Subject: INFINITE will throw ceremonial first pitch at upcoming Japanese baseball game
INFINITE will be throwing the ceremonial first pitch for an upcoming Japanese baseball game.
The boys will be heading over to Japan to throw the pitch for a match between the Softbank Hawks and the Chiba Lotte Marines on the 14th at the Fukuoka Yahoo! Dome. They’ll be putting on a congratulatory performance first, and then throw out the first pitch. Member L will be the receiving the honor of throwing the pitch, since he’s well known in Japan due to his drama.
According to Woollim Entertainment, Softbank requested that INFINITE come perform and throw the pitch. The Softbank Hawks recently launched the ‘K-pop Hawks Day’, a special day where Hallyu and baseball come together. INFINITE became the first guest for the ‘K-pop Hawks Day’ promotion.
Woollim Entertainment said, “Even though INFINITE is incredibly busy with their album problems, we agreed because of the Japanese fans’ and Softbank’s unending requests. We don’t have time to spend the night in Japan, so they’ll be returning back to Korea on the same day.”
A Japanese concert producer reported, “The hottest Hallyu singer in Japan recently is INFINITE. The members are so bright, so they naturally create opportunities to be with fans.“
