Participate in premiere 12 after season of 2015 when hit from fleet-footed good hit, and became able to see, and participate in eight games; and batting average of 35 at bats of nine hits. 257. We were not able to leave expected grade, but, in Warm-up Game with the Mexico Netherlands in November of the year chosen following game with Taiwan of March, 2016, we participate as Game 2 with Mexico in "the ninth, center" and play a part of three hits of four runs batted in. We set two hits for game with Netherlands to continue in "the first, center".
