Japanese baseball manager flies hoverbike into dramatic entrance at home opener

Bestinau got that-

Tsuyoshi Shinjo, aka ‘Big Boss’, made an exciting entrance in his first home game of the season as manager of the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters by flying a hoverbike into the center of the stadium.

The 50-year-old former Major League Baseball (MLB) player wore a red jacket, white pants and a face helmet as he theatrically maneuvered the hovercraft over the Sapporo Dome to intense music and lighting.

After landing, he dramatically removed his helmet, got out of the vehicle and threw aside his red coat.

His grand entrance may have stolen the show as the Fighters lost to the Saitama Seibu Lions by a score of 4-0.

Shinjo became the first Japanese baseball player to compete in the World Series in 2002. He played three seasons for the New York Mets and San Francisco Giants from 2001 to 2003 before playing for the Fighters of 2004 to 2006

The “Big Boss” was hired as the manager of Fighters in October 2021. The team won the Japan Series in 2006 and 2016 and has spawned MLB stars such as Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels.
