashi was still dazed from meeting his sports idol, Furuta commented that he’s as happy to be able to meet the JE star. “My wife is a big fan of him and asked me to take a lot of pictures with him,” said Furuta. He also gave Kamenashi some advice about work as a TV sports reporter.
It was a good thing Kamenashi still managed to promote the product despite being distracted by baseball. Kamenashi said that he hopes that more people will use the products, whether it’s a man or a woman.
