southwest just to watch him train. having glimpsed the phenomenon on the road. our search to find what all the fuss was about took us here to japan's northernmost island. it is home to the national champion baseball team, the nippon ham fighters and also home to the sports most intriguing prospect. and otani looms large in saporo. if tokyo is a fastball, saporo was a curveball. japan's fifth largest city feels not unlike a laid back ski village. this is a baseball town. and this is the home stadium, the saporo dome. it is here we sat down with otani. broke the ice with a question about what we had heard was his favorite local fast food. >> very important question. in and out burger? captain kangaroo burger? >> captain kangaroo. >> better? >> towering and affable, working on his english felt more
comfortable using translator. >> want to ask you about coming to the majors. if or when? should we say, if or when? >> that is a tough one. i mean, nothing is for certain, so i guess it is if. >> despite that cautious response, otani eagerly revealed which major league players he looks most forward to facing. no less than bryce harper, and star pitcher, clayton kershaw. i watch bryce harper, clayton kershaw. pitcher and hitter. yeah, unlike me. kershaw is lefty. >> see a little of yourself in kershaw and hafrper? >> i actually do see myself. i actually try throwing left yeefs some times. >> how do you think you do against kershaw. >> thinking of facing him. makes me happy, excited. i can tell he is a great pitcher through tv screen. >> how would you pitch to harper? >> would have to go with my best pitch, the fastball. i want o see how my best pitch
fares against one of the best hitters. >> likely, quite well. throwing his dancing fastball. he strikes out battlers in a hyperrate than kershaw. and unfurling his violent, elegant swing he hits home runs in a hyperrate than harper. there are days, otani makes baseball look laughably easy. consider this performance last summer. on the very first pitch of the game, otani, batting leadoff hit a home run. he then pitched eight shuttleout innings and struck out 10 batters. at 6'4", the designated hitter turned pitcher reliably brings the crowd to its feet. when he threw the fastest pit,
breaking his record, opponents looked on in astonishment. last year you threw a pitch. 165 kilometers an hour. more than 102 miles an hour. how much faster can you throw than 102.5? >> i don't have an exact answer for that. but i am still young. i thin thrk is more room to grow. as seasons go. 2016 will be hard to top. the ham fighters took the japan series. otani was the league mvp. about the name, fighters are owned by nippon ham. makers of japan any best selling sausages. and while yes the name resists serious treatment, the team itself is widely regarded as the most innovative in the league.

last year when we won the chich it was the first time he gave me a compliment. he said that was great pitching. >> never complimented you before that. >> not once. he always says, you have got to and, he has his reasons. now.uly believe he is a lot the crowd at the saporo dome is less stingy with the praise. you don't get a lot of quiet time here. no peanuts. cracker jacks, either. plenf atmosphere pervades. the caliber of play is considered one level below the top japanese players, names like, ichiro, and matsui aspire the u.s. amid such sum pane, otani steps out. jon gibson reported on japanese base fall for 20 years.
>> what is it like covering this guy. a guy throws 1000. a guy who hits home runs. not somebody thing abut in real life. nobody does that. who does that? >> we had hoped to leave the dome with otani, get to know the mortal behind the comic book character. he politely declined. not a quick captain kangaroo burger. so we invited a couple of his teammates instead. brandon laird, louis mendoza two foreign players. laird, saw action as a yankee. mendoza once pitched for the royals. saporo not a bad place. over dinner at their favorite spot in town. laird told us that otani its most talented teammate he ever had. this from a guy who played with

privilege. even baseball tedium provide enjoyment. this is some body who plays baseball but always worked at it too. otani grew up in a small industrial town on japan's mainland. his father once an amateur player, coached his little league teams. and he showed promise as the a hitter, but drew more interest as a pitcher. and occasioning visits from scouts when he was still in high school. at age 18 he held a press conference to announce intentions went so far as to tell japanese teams not to draft him. but the nippon ham fighters known for doing things, drafted him nonetheless to. watch he full report go to our website. cbs news.com. and click on 60 minutes. we'll be right back.
